Portable End Prep Tool From ESCO Features Improved I.D. Clampingadmin
ESCO Tool has introduced a new and improved clamping mechanism for its air-powered, right angle drive portable welding end prep tool that features a smooth exterior for easy entry and removal from the boiler tube without catching on burrs.
The Esco “Ground” MILLHOG® is a right angle drive portable end prep tool that features a robust clamp rib assembly incorporating a captive internal band and smooth clamp ribs. Unlike external spring-type clamping devices, this I.D. clamping end prep tool is easy to remove from the tube, will not catch on burrs, and is unaffected by repetitive cycling, claims the firm.
Ideal for end prepping single water wall boiler panel tubes in tight spaces, the Esco “Ground” MILLHOG® only requires a 1-1/2″ radial clearance. Totally sealed for use in any orientation, this scarfing tool is self-centering, provides torque-free operation, has TiN coated cutter blades, and can prep high chrome content alloyed tubes ranging from 1/2″ I.D. to 2-1/4″ O.D.
The Esco “Ground” MILLHOG® is priced at $3,995.00 and can be rented for $175.00 per week in the continental U.S.A. with overnight shipment.
