Protecting plant assets

Published:  24 February, 2014

SMITH FLOW CONTROL has launched TorkDrive, a device that can be mounted to either the valve input handwheel or directly to the valve input shaft to safeguard the valve from excessive torque.

The company says TorkDrive has two distinct benefits. It prevents valve damage, thus reducing the need for expensive plant shutdown and valve replacement (through over-torque) and provides vital information regarding site maintenance requirements.

TorkDrive can increase valve life as it prevents the operator from applying excessive force when closing the valve, protecting the valve seat. TorkDrive controls the torque applied when operating a valve, ensuring that the same force is used regardless of the strength of the operator.
