Technical Repair Guide for Rotork


Valve Actuators "NA" Range Models
This guide provides comprehensive technical information on Rotork
valve actuator operation, maintenance, testing, and troubleshooting.
Its design provides the user with a uniform methodology to reduce
human errors and increase actuator reliability.

BACKGROUND A number of valves in nuclear power plants are equipped with


electric motor actuators. Some of these valves are installed in systems critical
to plant safety. Reliable operation of these motor-operated valves plays a major
role in ensuring that these systems can meet their safety function. Proper
maintenance, repair, and refurbishment of these actuators directly affects power
plant operation. NMAC has published a number of documents providing mainte-
INTEREST CATEGORIES nance and repair guidelines for Limitorque valve actuators. These documents
have proven to be extremely popular with utility personnel. NMAC member
utilities using Rotork actuators requested that similar guidelines for Rotork
Maintenance practices actuators be developed.
Nuclear plant operations
and maintenance OBJECTIVE To elaborate on the manufacturer's technical instructions and
Engineering and technical provide uniform guidance for the operation, testing, maintenance, and trouble-
support shooting of Rotork valve actuators.
KEYWORDS
APPROACH NMAC surveyed all member utilities to identify the type and model
of valve actuators to be included in this guide. A detailed outline of the guide was
Maintenance developed based on the results. A project team with expertise in operating and
Valves maintaining Rotork actuators developed an initial draft of this guide using informa-
Valve actuators tion from the manufacturer's operating, maintenance, testing, and troubleshooting
Maintainability procedures. Manufacturer information updates, actual utility practices, and
Motor-operated valves regulatory information were also included in the guide.
The draft was reviewed by a number of utilities experienced with Rotork actua-
tors in the United States and overseas and by engineering and technical per-
sonnel of Rotork, Inc. The final publication includes substantial additions and
changes suggested by reviewers.

RESULTS This guide covers Rotork actuator models A, AZ, NA1, NA2, NA4,
NA5, NAX, NAT, and NAZT in sizes 7 through 90. It contains consistent and
accurate repair, routine maintenance, adjustment, testing, and troubleshooting
methodologies for engineering, operations, and maintenance personnel. Basic
actuator descriptions and the major differences between various models are
given in detail. Also included is the theory of operation of the actuator and major
subassemblies and a description of actuator electric controls. Environmental
qualification, torque bench testing, and certification of actuators are also dis-
cussed. The guide also includes numerous tables of actuator performance data
and detailed drawings of the actuator, its major subassemblies, and special
maintenance tools, as well as a discussion of design upgrades.

Actuator maintenance is discussed extensively in this guide. Included
are preventive maintenance recommendations and troubleshooting
methods, along with a discussion of problems that can cause actuator
failure. Complete disassembly and reassembly instructions are pro-
vided for the basic NA1 model.

EPRI PERSPECTIVE This document provides a guideline for utility


personnel to use as a detailed supplement to the manufacturer's techni-
cal instructions. Utility personnel who use this guide will reduce potential
error during Rotork actuator repair, testing, maintenance, and trouble-
shooting, leading to improved actuator performance and reliability.

ABSTRACT

This technical repair guide (TRG) covers Rotork motor operated valve actuator models
including Models A, AZ, NA1, NA2, NA4, NA5, NAX, NAT and NAZT in sizes 7 through 90.
The TRG is aimed at supplementing manufacturer's technical instructions, providing utility
engineering, operations and maintenance personnel with comprehensive, consistent
methods for repair, maintenance, testing and troubleshooting of Rotork actuators. A
description of the electrical and mechanical operation of the actuator and the differences
between various models is provided. The TRG provides extensive listings of actuator
performance data and numerous detailed actuator/subassembly drawings. Complete
disassembly and reassembly instructions are provided for the basis NA1 Model actuator.

INTRODUCTION

The purpose of this set of manuals is to provide a maintenance document aimed at


improving the long range operational reliability of Rotork motor operated valve actuators.
This Technical Repair Guide (TRG) is intended to provide the power-producing industry
with a technical methodology as a basic guideline and instructional tool for maintaining
Rotork actuator reliability and safety.

This set of manuals includes maintenance information for the following basic Rotork
models: 7A, 7AZ, 7NA1, 7NAX1, 7NAT1, 7NAZ1, 7NAZT1, 11A, 11AZ, 11NA1, 11NAX1,
11NAT1, 11NAZ1, 11NAZ1, 14A, 14AZ, 14NA1, 14NAX1, 14NAT1, 14NAZT1, 14NAZ1,
16A, 16AZ, 16NA1, 16NAX1, 16NAT1, 16NAZT1, 16NAZ1, 30A, 30AZ, 30NA1, 30NAX1,
30NAT1, 30NAZT1, 30NAZ1, 40A, 40AZ, 40NA1, 40NAX1, 40NAT1, 40NAZT1, 40NAZ1,
70A, 70AZ, 70NA1, 70NAX1, 70NAT1, 70NAZT1, 70NAZ1, 90A, 90AZ, 90NA1, 90NAX1,
90NAT1, 90NAZT1, and 90NAZ1. Other actuator model variations such as the NA2, NA4
and NA5 are similar in design to the NA1 actuator and only the differences will be
described. There are two other models of Rotork Actuators for non-thrusting applications
included in this guide. They are the Models AB and AR. These models have special
mounting bases which are not designed to accept thrust.

This TRG provides a general description of the actuator; various model differences and a
detailed mechanical operation description. Descriptions are provided for each of the
actuator sub-modules including the motor; switch mechanism; add-on-pak; syncroset
assembly; gearcase; thrust compensator and torque limiting brake. Included in the report
are basic electric control descriptions; environmental qualification summary and nameplate
data descriptions. Sections are included to describe upgrades made to the actuator over
time and a procedure for testing the actuator on a torque test bench. This TRG also
provides sections for troubleshooting actuator problems and descriptions of potential valve
problems that can lead to actuator failures.

Complete disassembly and reassembly procedures are given for each of the basic NA1
models to aid the maintenance technician during routine maintenance and actuator repair.
A section on special tools is provided to help identify the right tool for the job during the
maintenance activities.

The comprehensive approach of this set of manuals addresses the functions and needs of
plant personnel from managers to craft personnel. Since each plant has its own
administrative and management structure, the TRG is designed to provide the key
elements essential for implementation into each utility's maintenance program. These
manuals provide the technician or engineer with a single method of task performance.
Other methods exist which will accomplish these tasks, but the methods provided herein
are expected to have a minimal probability of human error consistent with providing
expedient resolution of the problem.

Due to the variety of valve/actuator configurations available, care should be taken to


ensure that the information and procedures presented here are consistent with the user's
plant specific organization, QA requirements and overall plant philosophy, as well as the
functional design requirements of the specific valve.

Although this document is written with the latest available information, changes in
actuator design, parts availability, etc., may supersede this document. Therefore, the user
of this document should ensure that no change has occurred since publication that might
affect the conclusions or recommendations of this document.
