Flowserve Announces New DC Input Power Capability



Flowserve Corporation recently announced the availability of 24 - to 48 -volt DC-input power for all sizes of Flowserve Limitorque QX electronic valve actuators.

While primarily designed to meet the needs of remote, low-voltage DC applications in the offshore oil and gas industry, this capability can also be used in commercial power, solar power and water applications.

“The new DC power capability completes the Limitorque QX product line and helps secure the Flowserve position as a premier electronic heavy-duty actuator supplier to the oil and gas industry,” said Bill Lyon, Director, research and development, Flowserve Flow Control Division. “The QX offers reliability for remote applications that require an uninterrupted power supply but cannot use single or three-phase AC volts.”

The electronic controls in the Limitorque QX actuators with DC volt capability are 100 percent digital with no moving parts, making them more reliable than electro-mechanical devices. Additionally, the QX software provides a torque boost to overcome excessive valve torque when pulling the valve out of the seat.

The Limitorque QX is a quarter-turn and limited multi-turn, smart electronic valve actuator designed to enhance safety and reduce downtime through improved diagnostics, built-in self-test (BIST) features, and LimiGard™ fault protection capabilities.
