Abrasive grinding wheels remove pipe thread corrosion, burrs - TheFabricator.com

Rex-Cut Abrasives offers cotton-fiber abrasive wheels for removing rust, corrosion, and thread-lock from pipe threads during oil field inspections and process maintenance, as well as deburring manufactured pipe and tubing.

Rex-Cut® Type 1 wheels, designed for pipe thread maintenance, feature multiple layers of nonwoven cotton fabric and aluminum oxide abrasives pressed and bonded together with a soft bond. Smooth Touch™ wheels with a medium bond are designed for thread-lock removal without changing the thread geometry.

Developed for use on stainless steel, INCONEL® alloy, and other highly alloyed pipe and tubing, the wheels are available in 0.0625-, 0.125-, and 0.25-in. thicknesses and 2-, 3-, and 4-in. sizes. For manual or robotic deburring and finishing of machined and cast parts, different grit types, grain sizes, and bonds are offered.
