SIPOS’ subterranean solution

3 February 2011

Latest underground conduction systems are being supported by SIPOS Aktorik’s actuators. A new design uses concrete rings as an alternative to shafts and tunnels. Requiring no maintenance, this approach is an ideal application for SIPOS’ variable speed actuators for valve control.

Built in shafts and tunnels, traditional below ground systems are costly to construct. Extending the network / providing ongoing maintenance is expensive and preventing ingress of water, soil and other particulates is challenging. The ‘concrete ring’ solution has therefore been introduced.

With a design that is ideally suited for this application, SIPOS’ actuators can be mounted on a below ground valve with the electronics unit installed in a separate, readily accessible, above ground cabinet. An integrated frequency converter protects motor controls making SIPOS’ product a ‘fit and forget’ solution that is ideally suited for this below earth application.

Other features that make SIPOS actuators appropriate for the underground application are an eight year servicing cycle and IP68 protection class which confirms the product’s high corrosion resistance.
