Compared to other shut-off valve models, the gate valve requires much force for operation.

For this reason, the most typical actuator for gate valves with rotating stem is an electrical actuator.

The knife gate valves are an exception. For these valves, we recommend the use of a pneumatic actuator due to the high closing speed.

Fail-Safe function as an optional extra

We co-operate with common known electrical actuator manufacturers such as Auma, Bernard and Rotork whose actuators we use, if necessary.

The actuators can be equipped with optional equipment or a Fail-Safe function so that the actuator moves the valve into the closed position, even in the case of a power failure in the system. In addition, they can be fitted with fire protection.
