Let's Talk Kinetrol!

The most reliable 1/4 turn Pneumatic Actuator on the market today

Let's Talk Kinetrol!

The most reliable 1/4 turn Pneumatic Actuator on the market today

Kinetrol was established as a firm of control engineers in 1958. Initially, the company’s activities were based on its damping expertise which led to the development of Kinetrol’s rotary viscous dashpots for smooth motion control.

Kinetrol later invented and patented its vane-type rotary pneumatic actuator, recognising the emerging need for quarter-turn valve and mechanism actuation.

Kinetrol, with full inspection and test facilities, operates a rigorous quality control programme which includes 100% functional testing of products and full serial number traceability. Their quality system is approved to ISO 9001 (2015).

“Success comes from our determination for excellence.”
