Kravitch Plug Valve Maintenance Tools
Repairs to the Plug Valve through the valve box without digging.
Kravitch Machine Company has developed the patented Plug Valve Maintenance Tooling (PVMT) system which is used to perform various repairs including changing an old Giant Button Head Fitting on the Plug Valve without digging. Our tools are designed to work inside the Plug Valve Box.
How do Kravitch Plug Valve Maintenance Tools Work?
Kravitch Plug Valve Maintenance Tools are long-handled tools that are used to reach into a small hole to perform various repair functions. Our tools consist of a long reach tool called a Pike. On top of the Pike are quick-disconnect Operators which are used to drive the Pike. They transmit torsional, axial, and impact force to the Pike which in turn transmits torsional, axial, and impact force to the Adapters on the bottom of the Pike. The quick-disconnect Adapters on the bottom of the Pike are used to perform the work on the plug valve. The quick-disconnect system allows tools to be quickly and easily interchanged. This is more cost effective since you only purchase the tools that you need. The operators and adapters can be easily stored in a tool box.
See our Plug Valve Maintenance Tool Catalog for various Pikes, Operators, Adapters, and Hardware.
Take a look at our Plug Valve Maintenance Catalog Procedure Pages for a closer look how the tools perform the work. We are developing new tools on a regular basis. If you do not see a tool you are looking for or are unsure if the tools listed will perform the function you need, please contact us.
