Rotork introduced the third generation of its IQ range of intelligent, non-intrusive, heavy-duty electric valve actuators, which have widespread application throughout power plants.
The new IQ3 actuators have many advanced features that provide enhanced operational, data logging and asset management capabilities. Features include a new secure Bluetooth hand-setting tool for convenient set-up, configuration and commissioning, as well as real-time data access; a large, wide-angle local display that provides user-friendly displays and real time asset management data; and several mechanical enhancements such as separately removable thrust bases across the entire range. This allows actuators to be safely removed from the valve without altering valve position. They are suitable for virtually any type of valve either by direct attachment or in combination with secondary gearboxes.
