End cutoff system preps pipe for hydrotesting

February 27, 2013

Brandt Engineered Products Ltd. has introduced a new end cutoff system for parting and beveling of pipes at various feed rates and surface speeds before hydrotesting. Beveling removes unwanted burrs on the outside of the pipe to prevent cutting the hydrotest seals as the pipe enters the test heads.

The system also provides quick cutoffs in lengths up to 18 in. to prepare test samples for use in flat tests, ring hardness tests, or tensile strength tests. Damaged or hooked pipe ends are removed before any further processing.
