Biogas is produced during the effluent treatment process at the city’s largest waste water plant Klaerwerk Gut Grosslappen, situated close to the world famous Munich Allianz Arena, home to Bayern Munich football club.

The ExMax actuators have been installed in the digester and fermentation tanks, where all electrical equipment must be approved for use in hazardous areas. Built inside four large towers, the fermentation tanks mix the waste at a defined temperature to produce the biogas. For optimum performance the inner tank temperature must be maintained at 38ºC. Six ExMax actuators are installed in an area known as the lamp atthe top of each tower for the operation of air dampers to balance the inside temperature with fluctuating ambient temperatures on the outside.

Factors favouring the Rotork Schischek products for this application include their compact size, ease of installation, standardised connections and Zone 1 hazardous area explosionproof certification. In addition Rotork Schischek has developed established relationships with the damper OEM, local engineering companies and the end user.

All Rotork Schischek products are manufactured with colour coding to indicate at a glance the appropriate hazardous or non-hazardous area of application. Yellow denotes hazardous Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22, red denotes hazardous Zones 2 and 22 and green denotes nonhazardous areas only.
