Registrations Open for Circular Advantage 2021

Is the Circular Economy on your radar as an emerging opportunity?

If you are unfamiliar with the term, when applied to business strategy, the circular economy is a new approach that applies Japanese kaizen principles and design thinking to enhance profits through resource optimisation

Circular Advantage is an executive education program designed to help organisations produce an impactful circular economy strategy.  Developed by Dr. Scott Valentine of KPMG, Circular Advantage is delivered online through 18-modules over five months.  There is considerable focus on collaboration, and the program seeks to assist companies in understanding the circular economy and its application to their business.  All 20 companies in last year’s program developed critical new insights to improve their operations’ efficiency by considering the way they do business through a circular economy lens.

This year, the Circular Advantage program is being rolled out nationally with the support of Planet Ark and Circular Economy Victoria.

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.

Harry Tan overseeing another successful project delivery at Acrodyne

This application required some very tight valve control associated with a gas application in Australia.

Limitorque QX actuators were selected for a number of reasons including their ability to finely tune the loop as well as their reliable and rugged reputation in the Australian Gas industry.

Harry Tan has a wealth of application knowledge, he is more than happy to discuss your requirements.

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.
