Rotork Global Actuation Solutions for the Hydrocarbons Industry
Rotork is a leading manufacturer of electric, hydraulic and pneumatic valve actuators. Rotork also manufactures the control systems, valve gearboxes and valve accessories associated with its actuators, and is supported by a worldwide service network.
Valve actuators for the hydrocarbons industry
Rotork products are used on applications throughout virtually all upstream and downstream activities, ranging from offshore production facilities through refining and processing, to transportation of finished products via pipelines or vessels.
We have over 50 years’ experience in serving the hydrocarbons industry. We have a full range of actuators, all designed to meet the stringent requirements of the oil and gas industry and to provide the exacting levels of durability and reliability required.
At Rotork, we provide actuators for new build projects as well as complete support programmes, including retrofit and maintenance. Rotork actuators are accurate, robust and efficient. They provide precise control, lower costs and a safe environment.
Our range of actuators is designed to fulfil all the requirements of the oil and gas industry.
The IQPro intelligent electric actuator range features legendary innovations, including Rotork’s unique double-sealed enclosure, ‘non-intrusive’ infra-red commissioning, data-logging and predictive maintenance capabilities. IQPro functionality and reliability is available for valves of virtually every size and description, including multi-turn (rotary), quarter-turn, isolating and modulating, with watertight and hazardous area approvals to all internationally recognised standards.
The CVA and GPSA actuator ranges apply state-of-the-art electrical and mechanical technologies to the ‘smart’ operation of linear and rotary control valves demanding continuous, repeatable modulation, with a programmable fail to position option. The range demonstrates unrivalled control valve automation, combined with advanced, non-intrusive calibration and valve diagnostic technologies.
Electric actuator ranges also include the AWT range for simplified control duties, and ROM and Q direct-drive actuators for small quarter-turn valves.
Control and serial communication options, encompassing Rotork’s proprietary Pakscan and open systems including Profibus, Foundation Fieldbus, Modbus and DeviceNet, complete an unbroken chain of Rotork reliability from the valve to the control room and, via Ethernet, to anywhere on the planet.
Pneumatic, hydraulic, gas-over oil and electro-hydraulic actuators
Rotork Fluid Systems’ product offering encompasses P, GP, CP, RC200 / RCI200 and R ranges of scotch-yoke and rack-and-pinion pneumatic actuators, H, GH and RH hydraulic actuators, the GO range of gas-over-oil actuators, the HPG range of high-pressure direct gas actuators and the Skilmatic range of electro-hydraulic actuators.
In addition to quarter-turn designs, most ranges are also available for linear valve applications. Many actuators are built for critical high-speed failsafe or emergency shutdown (ESD) duties in harsh locations, including subsea actuators for valves at depths measured in hundreds of metres.
The Rotork group of companies comprises three actuation divisions. In addition, Rotork Site Services provides worldwide planned and emergency actuation services including: actuator overhauling, health checks, retrofit, preventative maintenance and extended scope projects.
