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 operate penstocks controlling motion of ships between the sea and transitional locks and dry docks at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth).
เครื่องมือตรวจวัดความดันเลือดเรียกว่า of A-range actuators had reached the top of their operational life after lengthy service in a challenging surroundings. BAE Systems needed to retain all the advantages of electrical actuators, so IQ3 actuators were chosen. These needed to be specifically adapted by Rotork to overcome issues around confined areas and difficult access.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes have been mechanically tailored so that both actuator and gearbox might be operated by hand with out getting into the confined space. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and thru drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to remove the necessity for confined area access.
Actuators throughout the IQ vary are watertight, offering ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have a sophisticated twin stacked show with configurable information logger functionality, and an absolute position sensor offers reliability and accuracy.
