Rotork assists BAE Systems in naval base actuator upgrades

เพรสเชอร์เกจ has been working with BAE Systems to improve a sequence of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which function 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 tip of their operational life after lengthy service in a challenging environment. BAE Systems wanted to retain all the advantages of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators had been chosen. These needed to be specially tailored by Rotork to beat issues round confined areas and difficult access.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes had been mechanically tailored so that each actuator and gearbox could possibly be operated by hand with out coming into the confined space. Rotork designed particular hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to eliminate 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 a complicated twin stacked show with configurable knowledge logger functionality, and an absolute place sensor supplies reliability and accuracy.
