All Roto Hammer® Chain Wheels are primed in the trademark Roto Hammer blue color. However, we understand that some customers prefer a custom color to match their facilities. In these situations, we are happy to custom paint any of our chain wheels to match a customer specified color. Please contact us for information on pricing and lead time for custom painted wheels.
- Whenever a chain wheel is installed, provision must be made to keep the VALVE HAND WHEEL RETAINING NUT FROM BACKING OFF THE STEM! This is best done by installing a SET SCREW that secures the nut to the stem.
- All chain wheel installations, regardless of age, must be regularly inspected as part of the user’s Safety/ Maintenance procedures. Set screws and other threaded fasteners MUST be secure and tight.
- As an additional safeguard, Roto Hammer strongly recommends that ALL chain wheels be fitted with an appropriately sized ROTO HAMMER RETAINING CABLE SAFETY KIT available from your local distributor or Roto Hammer Industries.
- Maintain Handwheel and Operator – Retention of the chain wheel operator on valve stem is dependent on the handwheel remaining on the valve stem. The handwheel retaining nut MUST be secured with a set screw.
