Portable Valve Grinding Machines

The Larslap range of portable industrial valve grinders offered by Kemet are a patented design concept that are a proven solution for on-site valve reconditioning.

Repairing leaking valves in industrial pipelines is a laborious operation involving extended downtime, production losses and substantial unwanted costs. Losses are minimized if valves can be reground in situ, precluding the need to dismantle and remove defective valves from the pipeline. Available in overlapping sizes, these grinders combine unsurpassed versatility with exceptional ease of handling and operation. A combination guaranteed to give these grinders cutting edge performance, whatever the valve location.

These valve grinding machines have unique, lightweight universal clamping system which allows rapid and accurate mounting for grinding valve seats or wedges. Operating checks and replacement of abrasive discs can be carried out without disturbing the assembly. No realignment is necessary when repositioning the grinding head.
