Electric actuators installed at Chinese oil refinery

10 December 2018

More than 2,500 Rotork IQ3 electric actuators have been installed at a Chinese oil refinery and petrochemical complex.

Zhejiang Petroleum & Chemical Company Ltd, which refines oil and manufactures chemical products, ordered the actuators for the refinery which is in construction on the island of Zhoushan, near Shanghai.
 
The actuators operate gate valves, ball valves and butterfly valves to control the flow of crude oil and product oil at the plant.
 
 Rotork’s intelligent IQ3 electric multi-turn electric actuator gives the user access to data to help maximise plant efficiency. Available in 1-phase, 3-phase and direct current variants, the IQ3 relays real-time information on an advanced dual stacked display which can be accessed even in the event of a power outage. The IQ3 provides a torque range from 10 to 3,000 Nm with a direct drive and up to 44,000 Nm when combined with an IS or IB gearbox.
 
When complete the entire project will feature two refineries capable of producing 400,000 barrels a day and two ethylene plants capable of producing up to 1.4 million tonnes a year.
