One of the largest wastewater treatment plants in the world recently replaced its pneumatic actuators and upgraded to the Acrodyne Beck sludge valve actuator.
In particular, the operation of the pneumatic actuators was causing intermittent problems as it would stick from time to time, leading to poor control capabilities.
By installing the Beck actuator, the wastewater treatment facility has seen a significant reduction in the number of corrective work orders placed concerning sludge valve maintenance.
Acrodyne's Beck actuators are uniquely designed electromechanical devices that offer constant, precise control without the performance and maintenance limitations of typical actuators.
After three years of service in the wastewater treatment plant, the number of corrective work orders for the new Beck equipment was reduced by 95%.
