Title: A TORQUE TRANSFER BRACKET FOR A LARGE BALL VALVE
Abstract:
A torque transfer bracket mounting assembly (1332) for a gearbox and motor actuator (326, 524) to a large ball valve (210). The mounting assembly (1332) may have two opposed bracketing members (438) that are applied to two opposed end faces (532) of a ball housing (216) of the ball valve (210). The actuator (326, 524) may be coupled to the mounting assembly (1332) by a top plate (434). In use of the mounting assembly, a resultant torque from the actuator acting on a stem (212) of the ball valve (210) is transferred or transmitted to the end faces (532) of the ball housing (216), well away from the stem bearing housing (228).
