September 4, 2019Limitorque 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.
August 21, 2019Another Aunspach D80 torque limiter and Acrogears Bevel Gearbox for final assembly. This assembly is destined for a coastal waste water treatment plant and will be retrofitted to an existing penstock. The trip torque (52Nm) has been factory calibrated by Acrodyne and will provide peace of mind and confidence to the operator ensuring no damage and Zero Harm whilst using the ACROGEARS APS140N petrol driven portable actuator.
August 7, 2019Limitorque MXa electric actuators successfully commissioned in a wastewater treatment plant for their recent upgrade to not only add colour to site but more importantly to increase its capacity and to ensure water used by the area’s steadily growing population continues to be managed in a safe and sustainable manner.
July 31, 2019Acrogear Bevel Gear Operator fitted to a Vent-O-Mat RF Pinch Valve during final set-up. The valve is supplied to us in complete knock down inclusive of a retrofit kit for either manual (via gearbox) or electric operation. The RF Pinch valve is fully assembled in our Melbourne facility, inclusive of screw cutting drive nut, inserting liner etc and stem tube cover.
July 24, 2019Our Limitorque L120 test cell may look dated when compared to our state of the art Smart-Actuator End-Of-Line test facility, however it still plays a valuable part in our overall Actuator Automation build, repair and test processes. Having the ability to custom build valve actuators in Australia backed up with the capacity to fully functional test each unit inclusive of torque vs current analysis at varying voltages via our variac means we can simulate actual field conditions, ensuring the performance of every actuator we build and test.
July 10, 2019Pictured are Limitorque SMB actuators close coupled to HBC worm gearboxes, these actuators are operating radial gates via cable drums with “slack rope detection devices” This job was version “2” Limitorque actuators were quoted, however lost to our competitor, soon after our competitor’s actuators wouldn’t raise the gates, we were re-engaged to provide the solution.
