EasiDrive operates valves with ease
Smith Flow Control’s EasiDrive portable valve actuator effortlessly opens and closes valves in oil refineries, power plants, paper mills and chemical processing facilities. The tool is especially effective on valves that require a high number of turns or are otherwise difficult to operate because of high torque or where adverse climates (sub-zero, tropical, dessert environments) make operations more challenging.
It has several key features that make it exceptional. One operator can efficiently drive multiple valves with a single tool, whilst reducing fatigue and risk of injury; this can results in major cost and time savings.
EasiDrive is lightweight and portable, enabling workers to operate valves with ease, unlike typical torque wrenches which are heavy and cumbersome. The comfortable pistol grip allows the operator to have total control of the system and the uniquely designed reaction kit provides protection from the ‘kick’ typically associated with other torque devices.
EasiDrive features a variable output torque, controlled by choice of pre-set Filter Regulator Lubricator packs. This ensures the correct torque is applied at all times and operators are safe, even when under pressure to respond quickly.
The EasiDrive system is versatile and can be powered by air, electricity or battery, giving the client ultimate control over their preferred choice. Torque of up to 2000NM can be generated, depending on the client’s choice of equipment.
