Valve actuators serve a variety of functions in water and sewage treatment plants. They control the flow of billions of gallons of water/wastewater daily and must withstand high water pressures, high flow velocities, extreme temperatures, and environmental exposure. While being subjected to these harsh conditions, valve actuators need to provide consistent accuracy, precision, and control—as the slightest failure can have critical safety and financial consequences.
ICI in the Water Industry
Indelac Controls, Inc. (ICI) offers a full spectrum of electric actuators that are used in water and wastewater treatment facilities. Our robust actuators are designed to meet or exceed the standards developed by the AWWA (American Water Works Association) including:
- C540-93: AWWA Compliant* (5000 - 27000 in/lb) Standard for Power-Actuating Devices for Valves and Sluice Gates
- C542-09: AWWA Compliant* (5000 - 27000 in/lb) Electric Motor Actuators for Valves and Slide Gates
Our full product line of electric actuators includes:
- Quarter-Turn Electric Actuators (100-27,300 in lbs. torque)
- Spring Return Electric Actuators (200-1,200 in. lbs. torque)
- Internal Battery Back-Up Actuators (400-2,800 in. lbs. torque)
Of special note for water and wastewater treatment operations, our heavy duty K Series quarter-turn electric actuators are especially useful for the high-pressure, high-flow applications. The K Series features corrosion resistant polyester coatings, a NEMA 4 enclosure, increased power capacity, and a range of other protective features that make them one of the most durable heavy duty electric actuators on the market.
All of our actuators are designed, manufactured, and tested with maximum durability, service life, and performance in mind. We use hardened steel gears, permanent lubrication, and heavy duty sand-casted aluminum enclosures to protect against harmful environmental factors and extreme temperatures. All product lines include actuators featuring NEMA 4, NEMA 4X, NEMA 7, and NEMA 9 compliant enclosures for safe operation in hazardous environments. We also offer also special protective coatings – epoxy coatings, electroless nickel plating, chromium conversion coatings, and anodized coatings – for actuators that must operate in abrasive or corrosive conditions.
Our electric actuators are an ideal solution for a wide variety of operations in the water and wastewater industry, such as:
