HARD TO REACH VALVES -
Remote Valve operators "Reach Rods" are available
for the remote control of valves away from the valve site.
This Rigid and Flexible Reach Rods are designed to operate
valves from 3/4" to 16" in diameter.
- Reach Rods are
safe. After installation there will be no need to send personnel
into dangerous, unsafe areas. Valves located in these hazardous
or inaccessible areas can be controlled manually from a convenient,
safe distance. In an emergency, Reach Rods allow valves to
be closed or opened quickly and conveniently, again with no
danger to the operator.
Flexible Reach Rods are extremely cost efficient. They are
inexpensive to purchase and can be installed for a fraction
of the cost of their rigid counterparts because they require
no sophisticated, specialized installation equipment. Adaptors
are available for attachment to any size valve. Maintenance
is minimal and inexpensive.
AND EASE OF INSTALLATION
Reach Rods can be routed through limited space, inaccessible
or unsafe areas. They are ideal for extremely complicated
transmission routing paths.
Multiple bends are easily handled. Flexible
Reach Rods are quick and simple to install and can be installed
with standard hand tools. It's recommended that
all the Flexible Reach Rods be supported by a simple pipe
bracket every four running feet and before and after each
periodic inspection is all that is necessary. A quick visual
of the casing, ferrules or adapters along with an occasional
turning the valve handle to insure the valve works freely
is all that is needed.
working parts mean increased reliability. Flexible Reach Rods
have no geared joints, swivels, universal joints, gearboxes,
and hinged joints to wear, stick, rust or bind. And they are
far less prone to damage from shock, vibration or physical
abuse because the Flexible Reach Rod absorbs shock.
