New Microprocessor-Based Actuator, Specifically Designed for PulsaPro Series, Brings Remote Control to Chemical Metering Applications

The fault-tolerant and self-recovering XAE is designed for reliability and minimal maintenance

The XAE Actuator is built on a customizable platform with expansion capabilities to facilitate future enhancement as customer, and industry needs change.

Pulsafeeder, a global leader in fluid handling technology since 1942, today announced the new XAE Actuator, which brings a higher level of precision and remote control to the PulsaPro family of diaphragm pumps. PulsaPro metering pumps are used to dose specific volume of chemicals for numerous applications in refineries, chemical & petrochemical plants, and throughout the upstream oil & gas industry. Pulsafeeder is showcasing the new XAE Actuator at OTC in Houston this week, in booth #9047.

The API compliant XAE Actuator is an electromechanical servo controller that provides remote control of PulsaPro hydraulic diaphragm pumps, to alter flow rates as required by the process. Alarm relays alert users to unintended changes in flow rates, including stop conditions. The fault-tolerant and self-recovering XAE is designed for reliability and minimal maintenance, with metal gearing and an explosion-proof enclosure. Simple calibration capabilities and an intuitive user interface facilitate ease-of-use. The XAE is purpose-built for PulsaPro pumps, and it is designed to meet the needs of international industrial markets.

“In the past, we have provided third-party valve actuators, but after soliciting customer and distributor feedback, we’ve designed and built a true metering pump actuator that provides a better fit, and tighter controls for the PulsaPro pump series,” said Erik Van Bork, Manager of Controls Engineering for Pulsafeeder. “The XAE is manufactured in the same plant as the PulsaPro pumps. This shortens delivery times, and we provide a common warranty for both products that further simplifies things for our customers.”

The XAE Actuator is built on a customizable platform. The XAE’s digital microprocessor-based controls are built for seamless control panel integration, and numerous expansion port capabilities provide hooks to facilitate future enhancement as customer, and industry needs change.
