Rotork assists BAE Systems in naval base actuator upgrades

Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to upgrade a collection of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which function penstocks controlling movement of ships between the sea and transitional locks and dry docks at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth).
ตัววัดแรงดัน of A-range actuators had reached the tip of their operational life after long service in a difficult surroundings. BAE Systems needed to retain all the benefits of electrical actuators, so IQ3 actuators have been chosen. These had to be specifically tailored by Rotork to beat issues round confined areas and troublesome entry.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes have been mechanically tailored in order that each actuator and gearbox could possibly be operated by hand without coming into the confined area. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to remove the need for confined space entry.
Actuators within the IQ range are watertight, providing ingress safety to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have an advanced dual stacked show with configurable information logger functionality, and an absolute place sensor supplies reliability and accuracy.
