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.

Having reliability issues? Come talk to Acrodyne, the Australian Actuator Company.

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.

-24 vdc multiturn applications, direct drive as well as gearbox combinations, potentially up to 25,000Nm and 116,000Nm for 90 degree applications

-Options for Battery packs
-Options for Solar panels
-Options for RTU’s etc
