Electric Actuators for the Water and Wastewater Industry

Drinking water abstraction and distribution, as well as sewage disposal and purification are basic prerequisites for infrastructure development. Security of supply is crucial for modern water industry. The need for automated valves in water and wastewater treatment are abundant, and there are many applications where electric actuators assist with the solution for the most demanding problems.

Common Water Facilities Requiring Electric Actuators:
  • Sewage treatment plants
  • Water treatment plants
  • Drinking water distribution
  • Sewage disposal
  • Seawater desalination
AUMA's  broad product portfolio of multi-turn, part-turn, and linear actuators are well known and respected in the water industry worldwide due to their high corrosion protection, long service life, and low in maintenance.



Handy Hazardous Area Classification Guide

The electrical classification term "Hazardous Location" refers to areas where flammable gases, vapors, liquids, combustible dusts, ignitable fibers or flyings are present in the atmosphere in sufficient volume to cause an explosion of fire.

Electrical equipment placed in hazardous locations must be carefully selected and applied in accordance with national and international "HazLoc" (sometimes referred to as explosion-proof) standards. These standards evaluate the threat of explosion based on quantitative and qualitative criteria such as material phase, specific gas of liquid, and likelihood of exposure.

SOR, a world leading manufacturer of process control instrumentation, offers a handy quick reference page on their website. For your convenience, we are including a link below to the PDF version on the Instrument Specialties website for download.


This guide is just for reference. Consultation with a qualified applications specialist prior to the selection or installation of any hazardous area product is strongly suggested.
