EasiDrive op­er­ates valves with ease

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

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.
