Split Frame Clamshell Fundamentals

  • Clamping Mechanism: The split frame design allows the tool to part into two sections, facilitating its placement around the external circumference of in-line pipes, tubes, or flanges for secure clamping.
  • Versatility in Function: Capable of executing a variety of tasks, split frame clamshells adeptly handle cutting, beveling, single-pointing, counterboring, and facing flanges, accommodating a broad spectrum of pipe sizes.
  • Operational Design: Upon installation, the clamshell maintains a stable frame for support. A rotating ring affixed to this frame transports the machining modules and tooling necessary for operation.
  • Machining Dynamics: In action, the tooling modules on the rotating ring carry out the required operations, such as cutting and beveling, while the stationary frame remains firmly attached to the pipe.

Flange Facers: Key Features and Advantages

Key Features:

  • Precision Machining: Flange facers deliver essential machining services for flange surfaces, a critical aspect during repair and maintenance.
  • Seal Enhancement: By resurfacing flanges, they create fresh mating surfaces, ensuring an impeccable seal upon assembly.
  • Industry Versatility: These tools find applications across a spectrum of sectors, including oil and gas, petrochemicals, refineries, pharmaceuticals, pipelines, food processing, chemicals, and power generation.

Principal Advantages:

  • Enhanced Joint Longevity: Routine use of flange facers is vital for preventing leaks and corrosion, thus extending the lifespan of flange joints.
  • Effective Leakage Prevention: The spiral grooved finish provided by flange facers reduces the risk of leakages, as it directs fluids along a spiral trajectory.
  • Essential for Maintenance: Flange facers play a pivotal role during plant shutdowns and maintenance, ranking among the most crucial repair tools.
