Steel water engineering - Sluice applications and movable bridges

RACO electric actuators are used for the opening and closing as well as locking of bascule bridges

During the engineering phase of the project all by code required calculations, test documents and certificates will be generated by RACO.

Particular attention was paid to the hydro technical application conditions for the electric actuator under the following aspects:

  • Live expectancy of the actuator but in particular to the spindle and nut system
  • Operational integrity under extreme temperature conditions and temperature changes
  • Corrosion resistance of the components and the appropriate classification
