The user was seeking long-term reliability. Valves and actuators are cycled frequently during grape harvest and are then dormant for several months each year.
Q Series actuators are designed for high-speed and high cycle service while enabling long periods of dormancy without deterioration. The customer purchased over 700 actuators for this high cycle application.
Since installing QTRCO Actuators, maintenance issues for actuators have become a thing of the past. No failures in over 15 years of service! The maintenance supervisor says that “QTRCO actuators are bulletproof”.
