Lets get visual

May 1, 2019

This IECEx Limitorque MXa-40 actuator is leaving our warehouse today for installation into a local refinery. The customer needs visual indication of their process and they also need the stem tube cover to be well protected in a tough environment. Our solution is to wrap it up in a protective stainless steel design and as the valve’s spindle rises the sliding stem tube lifts incrementally giving the operator the best of both worlds.

PORTABLE ACTUATORS FOR VALVES AND PENSTOCKS

Manual opening and closing of valves, penstocks and sluice gates equipped with a hand bevel gearbox can be very difficult to perform, often involving two (or more) persons, and requiring several hours of physical work. Acrodyne’s Portable Valve Actuators APB/APS are the ultimate devices to simplify and speed-up all these interventions, allowing one single operator to quickly (and easily) intervene on several manual gearbox reducers – and in total safety.
