Rotork acquires K-Tork International Inc.

It is with great pleasure that Rotork Plc announces the purchase of all the share capital of K-Tork International Inc.

Based in Dallas, USA, K-Tork International Inc is a well established manufacturer of pneumatic vane-type actuators and damper drive systems, serving a wide range of industries and utilities. K-Tork actuators and Type K damper drives are designed for the precise control of quarter-turn valves and dampers. With only one moving part the design provides long term reliability in challenging and arduous operating environments.

K-Tork valve actuators are suitable for ball, butterfly and plug valves and can be easily retrofitted to existing valve installations. The range includes double-acting and spring-return options, manual overrides, open/close and modulating controls.

Type K damper drives are designed to control the combustion air and flue gas on power generation boilers, steam boilers, furnaces and process heaters. They are designed as ‘drop in place’ replacements for many older generation damper drives and will interface with conventional or bus network control systems.

K-Tork products complement existing product ranges and further strengthen Rotork’s market presence in the water, industrial and power sectors.
