- Materials: Any kind of s teel and Exotic alloy
- Power: Pneumatic, or Electric (110v or 220v)
The smallest in our range of i/d locking, direct in-line feed end prep machines. The Prep 2 is small, lightweight, yet powerful, in electric(110v or 220v), or pneumatic drive form.
A 4 jaw tool holder(chuck) allows use of up to 4 form tools to enable weld preparation of thin wall tube, or heavy wall pipe. simultaneous external & internal bevelling and facing of tubes is simple, ideal for accurate repetitive work.
Its size, power, and functionality, make it extremely popular in high volume heat exchanger work, tube facing, weld removal, and J-prepping of the tube plate.
The PREP 2 is torque reactive. This means that the pipe or tube does not have to be fixed to be beveled, making it particularly useful on-site, in
maintenance and repair situations. This is due to the design and strength of the thru shaft system that locks to the bore of the pipe.
Features & Advantages
The Jaw system itself consists of 3 equilaterally positioned machined jaw segments, retained and locked on an inner, ‘grooved’ expansion shaft.
These grooves keep the jaws held securely in position, unlike other systems that use a metal or rubber bands for jaw retention. as the expansion nut is is tightened, the jaws expand, locking tightly, and square to the bore of the pipe.
