Smith Flow Control Launches Regulator Packs to Ensure Safe Operation of Valves

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Smith Flow Control has introduced a series of Filter Regulator Lube (FRL) packs to ensure the right amount of torque is set to the company’s Easi-Drive system. FRL packs manage the output available to drive the valve, preventing human error that can result in improper use of the system.

Easi-Drive is a valve operating system that actuates hard-to-operate valves in power plants, oil refineries and water and chemical processing facilities. It is ideal for use wherever there are manually operated valves with high-operating torques, hundreds of hand-wheel turns to open and close or are just difficult to operate.

FRL packs are designed in a range of colors so they can be identified and applied correctly to a range of valve systems. Packs can be factory-set on a second regulator to limit the pressure to the specially calibrated torque device, reducing the output available to drive the valve. This means that even though an operator can adjust the first regulator, the second will be set to a maximum pressure point that can never be surpassed.

The FRL packs have been adapted to include storage for the pneumatic gun, making it easy to carry the equipment and assemble the system on site.
