A flange-facing tool that creates a precise phonographic finish which meets ASME B16.5 standards and eliminates the need to cut and replace piping flanges has been introduced by Esco Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.
The Esco FLANGE HOG® 110 is a simple to use manually operated hand tool that lets users make process piping flange repairs virtually anywhere and eliminates the need to cut, bevel, and weld on new flanges.

Providing 0.005” alignment accuracy, the Esco FLANGE HOG® 110 requires minimal operator training and comes as a complete kit.
