Smith Flow Control Making Waves at WEFTEC 2008
Flexi-Drive and Easi-Drive valve operators among featured products
Erlanger, KY (August 13, 2008) – To showcase the latest in valve drive systems for wastewater engineers and operators, Smith Flow Control (SFC) is exhibiting at the Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) in Chicago, IL from October 19-22. At SFC’s booth, 30188, attendees will be able to see demonstrations of the Flexi-Drive and Easi-Drive valve drive systems.
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 valve operator. 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.
