Factory-Installed Safety Cable
The Roto Wheel combines two critical components for safe and dependable suspended valve operation: our Roto Hammer Chain Wheel complete with the addition of a fitted, factory installed retaining cable safety kit (RCK).
Simplify the ordering and installation process by purchasing a Roto Wheel (which combines our Chain Wheels with the popular RCK safety kits) or buy the Chain Wheel and RCK separately and install in the field.
The Roto Wheel is available in all Roto Hammer Chain Wheel Models (C, CL, E, and M Series).
Provisions must be made to prevent the HANDWHEEL RETAINING NUT FROM BACKING OFF whenever a chain wheel is installed. To insure safe operations, Roto Hammer recommends that thorough inspection of all chain operated valves be performed as a routine part of the user’s Safety/Maintenance Schedule. Set screws and other threaded fasteners MUST be secure and tight.
In addition, it is strongly recommended that an appropriately sized Roto Hammer RCK Safety Cable Kit (optional) be installed on every overhead chain wheel operated valve.
