Description: The Novatek hydropowered linear motor is a reciprocating motor, single or double-acting that has a high force output and is capable of slow speed operation. This makes it ideal for applications requiring fine control, such as a driver for emulsion explosive pumps. It has the following features: • Simple on/off valve is required; various types may be used. • The motor automatically cycles until the valve is released. • The output piston reciprocates at the rate of about 1 Hz or less (depending on stroke length). This speed can be controlled via orificing. • Force, stroke and speed can be changed within the design parameters. The Novatek linear motor is used on hydropowered emulsion explosive loaders. Applications include: • Pumping of emulsion explosives into blastholes. • Pumping of grout into support holes.
