Smith Flow Control introduces EasiDrive portable safety valve operating system for paper and pulp industries

August 12, 2013 - 16:56

ERLANGER, KY, Aug. 8, 2013 (Press Release) - Large valves used in the paper and pulp industries can be safely operated with Smith Flow Control's EasiDrive portable valve operating system. EasiDrive's reaction device transmits torque onto the valve body and away from the operator, making it one of the safest valve operating systems available.

EasiDrive is a cost-effective alternative to a dedicated valve actuator. Paper and pulp plants often use manually operated valves with high operating torques. These can require hundreds of hand wheel turns to open and close or are just difficult to operate. Unlike an impact wrench that can damage a valve, the EasiDrive is a continuous drive system.

Typical pulp and paper applications can include large, sluice gate valves, valves with stem extensions and valves operated by gear boxes with a high number of turns.
