REMOTE VALVE ACTUATORS

 

Remote Valve Actuators

Problem: Current electro-hydraulic and electro-pneumatic actuators suffer from very low reliability and are maintenance intensive. New, all-electric devices with high torques are now available, but unproven in shipboard applications.

Solution: MTTC, in conjunction with COMNAVAIRLANT and AMSEC, obtained and tested actuators from Tri-Tec, Inc., and Limitorque, Inc. on USS GEORGE WASHINGTON and USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT.

Benefits

 

Estimated Navy CostAvoidance:

Minimum annual:      $305 K

Minimum 15 Year:   $4,575 K

 

Fleet Impact: Reduced crew sizes on all new ships require extensive use of high-reliability, remotely operated controls. Use of these actuators will greatly improve controls and system reliability.

 

Status: Complete

 

All testing has been completed. NAVSEA is including applicable models in new shipbuilding specifications.

Applications Include:

  • All Applications (less Nuclear) on all Surface Ships
