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.
