Smith Flow Control’s TorkDrive prevents manual valves from being damaged due to excessive torque application during valve operation. It can be customized to suit most manufacturer’s handwheel operated valves where valves require a torque monitoring of over 59 ft/lb. The device is set to a predetermined maximum torque and if, during the operation of the valve, the operating torque increases above the pre-set limit, the TorkDrive will slip, indicating an irregular valve condition. Following over-torque, the TorkDrive unit will automatically reset to the predetermined torque. TorkDrive is a customizable add-on tool that minimizes the risk of plant/process shutdown and unnecessary repair costs through valve over-torque.
