EasiDrive valve operation tool

Friday, 06 March, 2015 | Supplied by: Sofis Valve Operation


Smith Flow Control’s EasiDrive portable valve actuator is designed for use with valves requiring a large number of turns or which are otherwise difficult to operate because of high torque or harsh climate conditions.

The device provides the operator with control when opening and closing different sized valves with varying torque requirements. One person can efficiently drive multiple valves with a single tool, reducing fatigue and risk of injury. It can be used in virtually any industry, from oil refineries and petrochemical plants to power stations and paper mills.

Key features include: low-cost alternative to permanent actuators; no permanent power supply required; suitable for minimum facilities installations and all climatic conditions; wideband torque capability with variable torque adjustment as standard; suitable for moving tight or partially seized valves; adaptable to any size/type of valve; eliminates operator fatigue and greatly reduces the risk of injury; no ‘kickback’ often associated with other torque devices; variable output torque - so no damage to valves by ‘over-torquing’; reduces work crew tasks to one-man operation; and fully portable - can manage banks of valves with a single drive tool.

The ‘reaction kit’, which prevents a torque kickback, is useful as valve movement is always fully controlled, preventing operator injury and fatigue. In addition, the variable torque output feature, which prevents excessive torque being applied, ensures proper and safe valve operation at all times.

The device is highly versatile and can be powered by air, electricity or battery. It can also be custom designed to suit specific site requirements.
