Giving Valves a Workout

Manual valve exercising is a time-consuming process, and one that poses risks of injury to employees and damage to valves. Valve-exercising technology is designed to automate the process, so that employees do not subject themselves to the strain of turning large or stuck valves, and so that only appropriate levels of torque are applied to valves. Automation
has the added advantage of enabling easy collection of data for upload to GIS or asset management software in the office.
E.H. Wachs offers the VMT-1 valve maintenance trailer as a platform for transporting all valve maintenance and vacuum tools needed in the field. The City of Oconomowoc, Wis., a community of about 14,000 located 30 minutes west of Milwaukee, recently purchased a unit for its water department.
