CUSTOMISED LIMITORQUE L120, EMERGENCY HYDRAULIC OPERATION

The challenge was to build a series of actuators that operated at a constant load for over an hour without a rest, provide provision for emergency operation in the event of a power failure and include all of the features of a fully optioned smart actuator.

Limitorque’s L120 fitted the requirement perfectly. The application is to operate weir gates controlling flow and level, The L120 included the standard UEX-Smart Actuator package, extended duty/low current motor and a specially designed drive sleeve that permitted additional friction bearings to better support the hydraulic motor.

Once built, the completed actuators were subject to extensive testing on our torque test bench located at our Melbourne facility.
