Actuator provides safe, economical valve operation    The Easi-Drive portable valve actuator is said to securely and effectively operate valves in oil refineries, chemical processing facilities and power plants. It enables one operator to operate multiple valves with a single tool, while reducing fatigue and injury risk. The tool is especially effective on valves that require a high number of turns, or valves that are difficult to operate due to high torque or location. The lightweight, portable and adaptable Easi-Drive can be powered by air, electricity or battery. Its reaction device protects users from the “kick” normally associated with other torque tools.
