Vexve Oy’s hydraulic control solutions

Vexve Oy’s Hydrox™ hydraulic control solutions are designed for the demanding valve operating conditions found in district heating and cooling networks. During the spring, Vexve experts visited the St. Petersburg district heating company GupTek, to present the latest Vexve innovation.

The hydraulic actuator has been developed by Vexve together with Tasowheel Oy and the Tampere University of Technology (TUT), where research activities in the field of hydraulics are among the best in the world.

The Hydrox solution design is in accordance with the requirements of the EN 15714-4 standard. In addition, Hydrox has European IP68 rating, which means that it is dust-tight and can withstand continuous immersion in water.

The Hydrox-actuator can be supplied with a control unit operated by hand pump (HCU™ Manual) and electrically driven hydraulic pump (HCU™ Manual+). Hydraulic actuators are also available with remote-controlled (HCU ™ Remote / HCU ™ Remote +) control units.

At present, manual and electrically actuated valves are more commonly used in Russia, but hydraulic control solutions complement existing actuator offerings particularly with regard to challenging sites.
