Limitorque MX-10 actuator and an AVK 300mm resilient seated gate valve package on final test prior to releasing to South East Water. The application is to balance water level in 2 x tanks, the ability of the MX with its Absolute Position Encoder to resolve to fractions of millimetres was a perfect fit for the job.

Stocks solid despite strong sales

Recent projects have challenged our Quick Response stock levels in Melbourne, however there is always sufficient in reserve to meet the demands of Quick Response to meet your needs with Limitorque actuators and gearboxes. Our stock of Acrogears bevels, worms and spurs in combination with local supply of Limitorque MX’s can meet almost any application you may have.

Our 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.
