Metering, control system
The OCV ValveMeter Ultra is a stand-alone, electronic flow metering and control system. Based upon the variables of valve differential pressure and valve position, the system automatically calculates and displays the flow rate and signals the solenoids on the control valve to control the flow rate at a given set point. There is no need for a separate flow meter in the line. The system features a user-friendly touch screen and displays user-selectable flow units. It is available on all OCV valves, sizes 4"-24".

Valve exercising system
The E.H. Wachs ERV-750 valve turning system can be mounted on a trailer or on a truck using a front mount, side mount, back bumper mount or slide out bed mount. The system allows a single operator to reach any valve and turn it, even in extremely high torque situations. It is fully automated and intelligent so the proper amount of torque is always applied. Because of the company’s patented automation technology, valve breakage has been virtually eliminated – providing automatic shutdown when torque limits are reached.
