Bernard Controls failsafe FQ range actuators are used in multiple Oil & Gas and Power-Water-Industry applications. 

The failsafe FQ range plays a critical role in the General Motors facility in Arlington, Texas (USA). These actuators are used to shut-down the valves used in fluid processing for brake fluid and gasoline.

The reliability and performance of the FQ range combined with local customer service and support from the Bernard Controls USA team were key factors in the contractors decision for this facility. Our team's expertise and technical knowledge ensured the proper operations in the plant for a well running environment.
