Underwater Valve Control Solutions

AUMA Actuators, a leader in valve automation technology, is pushing the boundaries of innovation with the latest version of their SA multi-turn actuator. This groundbreaking actuator is specifically designed for continuous underwater valve control , making it ideal for various water-related applications such as water supply systems, hydropower plants, civil engineering constructions, and specialized underwater tasks.

Underwater Valve Control

In scenarios where water supply or sewer pipes run underground, valves and actuators are often installed in pits below ground level. Conventional actuators may fail to operate reliably in areas prone to high water levels or flooding. AUMA’s underwater valve control actuators are engineered to tackle these challenges, ensuring consistent performance even in persistently flooded conditions.

A Robust Sealing System and Superior Corrosion Protection

AUMA’s underwater valve control actuators boast a universal sealing system and comprehensive corrosion protection, making them suitable for underwater use. Key features include double-sealed cable glands at the electrical connection, paired inner seals on all housing covers, and a one-piece solid shaft, all of which effectively prevent water ingress.

Peter Malus, Product Manager at AUMA, emphasizes the benefits of these electric actuators: “Our electric actuators are very easy to install – they just require a power supply and a signal cable. Low operating costs also characterize them, and they are virtually maintenance-free. And they offer a clean and environmentally friendly solution, as no oil that might leak and contaminate the water is used. This turns them into a real alternative to hydraulic actuators.”

AUMA SA Actuators: Meeting the Demands of Underwater Valve Control Applications

SA actuators in sizes 07.2 to 16.2 are available for continuous underwater valve control use. As standard, these actuators are qualified for up to 15 meters head of water, with higher head capacities available upon request.

Non-Intrusive Actuator Settings and Control Flexibility for Underwater Valve Control

All actuator settings, including end position settings for travel and torque, can be configured non-intrusively via the AC actuator controls. Opening the actuator housing is unnecessary, simplifying the configuration process. The actuator controls are installed outside the flooded area, separate from the valve and actuator, allowing for cable lengths of up to 100 meters.
