VALVCON® LCU-Series Economical Unidirectional Electric Actuator
The Valvcon LCU-Series actuator is designed to be one of the most cost effective units available; reliable and inherently low-maintenance, it provides long-term efficiencies beyond its initial low price. LCU-Series actuators are designed for applications that require single direction actuation.

Metso’s Valvcon LCU-Series electric actuator is a proven performer for on/off (open/close) valve and damper control. Combining low cost with an extremely high cycle life, LCU-Series actuators are a truly costeffective, reliable solution to your simple valve actuation needs. Easy to install, with no ongoing maintenance required, LCU-Series actuators are ideally suited for OEM applications. They are designed to supply years of trouble-free actuation.

Efficient, Consistent Performance

LCU actuators are designed for valve applications that require single direction actuation – usually small ball valves two inches and under. A shaded-pole motor is used in 24, 115 or 230 volt AC applications.

The design of the LCU actuator makes it one of the most cost-effective units on the market today. Three units produce breakaway torque from 150 to 600 inlbs. And because Metso’s Valvcon electric actuators are reliable and inherently low maintenance units (compared with pneumatic alternatives), you’ll realize longterm efficiencies beyond the initial low price.
