HOLLISTON, MA — A pipe beveling tool which has been upgraded with three blades that work together to rapidly provide compound bevels on highly alloyed, heavy-wall pipe is being introduced by Esco Tool.
The MILLHOG Dictator Pipe Machining Tool securely mounts to the inside diameter of heavy-wall pipe from 4.5” to 18” I.D. using three wide clamps with hardened steel contact points. Featuring a 3-blade tool holder and formed TiN coated blades that dissipate heat away from the pipe’s surface, it can perform a 37-1/2 x 10 degree bevel or any other angle simultaneously.
Capable of precision machining end preps that permit high integrity welds and faster weld times, the MILLHOG Dictator Pipe Machining Tool develops 4,100 ft.-lbs. of torque at the cutter blade and pulls a continuous thick chip without cutting oils. Ideally suited for stainless steel and super duplex piping systems, this beveler has an easy-to-maintain 3 HP air motor.
