Torque reaction management system

To guarantee operator safety and comfort, it’s essential to use a torque reaction management system. Several types of system are available for use in different situations. Each is compatible with the whole range of actuators and adaptors because of their identical flange.

 

Single and double reaction arm

Our actuators are supplied with a torque reaction arm which enables the torque to be controlled by a strap attached to the end of the bar and to a fixed point in the working environment. In this way, the operator is not exposed to the torque reaction, in particular at the end of the process.

Reaction arm fixed to vehicle trailer

This telescopic metal bar can be easily positioned between a vehicle’s trailer hatch and the actuator. Ideal for valves buried beneath roads, or for any valve which has an upward facing handwheel.

Foot held reaction arm

You don’t need to attach this torque reaction system to anything – By simply standing on the reaction arm, the operator doesn’t need to carry the torque reaction with his arms, his own weight does the job!

Stand for underground / buried valves

Designed for underground water distribution system valves, this stand makes the actuator easy and safe to use with a telescopic. Light and pliable, it’s simple to transport with the two wheels, takes up minimal space and can be erected in a couple of minutes using just a few knurled screws.

Once in place, the stand – not the operator – bears the load of both the torque and the weight of the actuator. It’s the perfect tool for water distribution system operators.

Telescopic bipod

The bipod is light, small, easy to use and practical. It’s adapted for use in a wide variety of situations. With its two telescopic legs and a flange that can be placed in any position, it redirects the torque without any difficulty into the ground, a wall or any other fixed point.

Custom made reaction system

These flanges are designed to be used with a specific valve or system. Before using it, you need to equip the valve with a fixed system on to which the actuator can be placed. Some of them therefore require some preliminary design but thereafter the flange is perfectly adapted to both the system and application.

This flange is particularly useful for valves and systems that do not have a handwheel and need activating regularly. These flanges are made to order by our technical department based on the specific characteristics of your system.
