Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to upgrade a series of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which operate penstocks controlling movement 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 surroundings. BAE Systems wished to retain all the advantages of electrical actuators, so IQ3 actuators were chosen. เกจวัดแรงดันลมราคา had to be specially adapted by Rotork to overcome problems round confined spaces and difficult entry.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes had been mechanically adapted so that both actuator and gearbox could possibly be operated by hand without getting into the confined area. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to get rid of the need for confined house access.
Actuators within the IQ range are watertight, offering ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have an advanced dual stacked show with configurable information logger functionality, and an absolute place sensor supplies reliability and accuracy.
