EFCO can offer you the most up-to-date and advanced technical solutions for valves, repair and production. It is their aim to offer you unique products, support and service.
Portable grinding and lapping machines
Flat sealing faces guarantee perfect valve seals. If this area is damaged, the repair is quick and uncomplicated with the EFCO grinding and lapping machines which can be used on site. Thanks to this portable technology it is not necessary to remove the valve from the plant which contributes to an effective reduction in maintenance costs and thus the costs of outages.

Portable turning machines
Due to the constantly rising pressure on the costs of industrial maintenance, the demands made on the machines and tools required also increase. It is frequently difficult or even impossible to dismantle sealing faces, flanges and bores on valves, heat exchangers, boilers etc. for remachining in a workshop. The portable EFCO turning machines have been developed specifically for this application. They can be used almost everywhere and in every installation position.
Portable facing machines for flanges (TDF)
When seals are replaced, it is frequently unavoidable that the sealing faces themselves have to be remachined due to damage from heat or aggressive media. EFCO portable flange facing machines with external clamping are suitable for this type of work in pipelines, on large valves, pumps, chemical plant, turbine housings, heat exchangers etc. Simple installation, low weight and flat design of the machines make use of these machines possible on site in almost any position. The required roughness of the sealing faces can be obtained due to variable feeds during machining. Inclined faces can be machined using additional tools.
Work range: DN 0 – 3200 mm (0" – 126") Power supply: electric 230/110 V, 50/60 Hz or pneumatic 6-7 bar
