Pipeline Products manufactures pilots of many sizes and styles to fit any brand of Tapping machine. Along with manufacturing we aslo repair or recondition pilots as well. We use the same M-48 tool steel and C-2 carbide as we do in our cutters. Just like the cutters we offer a broad range of pilots from the standard T.D Wiliamson style to any other special requested pilot you may need for the job. Multi U-Wire pilots are also offered for high flow applications if needed. A standard pilot will come with a silver soldered tip but we also offer pilots to accommodate the removable spade tips per the customers request.
HOT TAP CUTTERS
Pipeline Products offers a range of service's when it comes to your shell cutters. Not only do we manufacture new cutters but we also re sharpen them as well. Normally re sharpening includes charting of each cutter for recored keeping as well as traceability. We offer several types of teeth including M-48 tool steel, C-2 carbide which are the industry standard or any special material when requested. Damaged teeth pockets are repaired as well (welded and machined) and in most cases we can straighten out warped back with in tolerance. Liability, today Hot Tapping is pushing the extreme limits, larger sizes, higher pressures,higher temperatures, exotic metals and sub sea taps up to 250 ft plus. Both machines and tooling are reaching new limits, with this in mind companies can't run the risk of a tooth separating from the cutter. This is why Pipeline Products has gone to the extreme to keep up with the latest technology. We use state of the art welding (silver soldering) when mounting the teeth to the cutter shell. Our welding is Laboratory Tested!! The weld is only as good as the tooth pocket. We will not silver solder a new tooth into a damaged pocket, just another step we have taken in assuring you the customer that we are giving you the best quality work we offer.
Pipeline Products offers a range of cutter holders and completion plug holders to fit most machines from the standard T.D Williamson style , Mueller, and A.P Smith. Along with the industry standard cutters we also offer special designed holders per the customers request. Our standard holders for the smaller machines in the 1.25" thru 4.5" range come with pilot already fixed to the holder. We also offer the smaller holders with removable pilots drills depending on style the customer chooses.
