Tube & Pipe End Prep for Sanitary Orbital Welding Applications

Updated: Sep 22, 2023

A portable O.D. clamping tube beveling tool that can bevel, face, and bore simultaneously and has easily interchangeable clamps for changing pipe sizes has been introduced by Esco Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.

The C-HOG MILLHOG O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool mounts securely to the outside of sanitary tubing to maintain the integrity of the tube interior and operates without cutting fluids to prevent contamination. Designed for use on thin-wall tubing, it evenly distributes holding power along the tube exterior, fits tube and pipe from 0.5″ I.D. to 3 0.D. and is ideal for orbital welding end preps because of the consistency of the land.

Available with cutter blades for performing any angle of prep including J-preps, the C-HOG MILLHOG, O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool can bevel, face, and bore simultaneously. Featuring a narrow l.75″W body and a 120V or 220- 240V electric motor, it has an easy to operate attached feed wrench. Pneumatic, hydraulic, and battery powered motors are optional.

The C-HOG MILLHOG O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool is available for rent or purchase.
