Flange Facing Tool Refinishes Rather Than Replaces
An easy to use flange facing tool that fully reconditions damaged flanges rather than replacing them by cutting, beveling, and welding on new ones has been introduced by Esco tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.
The Esco FLANGEHOG 110® is an easy to setup and use manually operated hand tool that fully reconditions damaged raised- and flat-face flanges with a perfectly precise phonographic finish that meets ASME B16.5 standards. Capable of refinishing hard or soft materials, it features 0.005” alignment accuracy and eliminates the need to cut, bevel, and weld on new flanges.
Offered with two cross feeds for producing a smooth and stock finish on RF and FF gasket seats, the Esco FLANGEHOG 110® mounts to the flange I.D. in seconds with a clamping range of 0.9” to 10” and can rapidly machine flanges with a reach up to 14” O.D. Supplied with straight and 90 degree tool bit holders, it is ideal for OEM pump manufacturers and process piping repairs.
The Esco FLANGEHOG 110® is priced at $5,995.00 supplied as a complete kit with all necessary resurfacing components and is available for rent.
