Limitorque® SMB Actuator


The suboptimal performance of an actuator in critical control valve service threatened to result in 35 weeks of lost opportunity costs due to waiting for a replacement.

SOLUTION – Actuator Refurbishment

Refurbish the misfunctioning actuator with our advanced technology and expertise at our Limitorque Blue Ribbon-certified facility.


  • Expert service in Limitorque Actuator refurbishment
  • Manufacturer-certified repair
  • Immediate and effective technical response
  • Large in-stock selection of crucial repair parts
  • Significantly reduced lead time


When an actuator in critical control valve service at a leading downstream energy plant began to perform below expectations, the obvious option was to replace it. However, a new actuator couldn’t arrive onsite for 35 weeks. Consequently, roughly nine months of substandard operations would cost hundreds of thousands—if not millions—in lost opportunity costs.

To minimize downtime, we recommended our actuator repair services as the best path forward. Firstly, the misfunctioning actuator was shipped from their facility to our Limitorque repair facility in Chicago, IL. Then, our team of technical experts disassembled the product, cleaned the parts, and furnished it with the necessary new components. As a result, we restored the actuator to peak operation.

Because our facility stocks a wide range of repair parts for various types of actuators and our technicians are certified by the manufacturer, we were able to refurbish the product and get it shipped out within 36 hours of receipt.

Our commitment to maintaining close partnerships with vendors like Limitorque and our team’s willingness to go the extra mile for our customers on the weekend helped us realize significant cost savings. And, most importantly, get the plant back to running at full speed.
