PIPE-MAX Pipe Belt Grinder

Combination grinder and pipe belt sander/polisher. Electric or pneumatic.

The PIPE-MAX is a combination grinder and pipe belt sander. The front hard rubber contact roller drives the abrasive belt to grind flat surfaces. It removes weld seams in a straight line, without leaving edges or a wavy finish.

For sanding pipes or handrails, it is a flexible tool. The sanding belt follows every contour to grind and polish up to a high-gloss finish. The belt wraps around the pipe and requires only a few steps to polish the entire circumference. It is ideal for stainless steel, aluminum and high-quality metals.

  • For sanding pipes from small to large diameter, up to 14"
  • Grinds weld seams on flat surfaces – leaves no edges
  • Powerful 14.5 Amp motor and variable-speed control from 950 to 3500 RPM
  • Quick and easy changing of sanding belts
  • Ideal for stainless steel and aluminum

PIPE-MAX Electric Pipe Belt Grinder

Weld Seam Grinder and Pipe Sander
Follow the external contour of the pipe diameter

You can follow the external contour of the pipe diameter with light, uniform contact pressure. The new contour concept with the elastic return roller allows the grinding and polishing belts to conform around the external diameter of the pipes without great force.

Comfortable longitudinal grinding of flat surfaces with PIPE-MAX

The soft grinding roller made of PUR material also allows comfortable longitudinal grinding of flat surfaces, for example to remove spot welds or eliminate deep scratches.

Gas pressure cylinder Additional handle for comfortable, overhead working Drive roller with nonslip rubber rings
1. Gas pressure cylinder allows belt to conform to contour of pipe with proper pressure. 2. Additional handle for comfortable, overhead working. 3. The drive roller with the rubber rings ensures that the grinding belts will not slip.
