Esco Tool has introduced a saw and track system for accurately cutting pressure vessels up to 60” dia. in preparation for hydrostatic testing and complete fabrication.

The Esco APS-438 Air Powered Saw and WrapTrack® trolley lets operators rapidly cold cut vessels from 6” to 60” dia. with ±1/16” accuracy to permit better bevels for subsequent welding. Capable of cutting a 24” x 0.5” wall vessel in 40 minutes, the saw is ideal for cutting a vessel cap after hydro-static testing to allow beveling and welding the cap into another vessel.

Fully supported to glide smoothly and reduce operator strain, the Esco APS-438 Air Powered Saw mounts rigidly in the WrapTrack® trolley using four “V” grooved stainless steel roll guides. It has a 3 HP pneumatic motor, uses fiberglass reinforced abrasive blades capable of 4-3/4” cuts, and cuts all pipe schedules of P-91, Super Duplex stainless, and other hard materials.

The Esco APS-438 Air Powered Saw sells for $5,895.00 and the WrapTrack® is priced from $395.00 up, depending upon circumference.
