AWP Delivers Motor-Actuated Valves at a Value of More than One Million Euros with One Single Order

For a major project in the food industry in Russia, a customer ordered numerous large-diameter motor-actuated valves equipped with electric actuators especially adapted to the valves.

It was not less than 90 valves in nominal diameters of DN 100 to DN 500 in PS 40 pressure stage that left AWP’s factory in Prenzlau in week 39 and 40. Two complete trucks with semitrailers were needed to transport the goods. The majority of the valves is equipped with adapted electric actuators which are connected to the valve’s stem. To close the valve the actuator moves the stem clockwise, lowering the valve plate onto the valve seat. To open it the actuator moves the stem counter-clockwise and thereby raises the valve plate. These actuators have been adapted to each valve individually to realize special closing times of less than 60 seconds up to 120 seconds. The valves are designed for media temperatures of -60 °C to +150 °C, the electric actuators are designed for ambient temperatures of -40 °C to +60 °C. We would be glad to support your project as well, don’t hesitate to contact us:
