Emerson Process Management has released the new Bettis™ EHO actuator to the market, providing users with a complete, proven solution for critical situations where fail-safe response in remote areas must be instantaneous and dependable.
The robust EHO actuator couples proven technologies from Emerson’s Valve Automation offering of actuation and controls to handle critical shutdown situations where dependability is a must.
The EHO actuator is ideal for a diverse range of applications, from topsides valve automation on offshore platforms to remote pipelines where operational upsets can cause safety and environmental hazards, as well as costly production losses. To help operators counteract these challenges, the EHO provides a compact design with actuator and control components from Emerson that have been field proven for decades in critical service and features that combine more than 200 years of experience in valve actuation, electric motor, and hydraulic control technology.
The EHO is available in either spring-return or double-acting configurations. Torque outputs can handle valve sizes from 150mm to 1500mm (6” to 60”).
A new generation radio-frequency Power Processing Unit (PPU) for the VASIMR® engine, built by Canada-based Aethera Technologies Ltd., has completed a series of full power acceptance tests at Ad Astra Rocket Company’s Texas facility near Houston.
