Smith Flow Control Drives Efficiency with Valve Accessories at AWWA Show
Remote operators and actuators for water/ wastewater suppliers, utilities and OEM equipment suppliers
Smith Flow Control, manufacturer of valve operators and safety interlock systems, will showcase its Flexi-Drive remote cable driven valve operating system at the American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) ACE 08 Annual Conference and Exposition June 8-12 in Atlanta, Ga.
The Flexi-Drive is a cable-driven remote operator for valves in inaccessible or hard to reach locations. It can operate valves as far as 200 feet away, accommodating 540 degrees of bends in the cable run. The flexible cable system can be passed around and through walls, bulkheads, floors and any other obstacles to reach the host valve.
In addition to the Flexi-Drive, Smith Flow Control will feature its Easi-Drive and valve interlock systems. The Easi-Drive is a fully portable valve operating system for use in applications where valve size, pressure rating or work environmental conditions would normally require a permanent dedicated actuator or work crew. Smith Flow Control’s valve interlock systems eliminate human error from process, pipeline and maintenance operations.
A demonstration of these Smith Flow Control products will be available at the company’s booth, 2817.
