Rotork actuators specified for tank farm expansion

11 October 2017

Rotork, a global actuator manufacturer and flow control company with multiple US locations, has announced that the latest generation of Rotork Skilmatic SI3 electro-hydraulic actuators have been supplied to one of India’s leading state owned oil companies to operate 42" and 48" triple offset butterfly valves on vital safety-related tank farm duties.

The operator was constructing additional storage tank capacity and had to comply with the safety regulations laid down by the MB Lal Committee, requiring the installation of failsafe actuators for critical tank farm applications. 

Rotork worked very closely with the consultant and the end user, providing Skilmatic tank farm application details and reference lists, organizing technical presentations and live product demos. This resulted in the decision to adopt the electro-hydraulic solution in the specification for the project.
