HOLLISTON, MA — A new blade holder for the Prepzilla MILLHOG pipe beveling tool that permits beveling, facing, and boring simultaneously to assure high weld quality is being introduced by ESCO Tool.
The Prepzilla MILLHOG I.D. Clamping pipe beveling tool machines pipes from 1.5” I.D. to 8.625” O.D. using only eight sets of clamps and one mandrel. Featuring a new, rigid three-blade holder designed to bevel, face, and bore in one operation, this end prep tool assures there is a smooth transfer when matching two different pipe schedules for optimum weld quality.
Suitable for highly alloyed materials, the Prepzilla MILLHOG I.D. Clamping pipe beveling tool can produce end preps at any angle without cutting oils. It has robust construction with dual-opposed tapered roller bearings, direct drive gears, a rigid blade lock system, and TiN coated T-15 tool steel cutter blades. Air- and electric-powered models are available.
