Cross Manufacturing has introduced the Cross Phoenix IQT, an in-line automatic backwashing filter incorporating intelligent valve actuation technologies. The Cross Phoenix combines the mechanical benefits of the Phoenix automatic water filter with the Rotork IQT intelligent electric valve actuator, providing self-contained local and remote electrical control, indication and diagnostics within a double-sealed IP68 watertight and temporarily submersible enclosure. The Phoenix IQT features secure, non-intrusive point and shoot commissioning and interrogation – with or without mains power connected – by means of a hand held setting tool. Menus displayed on the actuator screen facilitate filter settings and commissioning. The integral actuator data logger records all settings and a historical log of operating data, including torque profiles. The filter can be specified for three-phase, single-phase or DC electrical power supplies to suit existing site control systems. The Phoenix IQT is manufactured with all-stainless steel wetted parts and has a maximum flow rating of up to 18ltr per second at pressures up to 10bar. Digital bus connectivity options encompass Profibus, Foundation Fieldbus, DeviceNet, Modbus and Pakscan.
