Actuators for the renewable energies – hydroelectric industry
Different applications in the hydroelectric field may require linear automation technologies, with increasingly advanced and efficient performance. Different applications in the hydroelectric field may require linear automation technologies, with increasingly advanced and efficient performance. MecVel’s reply consists in offering a selection of electric linear actuators developed for the hydroelectric field.
- Dams: automation of the opening/closing of bulkheads for the water flow regulation
- Trash rack cleaners: handling of machines for maintenance and cleaning of rivers
In order to face the force of water and satisfy the specific operations required in this field of operation, the use of robust and efficient products is needed. Our actuators lay perfectly in this spot, as they are made with high-quality components, and their durability and efficiency are supported by over 30 years of experience.
MecVel products can be used to optimally control the opening and closing of bulkheads in dams and sluices for hydroelectric basins. The aim is to allow the turbine to operate at its best, by regulating the passage of water, creating a more controlled and constant flow.
In addition, the use of an electric linear actuator in a trash rack cleaner allows to control the activities related to maintenance and cleaning of rivers from any debris in an efficient and eco-sustainable way. Because the electric system in use has no impact on the environment in terms of pollution or contamination, it is the most logical linear motion choice.
Moreover, the company customization service allows having a series of technical measures to make MecVel products suitable for working also in humid or saline environments, due to the presence of water.
