This machine grinds the scale from the seat and disk of alumina industry valves to establish a seal.
- Automatic operation on Lunkenheimer valves
- Proven performance in 1/10th the time of manual grinding
- Delivers predictable, low leakage isolation
- Fits existing valves without modifications
- Self-contained, self-powered diesel hydraulic
- Eliminates heavy manual efforts and sledge-hammer work
The hydraulic model was developed for the largest Lukenheimer style valves and delivers extremely high torque grinding for quick isolation. They feature automatic rotation and a hydraulic locking clutch for advancement of the disk. The system is also mounted to a maneuverable trolley for valve access.
