Heavy Wall End Prep Tool Stands up to Offshore Requirements
A new I.D. clamping welding end prep tool that is designed for the rigorous service requirements of offshore facilities where piping and weld quality are critical has been introduced by ESCO Tool of Medfield, Massachusetts.
The MILLHOG® Dictator I.D. Clamping Welding End Prep Tool is designed for "dry cutting" stainless steel, duplex, and other hard pipe up to 20" O.D. found in offshore facilities. Featuring a tapered roller bearing drive mechanism and the EscoLock blade lock system for rigidity, this end prep tool develops 4,000 ft.-lbs. of torque at the cutter blade and pulls a continuous thick chip without cutting lubricants.
Simple to operate, the MILLHOG® Dictator I.D. Clamping Welding End Prep Tool has a self-centering mandrel, uses only eight sets of clamps for the full working range of the tool, and is available either pneumatically powered or in a hydraulic version that adapts to most hydraulic power packs. The cutter blades are TiN coated and dissipate heat away from the pipe.
The MILLHOG® Dictator I.D. Clamping Welding End Prep Tool is priced at $18,995.00 and can be rented from $750.00 per week, depending upon location. Literature and quotations are available on request.
