Rotork assists BAE Systems in naval base actuator upgrades

Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to improve a collection of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which operate penstocks controlling motion of ships between the sea and transitional locks and dry docks at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth).
A series of A-range actuators had reached the top of their operational life after lengthy service in a difficult environment. BAE Systems wanted to retain all the benefits of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators have been chosen. เกจวัดแรงดันน้ําไทวัสดุ had to be specifically tailored by Rotork to overcome problems round confined spaces and difficult access.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes had been mechanically adapted in order that both actuator and gearbox could probably be operated by hand with out entering the confined area. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to remove the necessity for confined house access.
Actuators throughout the IQ range are watertight, offering ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have a sophisticated dual stacked display with configurable information logger functionality, and an absolute position sensor offers reliability and accuracy.
