Our Christchurch office has acquired a truck mounted machine to exercise valves.
Whilst this equipment is extremely specialised and sophisticated, the machine itself is incredibly easy to operate.
The machine can apply a maximum torque of around 1000 N-m and will figure out which way it needs to turn, to open and close the valve.
When the job is complete, the machine generates a full report on the procedure including GPS positioning, torque applied, number of turns to open /close, state of the valve on arrival and state on the valve on departure.
If you’d like to find out more about how our valve exercising truck can help you in New Zealand, please contact us.
(n.b. we also have valve exercising trucks available in Australia)
