Beck Actuator in for a well deserved inspection

September 11, 2020

This actuator is manufactured by Harold Beck and Sons who have been making extremely unique actuators since 1936. This Beck actuator has been working relentlessly performing millions of cycles in one of the harshest environments at a steel plant in the Illawarra.

Another Solar Install Completed

September 9, 2020

has successfully completed another commissioning sign-off on a solar installation for Melbourne Water, this one is located at McMahons Creek. Our scope included–Limitorque MX actuators, Acrotorque gearbox’s, new stems, adapter plates and stem protection covers. The Limitorque MX series is a maintenance free actuator perfectly suited to remoteness of the application.

PORTABLE VALVE ACTUATOR

August 4, 2020

What appears to be a standard industrial drill is infact a specially built Portable Actuator with special motor and gearbox. In addition we have included an over-torque protector to limit the potential maximum torque output of the actuator. Our process of selecting a portable actuator is identical to that when we determine a conventional actuator for any application, the actuator is sized correctly for the application, providing full torque protection therefore preventing asset damage.

Limitorque Actuator Installation & Commissioning

Six Limitorque MX Electric Actuators fitted to Australian Water Engineers (AWE) Penstock/Flow Control Gates controlling tidal level control at The Point Estate at Point Lonsdale situated on the Bellarine Peninsula. The project essentially is a residential development situated amongst a vast waterway, Penstocks/Actuators will control inflow and outflows to the tidal water body whilst preventing stagnation and associated water quality issues in the constructed waterway.    Significant design and functionality to achieve control to a predetermined limit inclusive of factors such as peak storm surge, sea-level, sea current, climate conditions and catchment discharges, had to be taken into consideration.

Out with the old, in with a new Limitorque QX Actuator

Unfortunately its a fact of life equipment failure occurs even with relatively new products. The existing actuator ceased to follow it’s demand signal and a Turn-Key solution was required–FAST! Our Western Australian team engaged, made a site visit to the remote location to determine the requirement and come up with a solution.
