Flowserve Limitorque Launches The MT Series Of Bevel Gear Operators
DALLAS - September 29, 2005 - Flowserve Corp., a global provider of fluid motion and control products and services, announces the launch of the Limitorque Actuation Systems MT series of bevel gear operators. The MT series operators are optimized to deliver reliable performance in power industry valve applications.Designed as a superior combination of a bevel gear operator torque housing with a new thrust base design, the MT series is ideally suited for torque-seated valve applications and applications involving elevated process temperatures. MT series bevel gears and thrust base housings are made of ductile iron.The MT series features robust thrust bearings and drive sleeve/stem nut design. These combine to offer the most rugged bevel gear operator available for handling the seating and unseating forces of high-pressure gate and globe valves found in power plants around the world. The MT operator stem nut is shouldered in the drive sleeve to capture thrust forces within the thrust housing without transferring those forces to the torque housing.Available in torque ranges to 8,000 ft-lb and thrust ranges to 325,000 lb., the MT series provides high efficiency and strong design for every application. When motorized by the Limitorque MX, SMB or L120 series electric actuators, the MT series offers flexibility for a wide range of valve opening and closing times."With the MT series, Flowserve once again leads the market with its product offerings for the power industry," says Earnest Carey, manager, product management, Flowserve Flow Control, Limitorque Actuation Systems.
