ESCO Portable End Prep Tool Speeds On-Site Pipeline Construction

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) -  ESCO Tool has introduced a portable welding end prep tool that is designed for dry-cut beveling heavy-wall pipe and eliminating the time and inconsistencies associated with hand grinding.

The MILLLHOG® Dictator I.D. Clamping Welding End Prep Tool features extra wide clamps for rigidly mounting inside the pipe and incorporates hardened steel contact points for added durability. Simple to operate, this portable end prep tool produces a clean, consistent thick chip without cutting oils and eliminates the need for hand grinding or using complex clamshell tools.

Suitable for prepping 4-1/2" I.D. to 18" O.D. pipe, the MILLLHOG® Dictator I.D. Clamping Welding End Prep Tool is available with a wide variety of formed tool blades to produce compound end preps on stainless steel, super duplex, and other hard to machine alloys. Powered by a pneumatic motor, this tool develops 4,000 ft.-lbs. of torque. A hydraulic motor is optional.

The MILLHOG® Dictator I.D. Clamping Welding End Prep Tool sells for $18,995.00 and can be rented for $665.00 per week, depending upon location.
