May 8, 2019Being a premium supplier of Valve Actuators in Australia is only part of the complete package. Support and after sales service make up an enormous part of our operations, knowing that this is a critical customer requirement. This is a photo of a stem nut we are making for a major refinery in Geelong, Frank has machined this from blank aluminium/bronze, its to suit an older Limitorque actuator, finishing off the stem nut including screw cutting will be completed this morning, ready to have our customer back and operational.
May 1, 2019This 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.
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.
