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.

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!
