Rotork has been selected as supplier of valve actuators for state-owned Iraq’s State Company of Oil Projects’ (SCOP) Karbala Refinery. Rotork orders for the Karbala Refinery include large quantities of IQ3 non-intrusive intelligent electric valve actuators, designed specifically for automated flow control systems in hazardous environments. For critical areas, actuator duties will include the provision of a Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL2) Emergency Shutdown (ESD) function. Recognised around the world, the SIL system identifies the requirements for a Safety Instrumented System (SIS).
These actuators are equipped with the Rotork SIL safety module, which monitors the standard IQ3 control board and provides diagnostic coverage and redundant control in order to perform the desired safety function
