TIGRON actuators from AUMA meet the stringent requirements of the global oil and gas industry. TIGRON combines the highest level of explosion protection, robust design, outstanding ease of operation, and the latest digitalization trends, drawing on AUMA's more than 50 years of experience as a leading electric actuator manufacturer. The adaptable all-rounder ensures safe and dependable valve automation in various applications, including oil and gas production, pipelines, tank farms, and refineries.
TIGRON actuators are ATEX, and IECEx certified for gas groups IIC, which includes highly flammable hydrogen. Other approvals will come later. The actuators withstand the harshest environmental conditions, with a temperature range ranging from –65 °C to +75 °C. IP68 enclosure protection and AUMA's ultra-durable powder coating effectively protect against tropical downpours, ocean spray, and desert sandstorms.
The controls can be mounted separately, up to 100 m away from the actuator, for installation in difficult-to-reach areas or where vibration is a problem. TIGRON actuators will be available in SIL versions as well.
