Klasi Actuator Test Stand
Kalsi MOV Actuator Test Stand
The Kalsi Engineering MOV Actuator Test Stand improves MOV Margins by accurately quantifying actuator torque output off-line, eliminating conservatism in torque output calculations. The test stand quantifies the torque output (with/out stem thrust), Gear efficiency, true capability under degraded voltage, Temperature effects, Torque switch repeatability, Stall capability. It benefits includes: provides 10%-40% additional capability over published/ calculated actuator output, guarantees fitness for service by detecting actuator degradation or disassembly, guarantees functional replacement actuators for outages, enhances productivity and reduces dose by minimizing time at the valve.
