Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to improve a series of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which function penstocks controlling motion of ships between the ocean and transitional locks and dry docks at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth).
A sequence of A-range actuators had reached the top of their operational life after lengthy service in a difficult surroundings. weksler pressure gauge ราคา wished to retain all the benefits of electrical actuators, so IQ3 actuators were chosen. These had to be specially tailored by Rotork to beat issues around confined areas and tough entry.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes were mechanically adapted so that each actuator and gearbox could be operated by hand without coming into the confined space. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to eliminate the need for confined space entry.
Actuators throughout the IQ range are watertight, providing ingress safety to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have an advanced twin stacked show with configurable knowledge logger functionality, and an absolute position sensor offers reliability and accuracy.
