Horizontal or vertical grinding

With this valve grinder you have the option to grind globe valves (model FL-B), gate valves and wedges (FL-C) or both (FL-BC). The valve grinder is easily set up for wedge grinding using the existing clamping system

All valve grinders are designed for operational compatibility. They can be run from bench-mountings and driven by pneumatic or electric powered motors. Equipment purchased initially for relatively small diameter ranges can be conveniently upgraded to deal with larger ranges at a later date. This unique degree of flexibility means that grinders can be readily adapted to suit a wide variety of customer needs.
