Rotork supplies electric and fluid power actuators to oil production site in Middle East

psoihiwaahm4vfrkaaktRotork, a mission-critical oil and gas flow control and instrumentation solution provider, has delivered its electric and fluid power actuators to an oil production site in the Middle East

The actuators will be installed on a remote header application at one of the world’s largest exporter of crude oil and condensates. This is one of several new build sites in the country. The actuators will be used to control the flow of crude oil from remote header manifolds to nearby refineries for further processing.

The IQ3 multi-turn actuator from Rotork allows unparalleled data analysis of the condition and operational status of a valve, delivered through an intuitive user interface and advanced dual-stack display. In this application, the IQ3s have been installed with IW quarter-turn worm gearboxes which enables them to reach a torque output range of up to 826,888 Nm (609,881 lbf.ft). The gearboxes include low lead angle gearing designed to be inherently self-locking.

The Rotork GP pneumatic quarter-turn actuator is designed to provide a rotary movement for either on/off or modulating duty. Featuring corrosion resistant cylinders, the GP can deliver an output torque of up to 600,000 Nm (442,500 lbf.ft).

The SI range of intelligent self-contained electro-hydraulic actuators offers a solution for electric fail-safe and both two position and positioning control. Available in spring-return or double-acting configuration, the SI can offer a linear torque output range of 1.5 to 3,850 kN and part-turn torque output range of 65 to 600,000 Nm.

The company said that five Rotork Master Stations were ordered by the customer too. Each can control up to 240 actuators on a single highway option and comes with a large touch screen interface that allows operators and engineers to see exactly what's going on at the site.

The Rotork Master Station is fully hot standby with all interfaces replicated i.e. CPU, power supply, display, interfaces to the network and interfaces to control.
