Acrogears Declutchable Worm Gearbox. The Acrogears Declutchable worm gearbox is generally used for emergency manual override as part of pneumatic actuator systems. The Acrogears gearbox incorporates a unique “one-handed” declutch function, simplifying multiple lever-lock systems for a smooth transition during manual operation, in addition the push-button to enable lever movement is padlockable, ensuring unauthorised use.

Stem Tube Covers

What can be said about valve stem tube covers? infact a lot. These rising indicator stem tube covers are for a local refinery for use in a tank farm. The rising indicator is weighted meaning that the top of the stem does not require threading to attach the indicator rod.

Meet Jon Bayly, nothing brings a bigger smile to Jon’s face more than another successful job going out the door.

Pictured are the gearboxes just out of the paint shop, all gearboxes feature local position indicators and pad lockable hand wheels.
