ESCO Fin MILLHOG® Removal Tool's New Feed Assures Fast Operation

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2015) - ESCO Tool has introduced a patented portable tube fin removal tool that features a new aggressive rack-and-pinion feed mechanism and side ratchet to rapidly peel back HRSG tubes.

The Fin MILLHOG® Tube fin Removal Tool is an I.D. clamping, self-centering pneumatic tool featuring a proprietary blade that cleanly separates the fin from the tube. Upgraded with a new robust rack and pinion feed with easy to operate side ratcheting, this tool is capable of peeling back a 4" (101mm) fin from a tube O.D. in less than two minutes.

Available for left- or right-hand spirally wound fins, the Fin MILLHOG® Tube fin Removal Tool mounts rigidly and has no torque reaction to the operator. Equipped with a 1.25HP pneumatic motor, the range of the tool is 1.25" I.D. to 3.0" O.D. and it can be used in any orientation to permit rapid inspec-tion and X-ray of the weld and eliminate the need for chippers or grinders.

The Fin MILLHOG® Tube fin Removal Tool sells for $5,495.00 and is available for rent. Complete pricing and availability is provided upon request.
