About Roto Hammer
Over half a century ago, a pipe and fitting specialist noticed that too many field workers were sustaining injuries while trying to force open stubborn valves in hard-to-reach areas. His innovative solution was a chain wheel that he called the “Roto Hammer”, a product which harnessed the principle of a hammer striking an anvil to safely open and close stuck or frozen valves in a manner that protected the operator from injury.
Roto Hammer Industries opened for business in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1959. More than fifty years and several additions later, Roto Hammer remains in the same location and continues to offer the very best in solutions for hard to reach and difficult to operate valves.
