Managing the risk of aging assets

31 January 2022

Lifetime Management, the service and maintenance programme from Rotork, has been enhanced with the launch of the IQ3 SET actuator, which offering backwards compatibility to the 1960s.

Lifetime Management helps users manage the risk associated with aging assets. It includes tiered maintenance options, upgrade services, planned shutdown support and life cycle services. The backwards compatibility offered by the IQ3 SET is appropriate for legacy actuators on sites that have non-integral starters (known as SyncroSET). 

The IQ3 SET feature facilitates obsolescence management and future-proofs plants without affecting the plant infrastructure. It is compatible with existing site cabling and control systems, so there is no need for new cabling and associated costs. There is minimal downtime during upgrades.

Aging plant infrastructure and equipment plays an important role in the consideration of risk management, proving increasingly difficult to maintain as parts become obsolete, or difficult and expensive to source. To ensure continued operation and effective performance, site operators may need to consider updating technology to future-proof their sites. Customers can manage obsolescence concerns by replacing legacy actuators with the latest intelligent actuator platform by installing IQ3 SET. Proactive engagement in future-proofing your site, understanding the importance of obsolescence management and managing the life-cycle stage of assets will result in budget predictability, improved performance and reduced downtime. The IQ3 SET option works with and supports the features of older versions, with seamless integration into existing plant architecture and no need to change existing cables or control systems.
