VLVHYD/PNU/EL-A Valve, Hydraulic/Pneumatic/Electric - Annual

Application:                                                Man Hours 1.5

This applies to those valves that are equipped with electric or pneumatic motors
or hydraulic drivers.  The primary difference between these and other valves is
the use of motors to drive them open or closed.  They are applied wherever
automatic or remote operation is essential.  Motor operated valves use
diaphragms, bellows, or small electric modulating motors to operate the valve,
whereas the Hydraulic/Pneumatic/Electric valves use electric motors and gear box,
air turbines, or hydraulic pistons.

Special Instructions:

1.  Schedule an outage with operating personnel if required.
2.  Secure, tag, and lock out associated electric circuits,
    pneumatic or hydraulic lines before servicing motor, gear box, or piston.
