An air-powered, portable pipe machining tool that combines high torque and low RPMs for beveling and facing super-alloyed tube and pipe has been introduced by Esco Too-1 of Holliston, Massachusetts.
The Esco Mini-MILLHOG is a compact, portable pneumatic I.D. clamping tube and pipe beveling tool with a working weight of 27.5 lbs. that squares itself when mounting and provides high torque with low RPM. Featuring smooth chatter-free operation, this tool is capable of any angle of prep and produces a clean continuous chip without using cutting oils or fluids.
Ideal for beveling highly alloyed stainless steel, heavy wall pipe, and removing tube weld overlay and membrane cladding, the Esco Mini-MILLHOG is designed for tube and pipe from 1.25 I.D. to 6.625″ O.D. with one mandrel covering the majority of the range. It has a rugged spur gear drive train and all clamping components including the gear rod are heat treated.
The Esco Mini-MILLHOG I.D. Clamping End Prep Tool is available for sale and rent.
