PowerfulHeavy duty drive chains provide a minimum of 10,000 hours of service.
VersatileDrive system uses a drive chain up to three sizes larger than the competition with a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of approximately 10,000 hours. This minimizes the risk of breakage and costly downtime on the job.
Five Planet Arms ensure no two discs are ever directly across from each other and carrying the entire workload. All of the discs are in contact with the work surface, eliminating the development of high and low spots on the valve seat.
The adhesive on the media discs is specifically formulated to provide a firm hold while in use, but are easy to remove after use.
High-quality abrasives can help reduce grinding time by up to 50%.
