Torque-Limiting Device

Smith Flow Control’s TorkDrive prevents manual valves from being damaged by excessive torque application during valve operation. It can be customized to suit most manufacturers’ handwheel operated valves when a torque monitoring of more than 59 ft-lbf is required. The device is a customizable add-on tool that minimizes the risk of plant or process shutdown and unnecessary repair costs through valve overtorque. It can be specified as a simple, standalone unit mounted on the valve input handwheel or directly to the valve input shaft; or it can be used in conjunction with the EasiDrive portable valve actuator, a nonimpacting, air-driven power tool designed to simplify valve operations.
