ESCO Tool Pipe Saw Permits Better End Preps

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 22, 2013) -  ESCO Tool has introduced an air-powered saw and pipe trolley system that cuts all materials and pipe schedules up to 60" dia. to produce perfectly square cuts with no HAZ (heat affected zone).

The Esco APS-438 Air Powered Saw and WrapTrack® pipe trolley let operators rapidly cold cut pipe with ± 1/16" accuracy and no HAZ to permit better end prep bevels for welding. Suitable for cutting all pipe schedules of P-91, Super Duplex stainless steel, and other hard materials, the saw comes with fiberglass reinforced abrasive or diamond tipped carbide blades and the stainless steel band assembly clamps around pipe from 6" to 60" dia.

Capable of cutting a 10" Sch. 160 pipe in less than 10 minutes, the Esco APS-438 Air Powered Saw has a 3 HP pneumatic motor and cuts pipe walls up to 4-3/4" thick. Featuring four "V" grooved stainless steel roll guides, the saw mounts rigidly on the WrapTrack® pipe trolley, is fully supported to reduce strain on the operator and glides smoothly around the pipe.

The Esco APS-438 Air Powered Saw sells for $5,195.00 and the WrapTrack® is priced from $395.00 up, depending upon circumference.
