CASE STUDY – QUICK DELIVERY PREVENTS DELAYS FOR POWER STATION

  The Project The end user needed to replace an existing actuated valve in operation on an isolation steam valve application due to general wear and tear. Isolation valves are a key component in any fluid system as they are used to stop the flow of fluid into a particular area of the system.

CASE STUDY – SIGNIFICANT UPGRADE TO SLUDGE DRYING PANS

The Project A major treatment plant in Victoria had a requirement to automate 24 inlet valves that filled their sludge drying pans. Each sludge drying pan is similar in size to a standard soccer field and require manual input to open and close the knifegate valves periodically, possibly 2 – 3 times per year.

CASE STUDY – VICTORIAN TOWN TAKES ACTION DURING DROUGHT

  The Project With an existing holding tank which held water from various suppliers, the local water authority decided to build a brand new purification plant. This was a new project that would enable the filtration and purification of local bore water via a Micro Media Filter system as a supplement to the town’s water supply.

UPGRADE REQUIRED TO AVOID POSSIBLE OH&S ISSUES

          The Project The end user contacted Acrodyne to replace and automate 4 x knife gate valves that had previously been manually operated. The manually operated valves required multiple turns to open / close and due to their age became increasingly hard to operate.
