ESCO Boiler Tube Panel Saw Produces Clean, Straight Cuts

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) -  ESCO Tool has introduced an air powered saw and track system which attaches easily to water wall boiler tube sections to produce perfectly square cuts that require no further rework.

The MILLHOG® APS-438 Air Powered Saw and EscoTrack™ System lets an operator efficiently cut sections of water wall boiler tubes by allowing the leading edge of the blade to cut each pipe with ±1/8" accuracy. Easy to attach and align, the track fully supports this pneumatic saw which glides along smoothly and can produce a clean, straight 4-3/8" deep cut while reducing operator fatigue.

Eliminating the use of grinders and hand-held saws, the MILLHOG® APS-438 Air Powered Saw and EscoTrack™ System features a 3 HP pneumatic motor and uses 12" reinforced fiberglass abrasive blades that can cut stainless steel, Inconel®, ash pipe, and lined pipe. The saw requires 90 psi @80 cfm and the steel track comes in 5 ft. sections and attaches using weld tabs.

The MILLHOG® APS-438 Air Powered Saw and EscoTrack™ System are priced from $5,995.00 (list) and are available for rent in the continental U.S.A. Purchase and rental pricing quotations are available upon request.
