Efficient valve automation for wastewater treatment

Fresh water is our most important resource, and as water reserves are dwindling, the need for efficient treatment of wastewater becomes more crucial. Wastewater treatment is a hot topic all over the world and the requests for automation and process optimisation increase.

Electric linear actuator solutions for valve automation feature:

  • Do-it-yourself installation
  • Reliable and maintenance-free actuators
  • Choose your preferred level of automation and control

Uptime is pivotal when hundreds of tonnes of water are being treated daily and when environmental regulations must be met. This requires reliable and robust automation solutions with a high functional stability.

LINAK offers solutions that include simplicity in installation, low energy consumption, adaptable control, and they require no maintenance.


Do-it-yourself installation in three simple steps
It only takes three simple steps to mount a LINAK actuator system on a slide gate, sluice gate/penstock, gate or knife gate valve. This do-it-yourself mounting offers swift and trouble-free automation of manual valves and easy exchange of existing actuators.
Installation of the LINAK actuator system can be performed by any site worker. This will save both time and costs in the daily water treatment.

Get a reliable system with zero maintenance
Obviously, to ensure stable wastewater treatment, all equipment needs to work relentlessly in harsh and moist outdoor conditions. LINAK electric actuators are thoroughly tested, maintenance-free, and are ready to ensure reliable and efficient uptime for valves for wastewater treatment.

Adaptable to your need for automation and control
No matter what the level of control – whether your need is an automation solution working with SCADA or one that is manually adjusted – LINAK actuator systems provide a solution. It is easy to adapt the control unit of the LINAK system to your specific requirements by changing a few settings using a universal programming unit. Or, upgrade the system to BUS communication simply by adding a module to the existing control unit.
