Power Generation

Moog Integrations and Exchanges:

CFI is an authorized integrator for Moog Industrial.  We integrate Moog actuators to Fisher process valves for the Power Generation Industry.  We can facilitate your Moog turbine actuator needs through our extensive exchange program or by facilitating a factory repair.  Our actuator exchange program allows our customers to minimize their downtime while receiving factory rebuilt turbine actuators and process valves.  The exchange actuators have the latest upgrades and a factory warranty, at a substantial savings over purchasing a new actuator.  A factory repair gives you peace of mind knowing that your repair has original factory parts, factory warranty, and the item is repaired to original factory specifications.

Moog Authorized Distributor:

CFI is the largest Moog Industrial Distributor in North America, and we will facilitate your Moog factory repair ensuring:

  • Original Factory Parts
  • Factory Warranty
  • Repaired to original factory specifications
  • Upgraded to current parts and specifications
  • Complete factory failure analysis and evaluations are available

Actuator Repairs for Steam and Gas Turbines:

Additionally, CFI offers in house repairs for steam turbine actuators, Young & ranklinF actuators, and Woodward actuators. Not only do we maintain a broad inventory of rod and barrel stock, including stainless steel rod stock, but all replacement components meet or exceed OEM standards. Our rigorous testing is based on the real world operating conditions of the item being repaired. Throughout the repair process, we maintain proper ISO codes in our test fluids to keep repaired parts free of damaging contaminants. We are devoted to delivering repaired items in a timely manner, and we will work with you on your shut down requirements and offer rush repairs when necessary.

Fluid Contamination Solutions:

Fluid contamination accounts for 75% of all hydraulic failures. In order to keep hydraulic devices functioning properly, CFI applies our knowledge of filtration and fluid conditioning to service our Power Generation customers. We upgrade existing hydraulic and lube filter elements to the latest generation Dualglass for cleaner fluid and improved performance. In addition, our varnish removal solutions will eliminate soluble contamination and reduce fluid maintenance requirements.

Pulp and Paper

Location and Experience:

Our experience in hydraulic/pneumatic repairs and fluid conditioning services combined with our proximity to East Texas forests gives CFI an advantage in servicing issues in the wood pulp and paper manufacturing industries. Controlled Fluids specializes in automated and manual systems, safety systems, and machine upgrades for paper and wood pulp industry applications.

Maintenance and Repair Services:

CFI is committed to offering the highest quality maintenance and repair service to our customers. Our experienced technicians and machinists offer years of experience, to ensure repairs and maintenance are completed and tested correctly and promptly. Repairs and component integrations are tested based on real world operating conditions throughout the process. In addition, our field service capabilities include; repairs, installation of complete systems and hydraulic tubing, hydraulic machine upgrades, HPUs, engineering studies, and preventative maintenance.

Fluid Conditioning and Preventative Maintenance:

In the pulp and paper industry, preventing problems is preferable to fixing them after costly issues arise. Over time, paper dust and other fibrous particulates can penetrate the seals on hydraulic systems allowing dust and grime to enter hydraulic fluids, resulting in fluid contamination. Hydraulic fluid contamination accounts for 75% of all hydraulic failures, leading to reduced efficiency, lost production, and costly malfunctions. Our expertise in fluid conditioning will keep fluid contamination under control with innovative filtration products, support and solutions. Our hydraulic experts will identify the best filtration solution for your unique needs.
