Pipe Saw & Wrap Around Track Cuts Concrete Lined Ductile Iron Pipe
A pneumatic saw combined with a pipe trolley and wrap-around track system for cold cutting pipe from 6″ to 60″ dia., including concrete lined pipe, has been introduced by Esco Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.
The MILLHOG APS-438 Air Powered Saw and WrapTrack system uses a trolley that mounts on a wrap-around track and features an articulating arm which keeps the saw blade on its leading edge to produce square cuts accurate to ±1/16″. Available with track sections for cutting pipe from 6″ to 60″ dia., this combination saw and track system employs a proprietary 12″ abrasive cut-off blade designed for cold cutting concrete lined ductile pipe.
Ideally suited for cutting underground steam lines, the MILLHOG APS-438 Air Powered Saw and WrapTrack system eliminates torch cutting and grinding
which can chip and crack the concrete internally because of stress and bending. Leaving a smooth finish for joining the pipes using couplings, this pneumatic saw also cuts other types of materials and lined pipes.
The MILLHOG APS-438 Air Powered Saw and the WrapTrack are available for rent or purchase.
