EasiDrive valve actuators for multiple valves

Smith Flow Control has developed the EasiDrive portable valve actuator to operates valves in power plants. The actuator allows one operator to efficiently operate multiple valves with a single tool while reducing fatigue and injury risk. The tool is especially effective on valves that require a high number of turns or are otherwise difficult to operate.
“Power industry operators can strain themselves while manually operating valves and we introduced the EasiDrive System as a solution to their problem,” Mike Fynes, Sales and Marketing Director at Smith Flow Control comments. “It is time consuming to open and close large valves that are not actuated. Two operators can spend almost 20 minutes working together to open just one gate valve. By using the EasiDrive system, one operator can open the valve in a few minutes.”
EasiDrive is a lightweight, portable and adaptable pneumatic tool. The tool’s custom engineered reaction device protects the user from the “kick” normally associated with other torque tools, eliminating the possibility of any injury associated with its operation.
EasiDrive also features a variable output torque, controlled by a choice of limited pre-set Filter Regulator (FRL) packs, which prevents excessive torque being applied and ensures proper and safe operation of the valve.
