ACRODYNE, ACROMATIC ACTUATORS AND SOLENOIDS and SPECIAL FB-BALL VALVES

This application is to replace older valves on a glandwater cooling system fitted to large pumps at one of Melbourne Water pump stations.

The valves were specially made to fit into existing face-to-face dimensions enabling a smooth changeover.

Another Andrew Hartley project for Melbourne Water.

Acrodyne can make your old actuators as good a new

Alongside building Limitorque electric actuators, we also repair, service and field assist/commission both weather-proof and Explosion-proof hazardous area actuators under AS3800 (Electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres)

This actuator has had a routine PM, every aspect of the actuator is inspected, the actuator is then subject to an intense testing regime with our specialized testing equipment as seen with our expert technician Frank.

Once completed, this L120 will be returned to Melbourne Water with the performance and reliability of a new actuator.

AUSTRALIAN BUILT LIMITORQUE L120 AND MX ELECTRIC ACTUATORS FOR STIRLING DAM

Stirling Dam is located east of Harvey WA with construction commencing in the 1940’s, Stirling Dam has a capacity of 50.56 GL.

Limitorque products have been used extensively throughout Water Corporation assets spanning more than 50 years, the actuators pictured were made to order in Australia, supported locally by our Bibra Lake based facility and team.

Acrodyne Commission Limitorque MX Actuators operating AWMA layflat gates

We recently commissioned 2 sets of Limitorque MX actuators with multiturn wormgear box fitted to AWMA cable driven layflat gates, the application is flow control providing class C treated water for irrigation.

The gates were made in regional Victoria while the actuators were built to order in Melbourne.

What’s A Reasonable Time To Wait?

It’s an unfortunate fact of life that equipment failure may occur at some point.

When that piece of equipment is a critical control element in a water treatment plant or in a hazardous area environment, a solution needs to be fast-tracked.

For this very reason, Acrodyne Pty Ltd have introduced a QRC (Quick Response Centre) in Australia, having the ability to build Limitorque electric actuators, the capacity to machine adaption components and provide protective coatings is the answer.

Pictured are Limitorque MX actuators, these can be built the SAME DAY!

Problem Solved – Portable Actuator Adaption for Melbourne Water

This is a job Andrew Hartley successfully delivered to Melbourne Water a little while ago, the task was to operate a number of very old and very large gate valves via our portable actuator system.

Strict adherence to preserving the integrity of some very old assets was of the utmost importance and to achieve this a significant amount of effort was focused on torque protection.

Andrew’s design included some very special bracketry, the inclusion of gearboxes where required and permanently mounted over-torque protectors, the site then utilized our petrol-powered actuator across all valves.

Congratulations on a great result, and as can be seen Andrew is also very proud of his accomplishments.

What Is A Fair Lifetime For An Actuator?

This is a Limitorque model SMA built at the Limitorque UK facility and installed at a major Queensland dam in the late 1960s.

The unit was returned to us for evaluation, apart from some minimal wear on the worm gear the actuator received new bearings, seals gaskets, etc., a fresh coat of paint and it was proudly returned back to service.

Judging by the condition at 50 plus years of service, I would confidently say it would easily provide another 50 years of reliable service.

Acrodyne is full steam ahead

A steam application where the requirement was to operate 2 x valves in exact unison, the solution we came up with was to utilise an AcroGear gearbox with dual outputs.

A little bit of creative engineering, design and component fabrication and the end result functioned perfectly.

Innovation is one of Acrodyne’s integral values. We will continue to go out of our way to ensure that our customers are fully supported at a local level by 100% Australian owned and operated company.

Acrodyne remain open and practice social distancing and hygiene procedures to safely service your needs thru these difficult times. Stay Safe.
