An eddy current flaw detection system is suitable for detecting discontinuities in tube and pipe during the production process. Understanding about eddy current system principles and this technology's capabilities and limitations can help tube and pipe producers learn how to use such a system.
The PIPE-MAX is a combination grinder and pipe belt sander. The front hard rubber contact roller drives the abrasive belt to grind flat surfaces. It removes weld seams in a straight line, without leaving edges or a wavy finish. For sanding pipes or handrails, the sanding belt follows every contour to grind and polish up to a high-gloss finish. Ideal for stainless steel, aluminum and high-quality metals.
