Please note: If you wish to use a DDS / DDT drive for anchoring, an Energy Control Valve (ECV) must be fitted for the warranty to be valid.
This revolutionary bypass valve is fitted to the drive to control
WHY YOU NEED ECV
When the anchor reaches desired torque or depth the operator stops the drive unit, at this stage the anchor has built up a rotational energy (somewhat like a rubber band on a wind-up model plane). This energy that is stored in the anchor needs to be released before the drive unit is disconnected. The ECV bypasses the stored energy allowing the anchor to “unwind” in a controlled manner. Without this valve, the pressure contained when holding the pile in place would be forced up the pile and into the drive unit resulting in potential damage & costly repairs for the motor and gearbox.
