  • Limitorque Electric Actuators

    The Limitorque product range includes actuators that are controlled from a customer’s motor control center to electronic actuators. More than 1 million Limitorque actuators are installed around the world; some have been in operation for more than 50 years. The ruggedness and reliability of Limitorque electric actuators is the primary reason that customers continue to select Limitorque products.

    Flowserve Limitorque is the world’s oldest supplier of intrusive, electromechanical multi-turn actuators and continues to produce the world class L120 and SMB series of electric actuators. Features and benefits include the modular L120 designed for ease of assembly, ruggedness, flexibility, etc.

    Flowserve Limitorque is the world’s oldest supplier of intrusive, electromechanical multi-turn actuators and continues to produce the world class L120 and SMB series of electric actuators.   Features and benefits include the modular L120 designed for ease of assembly, ruggedness and flexibility, and the most reliable and tested electric actuator available, the SMB.  Torque ranges from 100 lb.ft./136 Nm up to 20000 lb.ft./27200 Nm and can be coupled to Limitorque’s gearboxes for additional mechanical advantage.

    Flowserve Limitorque is a world class supplier of the non-intrusive, electronic multi-turn MX series of actuators. Features and benefits include patented absolute encoders w/ redundancy (B.I.S.T. – Built-in-self-test) and configuration, operation, and diagnostics in eleven languages. A full suite of network protocols are available including Modbus, Foundation Fieldbus H1, Profibus DP w/ Redundancy and Profibus PA, DeviceNet, and HART. Torque ranges from 55 lb.ft./73 Nm up to 1700 lb.ft./2307 Nm and can be coupled to Limitorque’s gearboxes for additional mechanical advantage.

    Actuators requiring 90° of rotation to operate are necessary for quarter-turn valves such as ball, butterfly, plug and dampers, and rotary control valves. These types of Limitorque electric actuators are available for operations such as open-close, modulating, network and rotary service. The QX is the Flowserve Limitorque product for the quarter-turn valve market up to 1500 ft-lb. Beyond that range any of the multi-turn products can be assembled with WG or HBC 90° worm gearbox operators to increase torque range and mechanical advantage.

  • Scotch Yoke Pneumatic Actuators Series 25

    The Scotch Yoke Pneumatic Actuators Series 25 mechanism produces torque that closely matches the required torque characteristic of most quarter-turn valves. As per the characteristic of the valve, the scotch-yoke produces its highest torque at the start and the end of each stroke, providing maximum torque at opening & closing of the valve.

    As the piston moves, the length of the moment arm is changing constantly. Because the effective moment arm is longest at the start and the end of the stroke (L2), the starting torque (torque output at the start and the end of a stroke) approaches nearly twice the magnitude of the minimum torque (L1) (torque output at the shortest moment arm length). Thus, scotch yoke mechanism torque output allows the use of a smaller piston, shorter moment arm and lower operating pressures than many other mechanisms.
