Handheld Valve Exercisers
Turning valves and valve handwheels is an vital task in maintaining water infrastructure. An organization can have hundreds or even thousands of valves that must be controlled, or in some industries “exercised”, the process of running a valve through its full cycle to prevent sticking or freezing caused by factors such as tuberculation.
