Value Added Service
In everything we do we provide value enhancement. Whether it is our in-house shop which provides machining or cylinder repair and manufacture, or our design team providing custom creative solutions, AWT will ensure you, our customers, get what you need.
Anything from The Bettis / Emerson Valve Automation World!
We can provide an automation valve/actuator/control package for any application. Our Valve Automation Division has the capability to automate any valve to efficiently meet your needs, no matter what the power source – (pneumatic, hydraulic, gas-hydraulic, or electric).
AWT builds stock control systems and hydraulic power units for operating line valves. Our custom designed electro-hydraulic units fit every application. Modular hydraulic valve control is becoming known, from its roots in harsh environments such as marine and oil platform industry, for its high reliability over long periods compared to similar pneumatics or mechanical/electric systems. Power units for actuation (built by AWT Automation in Canada with over 40 years experience in application specific industries), such as valve automation, ring mains and self contained systems for oil & gas, and marine topside platforms are some of the most reliable in the industry.
AWT specializes in the design of controls and instrumentation panels & enclosures. Designing for gas, pneumatic and hydraulic control and actuation with instrumentation payloads, network bus remote and local control. AWT panels can be certified for CSA at our facility under INTERTEK or LabTEK. Economic value is provided in design assistance, and component specification, many of which are distributed and stocked by AWT.
EH Self Contained
AWT Electro-Hydraulic Systems for valve automation operate spring return (SR) or double acting actuators for any 1/4 turn or small linear application, including conversion of multi-turn gate valves. EH systems may be superior to electric MOV operators, in harsh environments, where guaranteed FAIL-SAFE is required and when remote operation and solar power is desired.
EH Self Contained and Power Units
The AWT Electro-hydraulic SCx – remotely operable valve controller is designed to provide automated control of line-break, ESD, or blow-down valves via line pilot, rate of drop or electrical fail-safe signal. Available in solar powered models, the pressure pilot operated fail-safe operates even without battery power, consuming little or no power from the control modules to maintain or re-seat the valve (12 or 24 volt DC). The SCx maintains valve position with no operator intervention. As a self-contained hydraulic emergency shutdown system it preserves local control with the added feature of reliable remote valve operation, and automatic re-seating, overcoming the hydraulic creep-down of the valve caused by the spring return actuator.
Shafer Power Units
AWT offers Shafer™ power units and fuel gas powered power units for natural gas valve control using AWT EH1 and EH2 electrohydaulic.
