Rotork assists BAE Systems in naval base actuator upgrades

Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to improve a series of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which operate penstocks controlling motion of ships between the ocean and transitional locks and dry docks at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth).
เกจวัดแรงดัน of A-range actuators had reached the tip of their operational life after lengthy service in a difficult environment. BAE Systems wished to retain all the benefits of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators have been chosen. These had to be specifically adapted by Rotork to beat issues round confined spaces and tough entry.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes had been mechanically adapted so that both actuator and gearbox could be manually operated without getting into the confined house. ไดอะแฟรม designed special hand auto levers and thru drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to remove the necessity for confined house entry.
Actuators within the IQ vary 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 position sensor offers reliability and accuracy.
