Reduce manual valve operating time and improve efficiency with Sofis Power Wrench 

Man using a power wrench

Manual valve operations  are a necessary but time-consuming part of any oil and gas, mining and industrial operation.

Operators are often looking for ways to create efficiencies and reduce manual effort in their day-to-day operations, and shutdown and maintenance tasks.

For some companies, these operational challenges are being exacerbated by Covid-impacted labour shortages or working with skeleton teams.

The Sofis’ Power Wrench can help.

How it works

The Power Wrench portable actuator is a pneumatic tool that helps with the operation of high- torque, high-turn valves.

It reduces valve operating time by up to 80% and improves efficiency when operating manual valves.

Easy to install

As the Power Wrench is connected to the valve by a universal drive plate, you simply install the drive plate with u-bolts, connect the Power Wrench portable actuator to an air supply and you are ready to go.

Limiting the time spent operating manual valves, the Power Wrench portable actuator helps your team work more efficiently during plant operations, shutdowns and maintenance.

Safe operation

You are in complete control over the applied force and various safety measures protect you during operation. The throttle allows for a controlled build-up of torque and speed and the safety lever and throttle valve enforce ‘two-hands operation’.

Its key features and functions include:

  • Operational safety – complete control over the applied force as well as various safety measures to protect you during operation
  • Control – the throttle enables a controlled build-up of torque and speed, and the safety lever and throttle valve enforce ‘2-hands operation’
  • Reduce injuries – minimise strain or injury from operating high-torque valves
  • Ex certified – ready for use in Zone 1 classified areas
