Since Bi-Torq’s inception in 1995, their operations have significantly increased. While their main focus was originally on customized mounting kits, Bi-Torq shifted to answer customers’ need for options to complete their valve automation packages. The Bi-Torq rack and pinion pneumatic actuator was the first product introduced in 1995, followed shortly after by the InstruPak, a direct mount automated valve package that includes brass, stainless steel, carbon steel, and thermoplastic ball valves. Since then, Bi-Torq has expanded its products to include cost-effective butterfly valves, electric actuators, limit switches, proximity sensors, positioners, fusible link assemblies, and gear operators. Along with the products from their parent company, Bi-Torq can offer a complete package to meet your valve automation needs.
