Using a service valve wrench or valve opener to open or close manual multi-turn valves can easily result in damage and burrs, for instance by choosing an inappropriate hook. In addition, a service valve wrench will not prevent back strain, sore muscles or user fatigue.
Using a portable valve actuator
In many cases, using a portable valve actuator might be a better option than a service valve wrench. Portable actuators such as the Power Wrench are easy and safe to handle and allow for a controlled build-up of torque and speed. They are easily connected to your plant network and ready for use on valves with rising spindles. Using the Power Wrench saves time and money and helps prevent back strain, sore muscles and user fatigue. Even large valves can be operated in less than 10 minutes! As confirmed by many end users, the Power Wrench is an operator-friendly tool that allows for faster valve operation in production processes.
One portable valve actuator for multiple valves
The product introduction video shows that the Power Wrench makes use of drive plates that are bolted directly onto the valve’s hand wheel or gearbox. They keep the valve completely intact and are fitted to virtually all shapes and sizes of valve hand wheels. Drive plates can be installed permanently to multiple valves, maintaining manual operation.
The pneumatic service valve wrench for any environment
Using the Power Wrench, valves can be operated much faster than turning by hand. The Power Wrench can be used in any environment, on any multi-turn valve. To boost its portability even more, it can also be connected to a portable compressor for use in remote and urban areas. Many companies in the (petro)chemical, oil and gas, water and energy industries have enjoyed using this flexible tool.
