Rotork assists BAE Systems in naval base actuator upgrades

Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to upgrade a sequence of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which function penstocks controlling motion of ships between the sea and transitional locks and dry docks at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth).
A series of A-range actuators had reached the tip of their operational life after long service in a challenging environment. BAE Systems wanted to retain all the advantages of electrical actuators, so IQ3 actuators had been chosen. These needed to be specially adapted by Rotork to beat issues round confined areas and tough entry.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes had been mechanically adapted in order that both actuator and gearbox might be manually operated with out entering the confined area. เกจวัดแรงดันถังแก๊ส designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to remove the need for confined space access.
Actuators inside the IQ range are watertight, providing ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have a complicated dual stacked show with configurable information logger functionality, and an absolute place sensor supplies reliability and accuracy.
