May 14, 2021Harry Tan proudly posing with his Limitorque MX and QX actuators that have been operating without fault for many years. In addition to producing weatherproof versions, we are now building IECEX Hazardous Area units in Australia, the units pictured are all ex-stock Australia ready to be built to site requirements.
May 13, 2021Acrodyne are pleased to announce after many hours of work together with auditors and international visitors from various agencies that we have been officially recognised as — “Additional Manufacturing Location” by IECEx to produce Limitorque MX-A, MX-B and QX electric valve actuators for hazardous areas conforming to IECEx requirements.
April 19, 2021Beck electric actuator crated up and ready to make its way to Queensland for installation in a major power station facility. The Beck unit will be operating an ID fan, the Beck unit is an extremely unique device by design which sets it apart from traditional actuators employing worm gear principal.
March 31, 2021These units literally walk out the door! either mounted to a valve or actuator supply only. The AcroTorq SA series is a 90 degree electric actuator, (optional 270-Deg), IP67 enclosure with manual override and an illuminated local indicator dome. The smallest unit is rated to 30Nm and the the largest in the SR range is 90Nm, operational on single phase or 24VDC.
March 29, 2021Richard preparing some valve extensions prior to assembly of valves and actuators. Our production team play a critical role in our overall capabilities in assisting in the best solutions for our actuation products, having the ability to design, fabricate and build actuators in-house is truly unique.
March 26, 2021Frank Busse is doing some final checks-offs on a Limitorque L120 actuator prior to delivery to Loy Yang power station in the Latrobe Valley. Limitorque actuators have had a long service history with the plant since the early 1980’s spanning models including HMB, SMC, L120 and MX, the L120’s are optioned with extended duty motors which also have dual voltage connections, in addition we include an RVDT (Rotary variable differential transformer) providing loop powered 4-20madc output, the unit is a non-contacting device.
March 24, 2021We 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.
March 19, 2021QRC (Quick Response Centre) to us means many things, one of which is having in-house capability in completing the adaption process. Our in-house automation centre ensures major infra-structure facilities are back on-line with minimal disruption, this is a significant factor in the QRC process.
March 17, 2021Almost ready to be dispatched, 16 sets of Aussie built-to-order Limitorque MX10 actuators and AVK Flow Control Pty Ltd DN300 Knife Gate Valves complete with extensions. Final destination is one of Melbourne Water major wastewater treatment facilities. All actuators include Modbus with TCP/IP incorporating a simple Ethernet connection located within the MX double sealed terminal compartment.
March 16, 2021This application required some very tight valve control associated with a gas application in Australia. Limitorque QX actuators were selected for a number of reasons including its ability to finely tune the loop as well as its reliable and rugged reputation in the Australian Gas industry.
