AUMA’s successful performance at Shoshone scheme

Posted: Wednesday 26th August 2015

Comprehensive services provided by AUMA at the Shoshone Municipal Water Treatment Plant located in Cody, Wyoming, USA confirms the electric actuator manufacturer’s strength in offering a modular device design, its retrofit abilities and its training support.

An initial assessment was conducted by AUMA Actuators, Inc. and valve supplier Intermountain Valves & Controls (IVC). The scope of the project that was determined included replacing existing actuators and retrofitting more than 50 AUMA intelligent actuators to butterfly valves.

AUMA services included the onsite mounting of actuation technology and training Shoshone operatives. Key factors in selection of AUMA products included the company’s modular concept which simplifies on-site upgrades, the ability to combine the actuators with 7 m long extensions submerged in the filter basin and the availability of GS part-turn gearboxes, which automate large scale butterfly and ball valves.

Managed by the Shoshone Municipal Pipeline – Shoshone Municipal Water Joint Powers Board, the water treatment plant has a capacity of 23 Million cubic meters per annum. The pipeline, supported by contractors including AUMA, works to exacting standards to operate and maintain its plant and transmission pipelines to produce a reliable and cost effective water supply that exceeds US EPA standards.
