Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to improve a series 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).
A collection of A-range actuators had reached the tip of their operational life after long service in a challenging surroundings. BAE Systems needed to retain all the advantages of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators have been chosen. These needed to be specifically adapted by Rotork to beat problems around confined spaces and troublesome access.
nuova fima pressure gauge ราคา and IS gearboxes were mechanically tailored so that each actuator and gearbox could be manually operated without coming into the confined house. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to get rid of the need for confined house entry.
Actuators inside 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 knowledge logger functionality, and an absolute place sensor offers reliability and accuracy.
