Pneumatic Saw Goes from 6 to 60

A pneumatic saw and universal pipe trolley kit that eliminates the need for heavy, clamshell saws for cutting all types of alloys and concrete-lined pipe are available from ESCO Tool of Holliston, Mass. The Esco APS-438 Air-Powered Saw and WrapTrack let users cut 6-inch to 60-inch outer-diameter pipe accurately without a heat-affected zone and are designed for use on stainless steels, inconel, and ash- and concrete-lined pipe. Capable of cutting a 10-inch Sch. 160 pipe in under 10 minutes, the saw features fiberglass reinforced blades and mounts rigidly using four V-grooved steel wheels.

Attaching to the pipe’s circumference, the WrapTrack incorporates steel bands that correspond to the outside diameter and permit the APS-438 Air-Powered Saw to glide smoothly around it to make cuts with ±1/8-inch accuracy. This pneumatic saw and track system is suitable for pipeline construction, maintenance, and related applications. (
