Remote valve operation with Flexi-Drive

New from Smith Flow Control is the Flexi-Drive, a versatile device for the remote operation of valves in hard to reach or hazardous locations. Developed in association with the United States Navy for operating valves in inaccessible areas of ships’ hulls, the Flexi-Drive is ideal for virtually any type of industry where valves are in use. Easy to operate, it can be used in all weather conditions and is even suitable for underwater applications. It consists of three elements: an operator station (comprising a geared handwheel and mounting facility), a valve station and a unique, patented cable linkage system. Due to the properties of the helically wound steel cable, turning the handwheel of the operator station simultaneously operates the valve station.
