Specifications include, but are not limited to:Articulating arm, automated valve operator utilizing patented intelligent automation to control torque, direction and turns. Twin arms (one telescoping) provide 13' [3.9 m] reach over 270 degrees of freedom while hydraulic disk brakes safely secure exerciser capable of 750 FtLb [1016 Nm] of torque. Constructed of 3" [76 mm] square steel tube and powder coated for long life. A light weight, telescoping valve key is also provided. Valve Machine Intelligent Automation Wachs valve exercisers utilize patented "no assumption" automation technology to safely and effectively turn valves using AWWA recommended procedures. This technology protects the operators by keeping "hands off" the machine while exercising the valve and protects the valve by not assuming size, direction or current position. Allowing the machine to follow the path of least resistance, the programming and sensors automatically stop the rotation and reverse in half turn increments as to flush calcification from valve gate. This patented automation always exercises valve at the minimum torque required to turn, then automatically lowers preset threshold once rotation begins so impact at end of valve travel is soft as possible
