Electric Actuator PM Survey

Electric Actuator PM Survey

Electric Actuators are often subjected to extreme service conditions and get little attention or maintenance until problems arise. We recommend routine maintenance checks every twelve months to ensure proper, reliable operation. A PM Survey is the best way to gauge reliability, schedule future repairs, and budget for outages and turnarounds.

Actuator PM Survey & Inspection

• Record actuator data and provide pictorial report documentation in Midwest Valve Services customer-accessible portal ARMR™.
• Record name plate data.
• Visually inspect for damage or stress fractures.
• Inspect for loose bolting.
• Inspect for grease leaks.
• Manually stroke the actuator.
• Remove small grease sample to be inspected and analyzed.
• Open limit switches.
• Inspect for loose or brittle wires.
• Electrically operate the actuator to check for noisy bearings or potential binding during operation.
• Check current draw to verify it is within nameplate tolerances.
• Create summary Survey Report with prioritization of recommended repairs.
