Please be advised that Flowserve Limitorque is releasing to quote the MX-05 and MX-10 electronic actuators with single phase ACV capability. The actuators are available with the same RPM and torque ratings as the three phase ACV MX-05/MX-10.
- The single-phase MX electronic valve actuator offers greater reliability by leveraging BLDC motor and control technology that was part of the QX non-intrusive, quarter-turn actuator.
- Promotes lower total cost of ownership at the asset level as it allows customers to connect to any and all single-phase ACV busses without changing the motor.
- Delivers durable functionality and precision control in critical applications where process and control valves modulate up to 1800 starts per hour.
Target markets for single phase MXa – Single phase ACV power sources are located around the globe. In fact, the most available primary electrical power source is single phase ACV. For heavy-duty electric actuators (actuators that can provide electro-mechanical or electronic means of producing torques greater than 1500 inch/pounds or 170 Nm), the total market is less than the three phase ACV total market. But it is an essential segment for heavy duty electrics.
The focus industry markets for the MX single phase actuator will be commercial power and water/waste water. There are opportunities in Oil and Gas, mostly upstream and some mid-stream, but due to the O&G market reset the prospects are typically more long term than in previous years.
Single phase ACV range for the MXa:
220/240 V/ 50 Hz, 110/115/120/208/230 V, 60 Hz
The single phase MX utilizes two phase only. It can be used for 208/220/230/240 V, 50/60 Hz, 3 phase AC volts terminations. One terminal will be a “parking” terminal for the third phase.
List pricing is as follows (and is in the Unit Price List, UPL):
MX-05 and MX-10 has an adder for single phase ACV
Lead times for single phase MXa
MX-05/MX-10, both have a 10 week lead time, but cannot ship before May 15, 2016.
Completion of Factory Mutual hazardous environment certifications (explosion-proof certifications) are expected to be within the next 6-8 weeks. These include Factory Mutual, IECEx, ATEX, and FM Canada.
