Multiple orders for Rotork actuators

Rotork, a market leading actuator manufacturer and flow control company, with multiple locations globally and in the US, recently announced that its fluid power valve actuators have been ordered for multiple applications at a new grassroots refinery under construction in the Middle East.

With a capacity of up to 400,000 barrels a day, the refinery will process crude oils to manufacture petrol, ultra-low-sulphur diesel and fuel oil for export and to satisfy local demand. One order involves the supply of 70 LP range linear pneumatic actuators for the operation of large gate valves. The order for these actuators includes the assembly and factory testing of local control panels with digital valve positioners.

In other areas of the site, over 200 Rotork GP and CP range pneumatic actuators are being supplied for the operation of butterfly valves in desalination and wastewater treatment plants. These scotch yoke actuators are designed to provide part-turn movement for isolating or modulating duties.
