The Bettis M2CP Electric Actuator with separate control module is a proven solution for high temperature/high vibration process applications, including those in which torque and position feedback are needed. The separate control module allows most of the electronics to be mounted in a separate enclosure, away from heat and vibration which allows for operators to stay out of the 'line of fire', reducing the risk to their health and safety. The actuators can also be supplied with fire blankets and intumescent coatings for additional protection.
An Emerson Impact Partner Customer was experiencing reliability issues with traditional electric actuators on their coker drain valves. This service is characterized by high vibration, extremely high temperature, and frequent seismic shock. The existing electric actuators were failing every 2 months. The team replaced the existing actuator with a high-vibration Bettis M2CP Electric Actuator with separate control module, delivering $1.2 million in annual savings.
