Holliston, Mass., January 28, 2010—A pneumatic pipe saw and wrap around track system that is self centering and self aligning to let users make perfectly square cuts on heavy-wall pipe up to 60 inch diameter is available from ESCO Tool of Holliston, Mass.

The ESCO APS-438 Universal Air Powered Saw and WrapTrack system lets one person make perfectly square cuts to within ±1/16 inch on heavy-wall pipe from 6 inch to 60 inch diameter and 4-3/8 inch thick. Featuring a stainless steel band assembly that wraps around the pipe, the saw is fully supported by four “V” grooved roll guides and rolls smoothly to reduce strain on the operator.

Ideally suited for cutting inspection windows in pipe for final fit-up work in power plants, the ESCO APS-438 Universal Air Powered Saw and WrapTrack system requires no special operator training—unlike clamshell tools. Powered by a 3 HP air motor, the saw uses fiberglass reinforced blades and cuts concrete lined pipe, ash pipe, super duplex SST and other hard alloys.
