Join this webinar to see an introduction to Rotork's range of valve actuation solutions for all aspects of the oil and gas industry. Attendees will learn how to leverage different actuator types and pressure monitoring solutions to fit any oil and gas application.

Rotork offers a wide range of solutions for the midstream sector, including different types of fluid power actuators complete with customized control systems suitable for air- or high-pressure gas supply or self-contained electro-hydraulic actuators. In remote locations lacking conventional power supplies, renewable energy sources such as solar power can also be applied.

Rotork's product range includes reliable heavy-duty actuators for both routine and safety shutdown duties suitable for installation in challenging environments ranging from saline coastal locations to arid desert areas with extreme temperature fluctuations.

The rugged and compact design of the GP and CP scotch yoke actuators have been successfully applied in LNG terminals to operate ball and butterfly cryogenic valves in storage and regasification plants.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn how gas-over-oil and high-pressure gas actuators use the pressure of gas flowing through the valve as the fluid motive power for the actuator itself
  • Gain insight into how intelligent pipeline pressure monitor solutions can provide early detection of pipeline breaks and allow the automatic closure of the actuator for an easy maintenance procedure
  • Understand how electro-hydraulic actuators can be used where the pipeline gas cannot be employed
  • Learn that because actuators help control almost everything in a petro-chemical plant, they are vital to every facility's safe operation and maintenance
