CS Unitec's Pipe-Max weld seam grinder/pipe sander helps render weld seams invisible and can produce satin to mirror finishes on stainless steel, aluminum, and high-quality metal pipe and handrails.
With a 14.5-amp, variable-speed (950 to 3,500 RPM) electric motor that provides high torque, the 11.25-lb. tool deburrs, grinds, and polishes closed and open pipe constructions from 0.375 to 14 in. in diameter. Constant sanding belt speed adjustment, from 33 to 100 FPS, and a continuous belt-tightening adjustment accommodate pipe material.
A gas pressure cylinder system allows uniform grinding and helps simplify pipe adjustments. The soft, elastic return roller allows the unit to adapt to pipe contours. Flat surfaces can be ground to remove spot welds and deep scratches, leaving no edges. The drive roller has replaceable rubber rings to help keep the grinding belts from slipping.
