An upgraded pipe beveler featuring pneumatic clamping with a new motor and gearing that produces low RPM and high torque to pull a thick chip without cutting fluids has been introduced by Esco Tool of Holliston, Mass.
The MILLHOG® Tube Weasel Air-Clamp Beveling Tool is a right angle I.D. clamping tool that fits easily between waterwall boiler tubes to perform precision bevels. Featuring a 1.1 HP motor and robust gearing that runs at 125 RPM with high torque to pull a thick chip without cutting fluids, it has a pneumatic clamp that reduces operator fatigue and speeds throughput.
Capable of improving cycle times by up to 600%, the MILLHOG Tube Weasel Air-Clamp Beveling Tool has a self-centering draw rod which rigidly mounts into a tube or pipe I.D. and retracts from the mandrel automatically after milling to minimize friction. Ideal for 0.75” I.D. to 3” O.D. pipes, it can be used in any orientation to perform highly repetitive welding end preps.
The MILLHOG Tube Weasel Air-Clamp Beveling Tool sells for $4,995.00 and is available for rent in the continental U.S.A.
