Reference project: Fish passage with ADE cylinder

Fish passage Oranjesluis Amsterdam Fish passage Oranjesluis Fish passage Oranjesluis-Amsterdam

The Orange Locks are a complex of screen locks in the IJ. A fish passage is a hydraulic engineering work of art whose purpose is to give fish access to a hinterland that has become inaccessible through a lock. 

With the ADE cylinder MSK-50 a slider is operated which creates a lure stream for the fish in the water. This allows the fish to pass the lock easily. With this environmentally friendly cylinder we help the fish to have a better life. In particular for the small glass eel and three-spined barley. With this we contribute to animal friendliness.

  • Drive fish passage: ADE MSK-50, stroke 2500mm, pulling force 50kN

  • Equipped with Auma motor with direct attached controller

  • Quick response, short lines
  • Renowned manufacturers
  • Profound product knowledge
  • High reliability

We supply slewing ring bearings, oscillating mountings, tensioner devices from stock and we also have spiral bevel gearboxes, servo gears and electromechanical actuators in our delivery program.

In addition we also select and offer the right components and systems for motion control solutions, such as servo gear motors, linear servo actuators and complete XYZ cartesian systems.
