PITTSBURGH, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Two inventors from Trinidad have developed the FLANGE CHEK PRO, a runout inspection tool for industrial pipe flanges. A prototype is available, and there is a patent pending.
"Standard flange facing tools are very expensive, heavy, bulky and cumbersome to use. The tool we invented is inexpensive, lightweight and more advanced. It also requires less manual labor than standard tools," said the inventors.
The FLANGE CHEK PRO provides a means of determining the condition of large flanges to decide whether facing is required. It eliminates the need to automatically deploy a flange re-facing machine for each flanged connection. This tool represents a fraction of the weight in contrast to that of standard flange facing machines. Its lightweight and portable design allows it to be installed by two people.
The original design was submitted to the Toronto office of InventHelp. It is currently patent pending and available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
