Esholt WwTW upgraded with AUMA fieldbus actuators

Posted: Friday 21st December 2007

AUMA electric actuators have been selected to be retrofitted at Yorkshire Water’s Esholt wastewater treatment works as part of a rebuild project.

The modular actuation technology with fieldbus capability is being installed to operate penstocks as part of the scheme’s first development phase and will replace existing actuators which have come to the end of their asset life. The Profibus enabled actuators with digital communication capabilities will remove the need for hard wiring to substantially increase the feedback of process information and provide a powerful communication solution.

MMB, who were contracted to Yorkshire Water to select the actuation technology for the scheme, chose the AUMA solution for reasons of technology and service. The product could be adapted to suit the treatment works’ precise needs and, based on Yorkshire Water’s requirements, AUMA was found to be highly proactive, professional and supportive.

As part of AUMA’s support for the scheme, the company will work with Adams Hydraulics to retrofit its actuators on existing penstocks at the wastewater treatment works. AUMA will commission, service and maintain all its actuator products at the site.
