The Limitorque MXa electric actuator from Flowserve has been an industry standard since its introduction in 1997. The MXb actuator is Limitorque’s next-generation, high-performance unit, offering superior reliability, precision, enhanced analytics and a streamlined user experience.
The Limitorque MXb electric actuator is designed to perform across a broad range of tough applications where reliability is critical, including oil and gas; fresh and wastewater; chemical; commercial power; and general industries.
An updated user interface coupled with a simplified, intuitive menu structure and larger, high-resolution LCD screen makes navigation easy and enables 50% faster commissioning, setup and operation. Real-time torque graphs, alarm and event logs, and other data are accessible in higher-quality resolution.
The MXb actuator has 500 times the memory capacity of the previous MX model, allowing increased data capture and storage for higher degrees of process monitoring, data logging and information feedback.
A new electric connector design removes the needs for brackets and hold-downs, making maintenance easier and faster. And the enhanced connector design ensures robust connectivity throughout the rated seismic and vibration envelope.
