HOLLISTON, MA — A new blade holder for the Commander MILLHOG heavy-wall pipe beveling tool that includes a bore blade to create a more uniform I.D. and assure proper pipe end alignment is being introduced by ESCO Tool.
The ESCO Commander MILLHOG Pipe Beveling Tool machines heavy-wall, highly alloyed pipe from 3.75” I.D. to 14” O.D. including Super Duplex and P-91. Featuring an optional 3-blade holder, this tool can bevel, face, and bore simultaneously, assuring a uniform inside bore to create a tight weld that X-rays well and a smooth face and bevel for proper pipe end alignment.
Capable of performing any angle of end-prep including 37-1/2° and J-preps for orbital welding, the ESCO Commander MILLHOG Pipe Beveling Tool uses one mandrel and only seven sets of clamps for the entire range of the tool.
Available with pneumatic or hydraulic motors, the oversize clamps have six contact points to mount securely for chatter-free machining end preps.
