Pacific Tek Vehicle Mounted Valve Operators
The Pacific Tek product line includes their vehicle mounted valve operators and a line of transportable vacuum excavating units. Together, they are the core of an underground valve maintenance system.
The basis of Pacific Tek’s system, the ability to clean out valves, excavate lines, and to safely operate underground valves can be found in one compact unit that can be either truck or trailer mounted. Model options include the PT-8, PT-25 Valve Operator, and the PT-1000SH "Arm Valve Operator".
Eliminate potential lower back injuries and let the PT-8 turn your underground gate valves. Can be used alone with it’s lightweight, hydraulic power unit, Model PT-8 Kit, or as a helper to the truck mounted valve operator on valves located off the street. This versatile and lightweight tool let’s the operator stand still while it does the turning. Get accurate revolution counts on your valve operations. Use as part of an exercising program or to quickly effect valve shut-downs when they’re needed. The built-in torque adjustment let’s you start out low and work your way up to the torque required.
The PT-25 can operate underground gate valves from 6 in. to 60 in. diameter with an adjustable torque range from 0 to 1,250 ft. / lbs.. The torque control device insures that only enough torque to turn the valve is present which is more gentle on valve stems than normal manual operation. A built-in swivel head allows operation at up to 15° of misalignment and the power head extends up to 28 in. for easy setup. Revolution counters gives readouts of valve turns to 1/10th of a revolution and the torque setting can be easily checked while valve turning without valve strain.
Gauges include pressure, torque, oil temp., and oil filter condition and controls include torque, direction, speed, and auxiliary circuit. In addition the oil reservoir holds up to 19 gallons of hydraulic fluid with optional truck or trailer mounting available.
A track mounted valve exerciser for opening and closing underground valves. The PT-1000SH can operate underground valves from 4 in.- 60 in. diameter with adjustable torque range from 0 to 850 ft. / lbs.. It has an operational horizontal reach of up to 8’ and a swing radius of up to 270 degrees. The unit can be mounted in various configurations, stowing width-wise or length-wise on a custom Pacific Tek trailer, flatbed service vehicle or dedicated single axle trailer. This unit can be powered from a separate hydraulic unit or vehicle driven pump system.
