Limitorque MT series bevel gear operators combine a bevel gear operator torque housing with a new thrust base design for torque-seated valve applications as well as applications involving elevated process temperatures. Both the bevel gear and the thrust base housings are made of ductile iron.
The robust thrust bearings and drive sleeve/stem nut design combine to offer a highly rugged range of bevel gear operators for handling the seating and unseating forces of high pressure gate valves and globe valves used in power plants worldwide. The 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.
Key features of Limitorque MT series bevel gear operators:
- Available in torque ranges to 3,000 ft-lb and thrust ranges to 100,000 lb
- Provides high efficiency and strong design for every application
- Offers flexibility for a wide range of valve opening and closing times when motorised by Limitorque MX, SMB, or L120 series electric actuators
- Backed by excellent sales and service support
