Rotork: RHQ Hydraulic Actuators

Rotork RHQ extreme duty rack and pinion hydraulic actuators are designed for some of the most challenging valve actuation applications on earth. They are an excellent choice for the demanding requirements and adverse conditions found in applications for mining and offshore. The balanced design has a very compact footprint for a given output. Integral lifting lugs are designed to support the weight of both the actuator and the valve.

Standard models feature output torque Up to 700,000 Nm (6,200,000lbf-in) and higher output up to 5,650,000 Nm (50,000,000 lbf-in) is available upon request.

Beck New High Temperature Valve Actuator

The new compact Group 75 rotary actuator incorporates a synchronous, permanent-magnet motor and an efficient spur gear drive train insuring years of reliable service, extremely low power requirements, and excellent positioning performance. Additionally, the motor will never overheat and cannot burn-out.

The new design is not only smaller and lighter, but it also incorporates technologies that make an optional high temperature (250˚F / 120˚C) version possible, exceeding Beck’s standard 185˚F / 85˚C rating. These features make it easy to install the Group 75 in space-restricted and difficult service environments, and it is particularly well-suited for all types of rotary valve applications.
