Ramén Valves offers high quality electric actuators from well-known manufacturers and leading brands in the market (e.g. Oden Control, Auma, Rotork Sweden (Remote Control). We supply actuators for all power requirements (24-400 VAC/VDC). These actuators can also provide various communication protocols such as Foundation Field Bus, Profibus, Modbus, Hart and wireless. Some has an optional positioner and some built-in.
How electric actuators work
Electric actuators use electrical energy to produce the mechanical force required to operate the valve. The actuators are used for isolation and modulation/control applications in power plants, water/wastewater plants, food and pharmaceutical industries, marine sectors and in underwater engineering. Applications with electric actuators have increased significantly in recent years. This is because they require no or very little maintenance, as well as the least possible number of accessories and auxiliary systems (e.g. instrument air/hydraulics). They also offer smart, integrated control functions.
Our different brands
Having supplied the industry with electrically actuated control valves for several decades, we have acquired valuable knowledge about which automation solutions are best suited for different valves, applications, and industries. We apply this knowledge in all our customer offers. We focus on material and energy optimization and thus create a more sustainable and efficient flow control and valve operation. To be able to offer our customers the best possible automation solution, we have chosen to cooperate with a few carefully selected manufacturers of electrical actuators. These are Auma, Oden Control and Rotork.
Auma electric actuators
Auma is a world-leading supplier of electric actuators. They offer several different types of actuators for different operating cases and conditions. Electric actuators are suitable for both on/off operation and regulation. Ramén Valves offers all electrical actuators available from Auma, all assembled, tested and ready for commissioning.
As an example, Ramén has chosen to use the PROFOX model as one of the components in the complete Ramén KSC valve package, but there are also variants for 3-phase, 400VAC, e.g. Auma SQR for regulation and Auma SQ for on/off.
Auma actuators are delivered in different configurations and with their clear display the user is provided with information and diagnostics about both the actuator and the valve. In addition, it is easy to install and intuitively commission the entire valve, either directly on the display or via a mobile app.
Oden Control electric actuators
Oden Control has a wide product range of electric actuators for regulating valves. The actuators have very good precision, low weight and are easy to install. Oden Control also manufactures special actuators for applications within surface weight regulation in paper mills.
Rotork electric actuators
The RCEL series from Rotork includes a range of models of reliable and robust electric actuators. RCELs have a smooth and smooth stroke that helps maximize the life cycle of the valve. The actuators work for ON/OFF applications as well as for regulation. They are offered with mounting kits for standard ISO apertures but are also available in custom designs.
