Ridge Tool Company Extends Family of Roll Groovers to Include New RIDGID® 920 Roll Groover with Capacity for UP to 24" Pipe Diameter
ELYRIA, OH - September 2002 - Ridge Tool Company has recently added the RIDGID® 920 roll groover to its family of roll grooving equipment. The Model 920 has a capacity range of 2" to 24" diameter pipe, the largest of any non-stationary groover.
The portable 920 roll groover mounts to the RIDGID 300 power drive for use in the field or the shop. Detachable transporter wheels enable one person to easily maneuver the Model 920 around a job site. Support legs are adjustable to enable the groover to be leveled on uneven ground. The operating handle on the front of the Model 920 swivels to the position most comfortable for the operator, and conveniently folds out of the way for transporting and storage.
The 920 roll groover features front roll set change-out for minimum set-up time, and a patented depth setting gauge that assures accurate grooving. The groover's built-in pressure gauge enables the operator to monitor the hydraulic pressure to control flare and optimize groove time.
Other features of the 920 roll groover include self-adjusting, protective guards that automatically adjust as the pump is actuated and a relief valve to protect the equipment from over-pumping and control the pipe's flare.
The new RIDGID 920 grooves pipe up to 24" Schedule 10 (.250); up to 16" standard wall (.375) for steel pipe; and 2" to 8" for copper tubing. Ridge Tool also offers its RIDGID® RJ-624 large diameter jackstand that supports pipe up to 24" in diameter and is rated for loads up to 4,500 lbs. The RJ-624 is ideal for large diameter grooving or welding applications.
The RIDGID® 920 roll groover and RJ-624 pipe support stand are backed by a lifetime warranty from the Ridge Tool Company.
