Esco Tool has introduced a portable pipe bevelling tool that lets one person perform welding end preps on large pipe used for oil and gas pipelines and process steam lines to help produce precision welds.
About the tool
The Terminator MILLHOG(R) Pipe Bevelling Tool features an adjustable tool holder that indexes and locks for easy setup and has a dual spring safety hanger which facilitates alignment on pipe from 8-5/8 in. inner dia. up to 36 in. outer dia. Allowing one person to setup, align, and machine large pipe ends, this pipe machining tool can bevel, face, and bore simultaneously to create precision end preps that are the foundation for producing precision welds.
Easy to manoeuvre, the Terminator MILLHOG Pipe Bevelling Tool rigidly clamps to the inner diameter and has a tracker to compensate for variations in wall thickness and a precision feed control to advance into the pipe. Equipped with user-selectable formed TiN coated tool bits, it comes with a five HP pneumatic motor or an optional hydraulic motor and does not require cutting fluids.
The Terminator MILLHOG Pipe Bevelling Tool is priced from US$47 995 and is available for rent in the US.
