    Gate, Globe, Ball, Butterfly, Plug, Triple Offset, Check, Stop-Check, Angle-Check, Sluice Gates, Weir Gates, Multi-turn Damper Drives
  • Torque/Thrust
    Multi-turn torque: up to 21,693 Nm (16,000 ft lbs)
    Quarter-turn torque: up to 370,000 Nm (273,000 ft lbs)
    Linear force up to 2,224 KN (500,000 lbs)


  • Fits broad range of quarter-turn and multi-turn applications - wide range of frame sizes, horsepower ratings, and output speeds
  • Easy maintenance - M2CP control package can be removed, assembled, disassembled, and replaced using only a standard screwdriver
  • Motor options include most voltages of single-phase or three-phase alternating current and direct current
  • Meets US DOD Navy StandardsDOD-V-24657(SH) high shock and (MIL-STD-167-1, MIL-STD-901D) mechanical vibrations of shipboard equipment
  • Power shift clutch requires minimal force to operate even when valve is tightly seated; Clutch handle can be padlocked in either hand or motor position to prevent unauthorized use; Handwheel shaft is supported by bearings and splined at both ends to eliminate keys
  • Motors employ a minimum number of mounting configurations to maximize interchangeability. The motor and spur gear set form a modular unit that is mounted with only eight accessible fasteners. Features a wide range of motor-reduction spur gear selections offer multiple speed and torque output combinations
  • Thermal overload protection; Thermal contacts sense winding temperature and break the control circuit before damage occurs; Standard motors, supplied with thermal overload protection may be disabled for emergency shutdown installations
  • Includes an auxiliary clutch handle for emergency use. The clutch operates on the low torque side of the worm and worm gear drive train, and requires minimal force to operate. The valve, gate or damper is never disconnected from the self-locking worm gear
  • Incorporates a heat-treated alloy steel worm, as well as a cast-bronze worm gear drive sleeve, supported by tapered roller bearings to maximize thrust load support
