Marine & Industrial Hydraulics Trident Actuator Company

Advantages of Trident Actuators:

Trident Actuators are a Green alternative and include many other significant advantages to central hydraulic systems for the operation of valves and gates.

Features

Trident Actuators

Central Hydraulic Systems

Green

Trident Actuators are environmentally friendly since they are self-contained and sealed.

Central hydraulic systems can leak oil causing environmentally unfriendly and hazardous conditions.

Reliable

One Trident Actuator operates a single valve or gate. In the unlikely event the operation of an actuator fails, it only impacts the operation of one valve or gate. Back-up procedures are available to minimize downtime of any one actuator.

Central hydraulic systems control the operation of all or many valves and gates. If the Central Hydraulic System fails, it can shut down the operation of all valves and gates creating a catastrophic situation.

Maintenance

Trident Actuators are virtually maintenance free.

Central hydraulic systems require continual and routine maintenance.

Safe

Trident Actuators are safe, since they are self-contained and sealed.

Central hydraulic systems can spew high pressure oil posing a risk to employees. They can also leak oil creating hazardous working conditions.

Environmental Ratings

Trident Actuators can be designed to be explosion proof and submersible thus mitigating damage in the event of an explosion or flood.

Central hydraulic systems can sustain damage in the event of an explosion or flood.

Space

Trident Actuators are space efficient.

Central hydraulic systems require substantial floor and wall space for the system.
