Press release date: May 6, 2009
An O.D. clamping welding end prep tool for heavy-wall small I.D. tubes with a high percentage of chrome that are found on steam headers and water wall boilers is has been introduced by ESCO Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.
The Esco C-HOG MILLHOG® O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool is up to three times faster than I.D. clamping welding end prep tools for beveling, facing, and boring highly alloyed small bore heavy-wall steam header tubes. Featuring a large solid clamp with easy to change blocks for gripping ½" to 2-½" tubes, it rigidly mounts to the outside of the tubes and sets up quickly.
Equipped with an attached wrench providing over 1" of stroke with a ratchet feed, the Esco C-HOG MILLHOG® O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool's rigid clamping design minimizes chatter and vibration which lets the cutter blades prep quickly without using fluids. This lightweight tool is ideal for beveling and boring small I.D. tubes where there is unobstructed access to the I.D.
The Esco C-HOG MILLHOG® O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool sells for $3,395.00 and is available for rent in the continental U.S.A. for $189.00 weekly.
