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 collection of A-range actuators had reached the end of their operational life after long service in a challenging surroundings. BAE Systems needed to retain all the benefits of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators were chosen. เกจวัดแรงดันลม10bar had to be specially adapted by Rotork to overcome problems around confined areas and troublesome entry.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes have been mechanically tailored in order that each actuator and gearbox could be operated by hand with out coming into the confined house. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to remove the need for confined house entry.
Actuators throughout the IQ vary are watertight, offering ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have an advanced twin stacked display with configurable data logger performance, and an absolute position sensor offers reliability and accuracy.
