Weir and sluice automation aided by AUMA
A brochure providing over 30 pages of technical information confirms AUMA actuators’ expertise as a partner for developers of steel constructions for water systems, such as weirs and sluices.
AUMA’s actuation technology, which has been developed over 45 years, provides tailored solutions to meet the technical specifications of weir and sluice applications including corrosion protection, motor duty types, locking/braking systems, brackets and failure behaviour.
The modular actuator manufacturer reports that steel constructions for water systems have to maintain their functionality under extreme conditions such as ice loads or hundred year floods to prevent damage to people, animals and assets. AUMA advises that actuators are key components to guarantee the required performance levels.
With a global portfolio of water system customers, AUMA actuators are integrated into steel based solutions at rivers, streams and lakes including the Muda River, Malaysia and Tom Miller Dam, Colorado River, Texas USA.
The new brochure entitled ‘Actuator solutions in steel constructions for water systems’ can be downloaded on the AUMA Web site at www.auma.com
