Flowserve Corporation, a leading provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, today announced the release of the Flowserve FlowSync Bluetooth Actuator App. The cross-platform mobile application provides plant operators with a smarter way to commission, monitor, control and update actuators in a safe and convenient manner.

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

“With equal parts durability and sophistication, Flowserve Limitorque electric actuators have supported the process needs of our customers for decades by delivering reliable valve control in a variety of applications. In addition to providing our customers with unprecedented value through our technical solutions, we are now focusing on elevating the actuator user experience with the Flowserve FlowSync app,” he added.

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 following industries: oil and gas; chemical; commercial power; general industries; petrochemical; and water.

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

Plant operators and technicians benefit by using the Flowserve FlowSync app because they 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. In addition, fast and reliable expert support from Flowserve support specialists is available through the app.
