Valve Manipulation Tools

Rotary Docking Low Torque Tool

  • Product Number: ITE-0007-D-0530-00
  • The low torque tool develops up to 70 Nm (52 torque for actuation of ball and needle valves and clamps throughout a subsea production system.

    The tool consists of a hydraulic motor coupled, via a gear box, to a profiled socket suitable for T-bar or paddle actuation. Due to the low torque figures, no local torque reaction is required. Signals from a turns counter are relayed to a surface readout


    Low Torque Subsea Valve Manipulations

    • 6 Nm (4 to 70 Nm (52 torque output
    • Length of Tool is 460mm from end of the end effector to the back of the hoses.
    • 280 Nm (206 variant available (Shell Type)
    • Output speed upto 30 rpm @ 10 L/min (2.2 gpm)
    • ISO 13628-8 (API 17H) Figure 13 compatible interface, Type A, B and C
    • Gear unit in aluminium casing for corrosion & environmental protection
    • Different levels of torque can be manually pre-set, or alternatively, torque control achieved through closed loop system
    • Depth rating same as host ROV
    • TDU and/or manipulator deployment
