NH3 (Anhydrous Ammonia) Hydraulic Rotary Actuators & Ball Valves

In-line Hydraulic Rotary Actuator - Catalog No.R-6572

nh3 hydraulic actuator

Our NH3 (anhydrous ammonia) hydraulic actuators are in-line rotary actuators (Catalog No. R-6572). As a leading manufacturer of hydraulic actuators, Continental's in-line hydraulic rotary actuator is designed to be mounted quickly and easily on any NH3 metering device. Using standard 1/4" ports for hydraulic hook-up makes this shutoff easily integrated with any tractors hydraulic system. The R-9500 uses a rotor actuated ball valve insuring along and maintenance free life. Available in 1" or 1-1/4" models.

Features:

  • Standard 1/4" FNPT Ports
  • Corrosion Resistant
  • Stainless Steel Rotor
  • On & Off Indicator Flag
  • Easy Installation
  • Low Maintenance.

hydraulic actuator how to CAUTION:
1) Adaptors are preset at factory.
2) Overtightening may cause casting to crack.
3) Always use backup wrench on adaptors when connecting hydraulic lines.
WARNING: In the event of a tractor power failure where it becomes necessary to shutoff the hydraulic actuator, disconnect both hydraulic lines at the actuator body and manually turn flag of actuator to the "off" positions.

To avoid cross threading or galling use lead base anti-seize thread sealant (available through Continental).

Features:

  • Available in 1" FPT or 1-1/4" FPT
  • ON/OFF indicator flag
  • Stainless steel rotor and shaft for maximum corrosion resistance
  • Steel resistors stop hydraulic fluid from slamming against the rotor body
  • Contamination dump prevents ammonia from entering hydraulic system
  • Vented ball allows any trapped ammonia to escape

Notice:
The R-9590 does not use a "positive seal". It will allow pressure to bleed back to the return line.

Continental recommends that these hydraulic actuators have a separate and isolated spool valve control.

These actuators require 1/4" hydraulic hoses and fittings.
