Controls

niwatec GmbH develops and manufactures complete controls for various applications. Owing to their modular design, niwatec controls can easily be equipped with additional components. Also the replacement of already installed parts can easily be carried out due to the block design. In the correspondent submenu you will find more details on our well-established types of controls, as e.g. electro-hydraulic, gas, gas over oil or wellhead controls. Moreover we will be happy to submit you indiviual offers. Just contact us.

Our products satisfy even most sophisticated requirements concerning both reliability and functionality. This is guaranteed by our longtime experience in the international oil and gas and cavern storage industry as well as in the chemical, petrochemical, and power plant industry, and in the water and environmental technology. Also the high quality level of our component suppliers plays a major role.


 

Electro-hydraulic Control

Produktbild

Together with our niwatec NWS Scotch yoke actuator or the NWLA linear actuator, our electro-hydraulic control guarantees a trouble-free and safe procedure during all kinds of operating conditions.

Oil is pumped out of the oil tank into the bladder or piston accumulator by means of an electric oil pump. Once the pressure needed for the unit is reached, the pump turns off automatically. Upon receiving a signal from the control, one of the two solenoid valves (either for opening or for closing the ball valve) opens the corresponding pipe and hydraulic oil pours from the accumulator into the hydraulic cylinder. The actuator drives and opens or closes the ball valve. In case of a power breakdown, one or more emergency strokes can be undertaken according to customer‘s specification.

There are various possibilities to operate the unit:

  • by remote signal from the process control system
  • service directly on site (manual operation) using the control or the emergency manual override at the solenoid valve
  • stroke with pressure from the bladder accumulator in case of power breakdown (emergency operation 1)
  • by operating the hand pump (emergency operation 2)

The modular structure facilitates maintenance and the integration of security relevant components such as linebreak control systems, high-, low- or differential pressure pilots and ESD-valves.

Gas Control

Produktbild

With this type of control, solenoid valves lead the pipeline pressure directly into the cylinder, thereby opening or closing the unit. The amount of gas needed for regulation purposes is reduced considerably since gas or oil reservoirs are not employed. Furthermore, the actuators are more compact and weigh less than conventional gas over oil systems. niwatec‘s DG direct gas control can be equipped with a handwheel or with a hydraulic cylinder with hand pump, both working independently from the control.

The modular structure facilitates maintenance and the integration of security-relevant components, such as linebreak control systems, high-, low- or differential pressure pilots and ESD valves.

Produktbild

niwatec GmbH offers high or low pilots as well as differential pressure switches for pipeline protection against overpressure or underpressure that may be integrated in the control. In case the pressure in the pipeline differs from the adjusted reference value, the pilot triggers off the opening or closing of the valve into the safety position.

Produktbild

niwatec GmbH offers two different linebreak systems. These systems ensure that in a case of average the joined actuator drives into the safety position. This completely automised procedure provides protection against further damages and subsequent accidents. The only difference between these two systems is the measuring method of the decrease in pressure.

The Mechanical Linebreak System is integrated into the control system and is independent from electric current. In case of average, this system overrides all other valves and therewith ensures that the actuator drives into the safety position.

The Electronic Linebreak System is equipped with additional transmission interface. Thus, various information can be transferred into the process control system. Like the mechanical linebreak, the electronic linebreak ensures that the actuator drives into the safety position in case of an average.
