WHY DIRECT DRIVE?

THE HIGHEST SAFETY STANDARD

Chain driven valves carry open chain guards allowing hands, clothing, shoelaces, debris, etc to access moving chains, shafts, and sprockets. 

Those chains and sprockets require a lubricant too that must be applied from under the open chain guard, dangerously requiring hands and fingers close to moving parts at an unsafe & unstable angle.

With unfinished, jagged, & sharp metal edges (at an exact point where hands/fingers are required to work no less) and a required mounting table which increases materials, and therefore the valves, costs and maintenance issues, chain driven valves hold immediate safety hazards and higher costs.

Speaking of higher costs, they require you to store sprockets, chains, repair parts & tools, additional lubricants and more on hand. These all inflate and eat into your maintenance & inventory budget and ultimately, your bottom line. 

BREAK THE CHAIN!

*see what we did there ;)

Without extensive access to moving parts like chain driven valves have, Direct Drives eliminate possible hazard points and lowers the possibilities of injury during operation & maintenance.

With a direct drive, there is ZERO need for additional sprockets, chains, repair parts, and...well, you get the point.

There's no need to diminish your maintenance & inventory budget and keeps the costs from job site accidents out of the equation, ultimately, increasing your profits.
