The most simple to install, reliable, accurate and safe existing gate automation system.

Reliable, accurate, and safe

Simple, safe and automated gate actuation with anti-jamming system

Electromechanical drive system developed by Capta Hydro,
which allows the safe operation of the gates avoiding jams or accidents derived from their automation.

  • Directly connected to gears, gate handwheels or valves, without the need to stop the flume or modify existing drive mechanisms.
  • Anti-jamming system that prevents jamming caused by stones or foreign elements, with three levels of redundancy, increasing the safety of automatic operation and improving the tightness of the total closing of the gates.

Success stories in operations
channel reviews

“Capta Hydro’s CFC HI gates have enabled us to improve the safe operation of the canal by installing emergency delivery and discharge gates on the Main Canal which carries around 35,000 L/s, without the need to stop the canal. We have confidence in Capta Hydro and their high level of professionalism that they have consistently shown over the years.”
