Inline Services

Inline Services’ Pit Cleaning Pig® is built for heavy-duty cleaning.  The steel body is encompassed by steel wire pencil brushes and polyurethane discs that scrape along the pipeline and make for an aggressive circumferential cleaning. This mandrel-bodied pig is extremely efficient for rust, black powder and mill scale removal. To find out more visit us at www.inlineservices.com

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduced new Flux Pack™ packaging for its OK line of submerged arc welding flux. The packaging uses heavy-duty low-density polyethylene (LDPE) material to protect dry agglomerated welding flux against moisture re-absorption from the atmosphere. These products include ESAB’s Spoolarc® SAW wires and OK Fluxes for various grades of carbon steel, low-alloy steels and stainless steels. The packaging has an extended shelf life, ensuring fresh and dry flux is ready to use for high-production SAW applications. www.esab.com



A pipe-beveling tool upgraded with three blades that combine to rapidly provide compound bevels on highly alloyed, heavy-wall pipe is introduced by Esco Tool. The MILLHOG® Dictator Pipe Machining Tool mounts to the inside diameter of heavy-wall pipe from 4.5 inches to 18-inch I.D. by using three wide clamps with hardened steel contact points. According to the company, it can perform a 37½-by-10 degree bevel or any other angle simultaneously. The tool develops 4,100 ft.-lbs. of torque at the cutter blade and pulls a continuous thick chip without cutting oils. Ideally suited for stainless steel and super duplex piping systems, this beveler has a 3 hp air motor. www.escotool.com

Proto® Industrial Tools

Proto® Industrial Tools announces its new line of six pneumatic impact wrenches, including 1-inch and #5 Spline, which come with two different handle configurations and three different anvil options: Flush 1-inch anvil, 6-inch extended 1-inch anvil, and 6-inch extended #5 spline. All six of these impact wrenches have a through-hole anvil. They are ideal for oil and gas applications and each unit provides 2,500 ft.-lbs. of breakaway torque and weigh between 16-19.6 lbs., providing excellent power-to-weight ratio. www.protoindustrial.com.

Hobart Brothers Inc.

Hobart Brothers Inc.

Hobart introduced its FabCO® 750M gas-shielded flux-cored wire. The wire was designed to provide low diffusible hydrogen weld deposits (3.5 ml per 100 g of weldment) on high-strength applications and minimize the risk of underbead cracking. It is especially suited for welding API 5L Grade X100 pipe or as an overmatch on API 5L Grade X80 pipe. FabCO 750M wire offers high-impact strengths at temperatures as low as -60 °F. It operates with a shielding gas mixture of 75-80% argon and a balance of CO2 and provides a tensile strength of 121 ksi (using a 75/25 shielding gas mixture). It is offered in .045-inch and 0.052-inch diameters. www.HobartBrothers.com


AMETEK Subsea Interconnect has expanded its portfolio of high-pressure, high- temperature (HPHT) connectors with the addition of its Elite Series Wet-Mate connector. The 3-channel connector is designed to operate in extreme environments found in subsea and downhole oil and gas applications. The HPHT connector is 15.8 mm in diameter and has been functionally tested to 1,034 bar and temperatures as high as 150o C. www.ametekinterconnect

Miller Electric
Miller Electric Mfg. Co.

Miller Electric Mfg. Co

Miller Electric Mfg. Co. introduced the Big Blue® 350 PipePro SF engine-driven welder/generator – a smaller, more portable version of the Big Blue 800 Duo Pro SF that also features the exclusive FieldPro™ Smart Feeder compatibility for improved productivity and efficiency in field-welding applications. The multi-process system can run conventional stick, DC TIG, FCAW and MIG welding – and now advanced Regulated Metal Deposition (RMD®) and pulsed MIG processes with the addition of the FieldPro Smart Feeder. These processes help to reduce weld failures and can eliminate backing gas on some stainless and chrome-moly pipe welding applications.www.MillerWelds.com



Ditch Witch®

Ditch Witch®, a Charles Machine Works Company, is helping underground construction professionals bring the proven performance of Ditch Witch digging systems to non-Ditch Witch trencher equipment through a new promotion. The company is offering its conversion sprockets free to customers that purchase Ditch Witch chain and teeth for first-time equipment conversions. Ditch Witch conversion sprockets enable underground construction professionals to fit Ditch Witch chain and teeth to more than 70 trencher models from Barreto®, Bobcat®  Vermeer®, Toro® and other manufacturers. The sprockets mount on a variety of trencher models while maintaining a tooth spacing that matches Ditch Witch chains. www.ditchwitch.com



The new DL200-5 and DL200TC-5 (tool carrier) are the first Doosan wheel loaders with a hydrostatic drive system – in place of the traditional torque converter transmission. The wheel loaders replace the “dash-3” models, transitioning from an interim Tier 4 to Tier 4-compliant diesel engine. They offer improvements in fuel efficiency, operator comfort, serviceability and reliability. Like their predecessors, customers can choose between two lift-arm designs. Both models have a 2.6-cubic-yard bucket capacity and can be equipped with an optional hydraulic quick coupler to easily change non-hydraulic attachments, including buckets – general purpose, light material or multi-purpose – and pallet forks. www.DoosanEquipment.com
