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 operate 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 tip of their operational life after lengthy service in a challenging environment. จำหน่ายเกจวัดแรงดัน needed to retain all the benefits of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators were chosen. These had to be specially tailored by Rotork to beat issues round confined spaces and tough access.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes have been mechanically adapted in order that both actuator and gearbox might be operated by hand with out coming into the confined house. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and thru drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to remove the necessity for confined area access.
Actuators within the IQ vary are watertight, providing ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have an advanced dual stacked display with configurable knowledge logger functionality, and an absolute place sensor supplies reliability and accuracy.
