New Safety Software Ground-breaking Solution Automates Partial Stroke Testing

Sep 15 2008

Flowserve Corporation (USA) announces a major oil company has standardized its partial stroke safety testing on a Limitorque solution.
Momentary contact emergency shut down (ESD) software, in conjunction with a partial stroke event, has been extensively factory and field tested. Originally a custom application, it is now available as an optional feature on the Flowserve Limitorque MX.
The software, a first for the industry, prevents the partial stroke signal from interfering with an emergency shut down signal to the same emergency block valve during a hazardous event.
"The safety benefits are immeasurable," said Earnest Carey Jr., product manager for Flowserve Flow Control. "With the Limitorque MX upgrade, partial stroke testing is now an automated function that for many years was performed manually, incurring substantial costs."
These features allow the Flowserve Limitorque MX actuator to safely install in very rigorous, demanding and hazardous applications.
