The MEA Eagle Hydraulic Power Unit and Actuator were developed by MEA for FCCU (Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit) slide valve applications in oil refineries. First introduced in the field in 1979 as an analog system, they now come with fully digital controls providing precise position to a resolution of 1/1000th of an inch.
When fully networked with your DCS, operation can take place remotely while self-diagnostics and predictive maintenance can communicate a potential problem before it even occurs. With optional redundant controls, a secondary control system will seamlessly take over in the event of a failure assuring that your process continues uninterrupted while maintenance takes place. This 100% always-on reliability can eliminate unplanned shut downs all together.
