Stow Introduces New Remote Valve Control Flexible Shaft

Stow Manufacturing Co. has just put on the market a new s t a n d a r d 3/8-inch-size remote valve control flexible shaft, which is ideal for manually remotely controlling all types of small valves in sizes up to those with 2-inch-diameter handwheels. This new flexible shaft will transmit a maximum torque of 120 in./lbs.

in a radius of bend as small as 7 in., and it has a torsional deflection of only 42 degrees per foot of length when at maximum load. This 3/8-inch "V.C." flexible shaft can be put up to any length desired.

By using this flexible shaft, it allows valves in congested areas to be easily controlled from a safer more convenient location manually. It is often used on ships, in nuclear powerplants and industrial plants. This new 3/8- inch "V.C." flexible shaft is much safer than other means of remote operation as there are no exposed revolving parts, and because it is flexible it is very easy to install, even in areas with very complicated paths of transmission.

For more information on the new Stow standard 3/8-inch "V.C." flexible shaft, write to Thom Holland, Stow Manufacturing Co., 86 Bump Road, Binghamton, N.Y.
