Thanks to REXA’s Electraulic™ Actuators, this plant’s concerns are a thing of the past! Our actuators require no oil filters or oil-based maintenance – making them highly reliable. Regular maintenance intervals for our actuators on steam turbine systems are not typically required until after 7-10 years of service, ensuring long-lasting repeatability. High performance allows for control at +/- 1 RPM, allowing fast synchronization and exceptional load control.
Once installed, our customer noticed an immediate improvement on the turbine’s speed control and RPM swing. With our self-contained actuators, the customer eliminated constant repair and replacement of the old actuation system. They also eliminated the need for an external oil supply, which required scheduled filtration maintenance and many other peripherals within the governor control valve actuator loop such as the LVDT feedback, positioning modules, etc.
“The installation process was smooth and trouble-free as we didn’t need to revise our standards or training. Having witnessed the REXA actuator in action for a few months now, I believe we would have potentially averted an unplanned process interruption or two had we replaced the old system when we first had the opportunity. Modernizing a 20+ year-old steam turbine is a lot easier with just one cohesive package, like REXA’s. The hysteresis with prior loose linkages is completely gone.”
