Harry Tan overseeing another successful project delivery at AcrodyneMarch 11, 2021
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.

What Is A Fair Lifetime For An Actuator?March 4, 2021
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.
