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 movement 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 end of their operational life after lengthy service in a challenging setting. BAE Systems wished to retain all the advantages of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators were chosen. pressure gauge หน้าปัด 2 นิ้ว had to be specially adapted by Rotork to overcome issues round confined areas and troublesome entry.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes have been mechanically adapted in order that both actuator and gearbox might be manually operated without coming into the confined area. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and thru drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to eliminate the necessity for confined house entry.
Actuators within the IQ range are watertight, offering ingress safety to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have a complicated dual stacked show with configurable data logger performance, and an absolute position sensor provides reliability and accuracy.
