Challenge

Reliable Hydramotors are critical for valve and damper control in nuclear power plants. Plant operators need a reliable supply of equipment, service and parts. 

Solution

Framatome continues its long-standing relationship with Automatic Switch Company (ASCO), including the supply of nuclear-grade NH90 series and commercial grade AH90 series ASCO Hydramotor® actuators and actuator parts kits. These Hydramotors have demonstrated field-proven performance for valve and damper control in nuclear power plants.

Our arrangement with ASCO makes Framatome the exclusive nuclear stocking distributor of parts kits. Plus, we are the only authorized ASCO Service Center for overhauling and repairing the NH90 and AH90 series actuators for the nuclear industry. In addition, we provide comprehensive technical product support in accordance with OEM specifications, including application engineering, parts stocking, rebuilding, and training.
