Another valve package from our QRC (Quick Response Centre). Pictured is a 150mm Butterfly valve, mounted with a AcroMatic Pneumatic Actuator and AcroMatic Smart Positioner, the complete assembly is totally set-up ready for a simple site installation, no need to set end stops, no need to calibrate or program the positioner, its all done.

ACROGEAR Gearboxes

Acrogear Bevel Gear Operators can be configured for almost if not all applications. What makes Acrogears unique is the ability to be manually operated, close coupled to an electric actuator, used in conjunction with a chainwheel or via a portable actuator which are becoming mainstream these days.

Acrodyne – Development and Innovation

Meet Jon Bayly, nothing brings a bigger smile to Jon’s face more than another successful job going out the door. The final product looks like it was made for the Acrogears Bevel Gearbox, however there is a lot of work in modifying a standard Kim Diaphragm Valve to make it suitable for an alternate way to operate it.

ACROGEARS BEVEL GEAR OPERATORS AND PORTABLE ACTUATOR

September 18, 2019

Our process in selecting a portable actuator for easy and safe operation of valves is inline with the same principals used when sizing any actuator for automatic valve operation, this is the difference between an industrial tool and a purpose built and correctly sized portable actuator.

ACROGEARS BEVEL GEAR OPERATORS FOR FIRE SERVICE

The red paint is an instant give-away, however another batch of specially coated bevel gearboxes operating gate valves on critical fire service application at a local Exxon Mobil facility. Pictured are the gearboxes just out of the paint shop, all gearboxes feature local position indicators and pad lockable hand wheels.

Limitorque LPS Pneumatic Scotch Yoke Heavy-Duty Actuators

Limitorque LPS Pneumatic Scotch Yoke Heavy-Duty Actuators retrofitted to existing DN600 inlet butterfly valves to prevent untreated raw water passing into and through the plants without chemical dosing. The Limitorque actuators will enable the plant to implement a ‘fail close’ strategy for the inlet valves.

Different colour but still a Limitorque

Some preparation work for an AVK Flow Control job, this project is utilising Wouter Witzel Butterfly Valves with Vulcanized Liner and Limitorque MX Actuators. The requirement by the customer is C5 painting to a specific color, all Actuators and Gearboxes were coated in house.
