Eltorque, Norwegian supplier of electric valve control, has launched a new super-compact valve actuator, the most sophisticated in their portfolio.
“The market has requested a compact and cost-effective actuator for small valves and in tight spaces. With the QT50, Eltorque has responded to that request by developing the smallest actuator in its class, at 2/3 of the weight and 1/3 the volume of competing products,” says Eltorque CEO Arnstein Kjesbu.
The most compact actuator Eltorque has ever offered, the QT50 still delivers the same heralded performance as all other Eltorque products: maintenance free, IP68 protection rating, market leading functionality and feedback, time saving installation and commissioning, and the option of hybrid cable connectivity.
Designed for butterfly and ball valves primarily in the DN25–DN80 range, the QT50 actuator features CANbus, digital or analog control interfaces, improved visuals, and a unique planetary gear, all made to fit in the smallest possible packaging.
“We have launched the QT50 to strengthen our competitiveness in the range of small valves. With compact outer dimensions, low weight and high durability, we believe both maritime and onshore customers will benefit greatly from the QT50,” says Kjesbu.
Eltorque has become a frontrunner among maritime valve control suppliers due largely to their unique CANbus-based connection interface. Compared to conventional solutions, it allows for improved functionality and real-time feedback, as well as reduced installation and commissioning time. In addition, Eltorque valve control is completely maintenance free.
