The EZE Turn Portable Valve Actuator is a revolutionary
tool designed for assisting plant operations personnel. It
allows industrial operators to perform their duties in a safe
The manual operation of valves is a common cause of
worker injury, especially where there are old valves that
require excessive amounts of force to operate. Many valves
can have 300 to 400 turns from open to close. Extreme force
coupled with repetitive motion can cause:
- Strained Backs
- Sore Muscles
- Pinched Nerves
- Dislocated Joints
- Ruptured Disks
- Heat Stroke
- Broken Bones
The EZE Turn PVA can be used on any multi-turn valve
independent of type or size. Specifically, valves that are large
and require a tremendous amount of force to operate manually
can now be operated rapidly, reliably and safely. The
speed of operation of any valve can be selected without constraint
of space or the limitations associated with the number
of workers that can stand around to operate a handwheel.
The Portable Valve Actuator is ready for use after installing
a universal drive plate onto
your existing valve’s handwheel.
This plate is specifically
designed to work with
the PVA. It installs easily to
the spokes of the handwheel
with two U-Bolts.
Now simply supply the
actuator with clean lubricated
air and you’re ready to
turn your valve.
The actuator’s trigger
(located midway on the actuator) and speed control (located
at the air inlet) are both spring return fail closed. Both must be
engaged for the actuator to turn. Releasing either the trigger
or speed control during operation will stop the actuator. The
speed control allows the operator to move the valve at their
own comfort level. The forward and reverse switch is located
directly opposite from the trigger. Forward turns the actuator
in the clockwise direction, and reverse turns the actuator in
the counter-clockwise direction.
The EZE Turn PVA is pneumatic, so there is no concern of
electrical shock or operating in explosive atmospheres.
