Valvetec Services expand the product range

16 September 2021

Valvetec Services Ltd is delighted to announce the company is expanding and now offer a range of MODEC Portable Valve Actuators and Drivers, through becoming a Strategic Partner of Essex based company, Total Lockout Ltd. 

Sharon Garrett, Valvetec Services Ltd. Managing Director, commented: “We are extremely excited to be working in partnership with Total Lockout and look forward to take our business to the next level with the addition of this range of Portable Valve Actuators and Drivers not only within the Oil/Gas sector but also other industries.”

She added, “There are a variety of valves used throughout industry which are not operated for long periods of time. Over time moving parts can deteriorate, lubrication dries up and corrosion may set in, making it can be extremely difficult to open valves. These Portable Valve Actuators generally improve downtime and safety.”

Tim Hughes, Managing Director, Total Lockout Ltd. remarked:

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Valvetec Services as our Strategic Partner for UK Offshore Markets. Their knowledge and experience in this sector bring mutual opportunities to expand our businesses with this innovative range of Portable Valve Actuators.

The manual task of operating valves has always been tiresome and has the potential to result in strain injuries for workers. This is made worse when the environment is challenging, especially on offshore installations. Portable actuators can speed up the task of operating difficult valves while minimising the risk of strain injury.
