ESCO Welding End Prep Tool Is Self-Centering, Has Robust Gear Drive

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2014) - ESCO Tool has reintroduced an I.D. clamping welding end prep tool for boiler tube work on stainless steel and other highly alloyed tubes with overlays. It is now offered with an optional 1-1/4 HP motor.

The ESCO Mongoose MILLHOG® is a self-centering right angle drive I.D. clamping air-powered end prep tool for boiler tubes ranging from 19.1 mm I.D. to 76.2 mm O.D. and is only 57.2 mm W. Featuring a robust gear drive with dual tapered roller bearings, it has a standard 2/3 HP (0.497 kW) motor or an optional 1-1/4 HP (0.932 kW) motor for end prepping stainless steel and other highly alloyed tubes with overlays, and doesn't need cutting oils.

Providing chatter-free operation, the ESCO Mongoose MILLHOG® utilizes the EscoLock™ rigid blade lock system and T-15 tool steel TiN coated cutter blades with a radical chip breaker that directs the chip away from the tube and minimizes heat generation. Wrenches are permanently attached and a patented push-pull release mechanism pushes the clamps off the mandrel.

The ESCO Mongoose MILLHOG® is priced from (USD) $4,495.00.
