March 24, 2021

We are often requested to provide our Tamper-Proof-Covers for a number of reasons, including concealment of switches, local display and indicator lights in public areas or to permit large size lock clasps that normally would not fit onto the standard local-off-remote selector switch.

Limitorque MX Mounting to Knife Gate Valves

March 22, 2021

Actuators have been built, stem nuts screw cut and thrust bases adapted to the knife gate valves, the next step is assembly, set-up and test and if required video FAT for our customer. For us the process is easy, logistics are simplified and a fully tested actuator/valve package ready for installation streamlines the complete process.

Limitorque MX Actuator QRC Mounting

Limitorque SMC Actuator SWOP Outfall

February 24, 2021

This unit was installed in 1987 at the McGaurans Beach ocean outfall site known as SWOP (Saline Water Outfall Pipeline). The Limitorque SMC is fitted to a regulator valve and operated via a VSD (variable speed drive), I remember during commissioning the harmonics produced by lack of filtering by early VSD’s, fortunately VSD’s have progressed significantly since those days.
