เกจอาร์กอน at AJT Engineering has recently accomplished the set up of a new 30″ Main Inlet Valve for a client’s small hydro energy station.
The new VAG Group EKN Hydropower butterfly valve, mixed with a Rotork SI-3 failsafe actuator, now offers the consumer with full automation in comparison with the previous guide operation.
AJT designed, manufactured and installed a new spool piece in-house to match current face to face dimensions. Whilst Cadherent offered designs for a assist for the Rotork actuators substantial failsafe spring mechanism – this too was then fabricated by AJT at our services in Aberdeen.
The set up was then finished off with new galvanised handrailing to guard from the pit opening.
Many thanks go to all our valued suppliers and contractors who continue to make these tasks attainable: Cadherent, Stoddard Crane Hire, VAG Group, Gareth Beck, Rotork, KGAL Consulting Engineers Ltd.
