QTRCO: Forms Nuclear Subsidiary

qtrcoQTRCO, Inc. of Tomball, TX, a VMA member company, has announced the establishment of a wholly owned subsidiary named QTRCO NUCLEAR, Inc. to facilitate entry into the nuclear power plant market with its quarter-turn FLAT YOKE actuator.

The new subsidiary will seek full NQA-1 status as well as applicable equipment qualifications to comply with nuclear power plant requirements.

Suitable for any quarter-turn valve, FLAT YOKE actuators feature a seismically friendly lighter and weight balanced design, and unlike typical scotch yoke type actuators, FLAT YOKE actuators apply no side loading onto the actuator shaft or the piston rod, and wear parts such as piston rod bushings and seals have been eliminated, leaving on-site replaceable, piston o-rings as the only dynamic seals.

QTRCO Nuclear, Inc. welcomes inquiries from valve companies wishing to evaluate the reduced mounting stresses of lighter, weight-balanced actuators that can be repaired without removal from the valve, thus preserving the original alignment of the valve components.

QTRCO, located on a six-acre site in Tomball, TX designs and manufactures long-life, quarter- turn valve actuators for severe service applications.

Contact Shawn Hughes, president or Ed Holtgraver, CEO, for additional information at 281-516-0277 or 1-888-ACTU 8 IT.
