The problem:
In the refinery pictured at left, access to a valve was impossible from the catwalk.

Possible solutions?

  1. Relocate valve to a more convenient location
  2. Reengineer catwalk to allow access to valve
  3. Call Roto Hammer for a Custom Solution

Before
Relocating the valve was impossible, and creating a new catwalk was cost prohibitive. Our
customer opted to call Roto Hammer. He immediately spoke to one of our Custom Solution
Specialists, who was able to walk the customer through several options. Our final solution
was to engineer an extension control with gear box and hand wheel to bridge the distance
between the valve and the catwalk.

After
As you can see from the “before” and “after” pictures, the valve is now easily
accessible to an operator standing on the catwalk. While this solution was entirely
customized to the customer’s unique situation, the entire set up was built using
off-the-shelf parts.The finished product was shipped out to the customer within
72 hours of the order date, at a total cost of less than $2500.
