Flowserve launches FlowSync Bluetooth actuator app

Flowserve Corp has released the FlowSync Bluetooth actuator app providing plant operators with a smarter way to commission, monitor, control and update actuators.

“The FlowSync app offers easy and straightforward configuration and diagnostic options that can be accessed through a touch-screen device,” said Mark Stone, Flowserve global product leader, electric actuators. “It enables operators to digitize their equipment and processes, and helps them save time and money on the commissioning and maintenance of actuation equipment.”

Using the Flowserve FlowSync app, plant operators and technicians can connect easily and securely from safe and comfortable distances to configure or change actuator settings remotely. They also can set up, monitor and control actuators using familiar touch-screen devices and commands.

The app’s dashboard helps users identify conditions or issues by displaying actuator status, valve/actuator position, torque and speed, along with temperature measurements. Support from Flowserve specialists is also available through the app.

The FlowSync app is available for download in the Apple and Google Play app stores. It is compatible with Limitorque MX Series B (MXb) non-intrusive, multi-turn, smart electric actuators in the oil and gas, chemical, commercial power, petrochemical, water and general industries.

Compatibility with other Limitorque electric actuators is expected as part of future development initiatives.
