Brand new Acrogears portable valve actuators

After the huge worldwide success of its previous versions, Acrodyne Pty Ltd is proud to present the BRAND-NEW series of its APB Portable Valve Actuators for easy handling of manual valves, penstocks, and sluice gates equipped with a Li-ion battery engine. Released in 2021, these new portable APB tools represent the ultimate range of devices for operators looking for power and high Nm torques during daily operations and also on ‘particular’ sites, such as below-ground chambers where interventions may be very difficult to handle.

Acrodyne’s portable actuators are devices, conceived, designed, and approved for handling sluice gates, i.e. mobile locking systems along rivers or water flows, to control and regulate their flow amount.

Practical, due to being lightweight. Reliable, because they are built in light alloys coupled to engines and components complying with the latest status of the art. Safe, because of the integral fiction body and of the mobile pin to be inserted on the flange to prevent rotation: Acrodyne actuators represent the easiest, fastest, and most efficient method to operate sluice gates and penstock valves when no electrical power is available, without requesting any physical effort from the operators.

To offer a comprehensive system, Acrodyne offers a set of accessories; these can be either standard or made-to-measure to provide a solution to all problems related to installation on reducers and electrical actuators of any brand. With a battery-operated (APB120N) and two engine-operated models (APS100N and APS140N), these actuators can help all operators active in water treatment and reclamation activities perform quick and safe interventions.
