Flowserve Automax APEX 8000 positioners may be used to control quarter-turn control valves such as eccentric plug, butterfly, segmented ball, standard ball, and plug valves. The Flowserve Automax APEX 8000’s sensitive two-stage relay also makes it ideal for precise damper control applications.
Specify the Flowserve Automax APEX 8000 positioner whenever valve rotation sensitivity is critical.
The Flowserve Automax APEX 8000 positioner may be installed on any quarter-turn valve actuator conforming to the NAMUR standard for accessory mounting bolt pattern and pinion height without a coupler. This reduces deadband and is less expensive.
The Flowserve Automax APEX 8000 housing is constructed from durable die-cast aluminum. The housing is anodized for internal corrosion resistance, then coated with epoxy powder for external resistance to harsh chemicals
