The Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent) has granted utility patent No. 192264 “Part-turn electric drive” in the name of Transneft Baltic, Transneft, the Pipeline Transport Institute and Transneft Central Siberia.

This technical solution was obtained as part of implementing the R&D agreement by specialists of the companies included in the Transneft system.

The part-turn electric drive is designed to control valves with a movable element (a shutter) that is mounted mounted in a way that lets it rotate (ball valves, rotary disks, shutters).

The development will increase the efficiency of the transmission mechanism of the part-turn electric drive of the shut-off and control valves and ensure the self-braking effect when the electric motor is off.

The technical solution is intended for introduction at Transneft’s operational facilities and is recommended for large-scale implementation in industrial production.
