Designed specifically for applications in the oil and gas sectors, TIGRON is the “powerful new actuator” from AUMA, “offering the highest levels of explosion protection for total peace of mind”.

Designed to meet the exacting 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 trends in digitalisation,” said AUMA.

It added: “The versatile all-rounder provides safe and reliable valve automation across all application sectors, including oil and gas production, pipelines, tank farms and refineries.”

TIGRON actuators are ATEX and IECEx certified for the highest gas group IIC, which includes the highly flammable hydrogen. Other approvals will follow.

The actuators are designed to withstand the harshest environmental conditions, covering a particularly wide temperature range from –65 °C to +75 °C. IP68 enclosure protection and AUMA’s extremely resistant powder coating protect effectively against tropical downpours, ocean spray and desert sandstorms.

For installation in hard-to-reach locations or where vibration is a problem, the controls can be mounted separately, up to 100 metres away from the actuator. TIGRON actuators will also be available in SIL versions.
