ACTUATOR STANDARDIZATION AND PERFORMANCE
For water districts that have standardized on a preferred actuator brand, they don't have to install a 'special' actuator for earthquake shutoff applications. Rather, districts can apply already commercially successful actuators from major suppliers such as Auma, EIM, Limitorque, Rotork, etc. as best fits their program requirements. ESS doesn't market its own actuator. Rather, we integrate our panel to work with the best actuator for the project. Cities in certain regions may receive better support from one manufacturer over another. When they install their earthquake actuated shutoff system it just makes sense for them to know that they, the end-user, have the option to use their preferred actuator.
These photos are typical of the quality of actuator supplied with an ESS earthquake actuated water shutoff system.
