H&S Speed Facer

Flanges being one of the most essential components of major industries like oil and gas, petrochemicals, and many more, it is important to prepare the surface accurately and safely to reduce leakages. Modern onsite machining facers like the H&S tool Speed Facer offers automatic flange facing with less manpower and completes the job in less time. In this article, we will highlight the benefits of facing flanges with H&S Speed Facers.

H&S Tools is a U.S.A based company owned by CLIMAX – Portable Machining and Welding Systems, which has more than 50 years of experience in designing precision tools for machining services like pipe cutting, boring, welding, milling and flange facing. After years of development, H&S has developed the Speed Facer which offers better safety and productivity in flange maintenance than competitor products. The remote feed control and automatic feed system keep the operator’s hands safe by allowing hands-free machining. The easy set-up makes it possible to achieve crate-to-cut within 15 minutes or less. Additionally, it offers the flexibility for higher metal removal, variable surface finishes, and creates a variety of cuts.

Pipes are an integral application for many major industries like petrochemicals, ports, chemicals, oil & gas, and more. It is important that these applications are maintained appropriately to avoid leakages. In this article, we will talk about why pipeline integrity is important and how cold pipe cutting is better than laser cutting.

As many might know, laser or hot pipe cutting is cutting the pipe using heat, while cold cutting means an open/ split frame pipe cutting machine is used to cut the pipe without heat. The development of cold cutting technology emerged after a series of incidents. One of the primary contributors of these incidents was the presence of hydrocarbons which is a basic building block of energy products in almost every pipeline. The presence of these components creates a potential hazard for pipeline maintenance. Hence, cold cutting was developed to eliminate such hazards and inherent safety advantages.

Cold Pipe Cutting and Beveling

What is Pipe Cutting and Beveling?

Pipe cutting defines its name. It is an onsite machining process that cuts pipe, preparing it to be connected with a new pipe. It is an extremely crucial maintenance and repairing process for industries like petrochemical and oil and gas industries. This also helps service a corroding pipe. Since industries like oil, gas, and petrochemicals are explosive prone, we use cold cutting techniques to ensure safety during plant maintenance or shutdown.
