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 sequence of A-range actuators had reached the tip of their operational life after lengthy service in a challenging setting. BAE Systems needed to retain all the benefits of electrical actuators, so IQ3 actuators were chosen. These needed to be specifically tailored by Rotork to overcome problems around confined areas and tough access.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes were mechanically tailored in order that each actuator and gearbox might be manually operated with out getting into the confined house. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to get rid of the necessity for confined house access.
Actuators inside the IQ range are watertight, offering ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. เพชเชอร์เกจ have an advanced twin stacked display with configurable information logger performance, and an absolute place sensor supplies reliability and accuracy.
