The Uniflex system is the most versatile, reliable and proven approach to remote mechanical valve actuation available today.
It features a 5/8”(16mm) diameter, high-tensile, stainless steel, flexible shaft which is standard in the geared system. The flexible shaft is driven by a geared operator which transmits power to a reduction gear box at the valve. The system can be configured using a range of gear ratios allowing smooth operation in even the longest and most complex installations. A flexible shaft designed for rotary power transmission is ideally suited to remote and safe actuation of valves.
