ACTUATOR TESTING
13.1
All areas, where leakage to atmosphere may occur, are to be checked using a commercial
leak testing solution.
13.2
All leak testing will use 65 psig pressure.
13.3
If excessive leakage across the piston is noted (generally a bubble which breaks three
seconds or less after starting to form), the actuator must be disassembled and the cause of
leakage must be determined and corrected.
13.4
Before testing for leaks, alternately apply and release 65 psi pressure to the each side of
the piston to stroke the actuator fully. Repeat this cycle approximately five times. This will
allow the new seals to seek their service condition.
13.5
Apply 65 psig pressure to the pressure port in the outer end cap (2-30).
13.6
Apply a leak testing solution to the following areas:
13.6.1 Joint between the outer end cap (2-30) and the cylinder (2-10). Checks cylinder to
end cap o-ring seal.
13.6.2 Around the tie bar nuts (2-90) on the cylinder outer end cap (2-30). Checks tie
bars to outer end cap o-ring seals.
13.6.3 The pressure inlet port in the inner end cap (2-40). Checks piston to cylinder,
piston to tie bar, and piston to piston rod seals.
13.6.4 Remove pressure from pressure inlet port in the outer end cap.
13.7
Apply 65 psig pressure to the pressure port in the inner end cap (2-40).
13.8
Apply a leak testing solution to the following areas:
13.8.1 Joint between the inner end cap (2-40) and the cylinder (2-10). Checks cylinder to
inner end cap o-ring seal.
Bettis P/N 074976

13.8.2 Around the joint of inner end cap (2-40) and the housing (1-10). Checks tie bars to
inner end cap o-ring seals and the inner end cap to housing gasket seal (3-10).
13.8.3 The snubber valve port hole in the housing cover (1-20). Checks the rod seal and
the tie bars to end cap o-ring seals.
13.8.4 Remove pressure from pressure inlet port in the inner end cap.
13.9
14.0
If an actuator was disassembled and repaired, the above leakage test must be performed
again.
M8 HYDRAULIC CONTROL PACKAGE INSTALLATION
CAUTION:
The unit must be mounted with reservoir upright with the pump shaft
horizontal.
CAUTION:
Do not use Teflon tape to seal hydraulic system threads.
14.1
If the M8 Control Package is not remote mounted then re-install the M8 control package (8)
on the hydraulic cylinder (4-10).
14.2
NOTE: Recommend that a non hardening thread sealant, compatible with petroleum base
hydraulic fluid be used in this system. Hook up piping from the M8 hydraulic speed control
block to cylinder ports.
14.3
M8 Refilling Instructions - Refilling of the M8 hydraulic control system and actuator
cylinder is best accomplished using a pressure pump. Put the actuator in the open
position (CCW) and proceed using the following steps.
14.3.1 Remove the breather from the reservoir.
14.3.2 Attach the pump discharge line to reservoir breather port (3/8" NPT port).
14.3.3 Loosen the hex jam nuts on both speed control valves.
14.3.4 Open (turn out or counter-clockwise) both speed control valves.
14.3.5 Open the two bleed valves located at each end of the hydraulic cylinders.
14.3.6 Slowly pump hydraulic fluid into the reservoir. Approximately 3 to 5 psi will be
required.
14.3.7 As the fluid passes through the M8 control module into the cylinder, air will be
displaced.
14.3.8 Close each bleed valve when the air has been displaced and hydraulic fluid
appears.
14.3.9 Add or remove fluid in the reservoir so that the level is at lease 1-1/2 inches (25 to
40 mm) from the top of the reservoir with the actuator in the same position as step no. 14.3.
14.3.10 Install the reservoir breather.

14.3.11 Connect power supply to the actuator power cylinder and cycle the actuator.
14.3.12 Adjust the speed control valves for desired operating speed.
14.3.13 Tighten the hex jam nuts on the speed control valves.
14.4
Alternate Refilling Instructions - Refilling the M8 hydraulic control system, during field
service, often must be done without the use of a pressure pump. Proceed as follows:
14.4.1 On hydraulic cylinder on which M8 system is mounted, the piston must be stroked
toward outboard side of the actuator, actuator open position (CCW).
14.4.2 Fill hydraulic cylinder(s) with fluid by removing bleed valves at the top of the
cylinder.
CAUTION:
The bleed valves are 1/8 npt and are made out of brass. Use only
the correct size wrench. Refer to tool list at the end of this
procedure for recommended wrench style and correct wrench size.
Do not use pliers or other style adjustable wrench for bleed valve
removal.
14.4.3 Remove the breather from the reservoir port.
14.4.4 Fill the reservoir. Maintain at least 1-1/2 inches (25 to 40 mm) of fluid within the
reservoir at all times.
14.4.5 Replace the bleed valves at the top of the hydraulic cylinder.
14.4.6 During the fill procedure, it is important that the reservoir hydraulic fluid lowest level
be not less than approximately one-fourth (1/4) of the reservoir volume at any time.
14.4.7 If needed add hydraulic fluid to the reservoir. Maintain at least 1-1/2 inches (25 to
40 mm) of fluid within the reservoir at all times.
14.4.8 Install the reservoir breather.
14.4.9 Connect power supply to the actuator power cylinder and cycle the actuator.
14.4.10 Adjust the speed control valves for desired operating speed.
14.4.11 Tighten the hex jam nuts on the speed control valves.

RETURN TO SERVICE
15.1
Replace the software components of the snubber (1-90) and then install the snubber in the
housing cover port.
15.2
Adjust both stop screws (1-60) back to settings recorded in section five step 5.2.
15.3
Tighten both stop screw nuts (1-120) securely, while holding the stop screw (1-60).
15.4
After the actuator is installed on the valve all accessories should be hooked up and tested
for proper operations and replaced, if found defective.

INFORMATION NOTES
16.1
Actuators manufactured before 1973 will have a hex lock nut retaining the piston on the
piston rod. This hex lock nut is used in place of the split rings and split ring retainers.
16.2
Actuators manufactured before 1978 did not use the roller spacers (1-110). When replacing
the rollers on pre 1978 actuators order a complete set of both rollers and roller spacers, four
in number rollers and four in number roller spacers.
WARNING:
16.3
If rollers (1-50) are replaced without ordering and installing a complete set
of four in number rollers (1-50) and roller spacers (1-110) the top roller to
cover "track engagement" will be insufficient to produce max torque output
and the actuator may experience failure.
On outer and inner end caps some o-rings are held in place by "staked" washers. Check all
end caps to ensure washers are secured. If needed re-stake washers.
