Festo debuts configurable linear actuator for process applications

August 17, 2021  By P&PC Staff

Festo has introduced the DFPC double-acting linear actuator optimized for various process applications in pulp and paper, wastewater treatment, mining and steel industries.

It’s available in either standard, pre-configured versions, or individually configurable versions. The latter can be ordered with different stroke lengths of the space bolts, piston rods of differing lengths, and different thread types and diameters, even adapted for ATEX II 2GD certification.

DFPC has been specially designed for actuating process valves types such as gate, knife-gate and pinch valves, or valve bodies without housing.


The piston rods, screws, nuts and tie rods are made of stainless steel, while the cylinder barrels and end caps are made of aluminum. This ensures that the actuators have a long service life. The end-position cushioning on both sides enables high travel speeds.

There are interfaces for process valve to ISO 5210 and ISO 15552 with extended tie rods. Proximity switches, mountings for position sensing and Namur adapter plate are available as accessories.

The DFPC is available currently with strokes of up to 1600 mm and in the sizes 80 to 200.
