05 January 2019

An air-powered saw that features a self-centering track system, pre-sized for pipe from 6″ to 60″ dia., to produce perfectly square cuts with no HAZ (heat affect zone) is available from ESCO Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.

The ESCO APS-438 Universal Air-Powered Saw features a fiberglass reinforced blade for cutting super duplex stainless steel pipe, concrete lined pipe, ash pipe, and other heavy-wall hard alloy pipe up to 4-3/8″ thick. Ideally suited for 6″ to 60″ dia. pipe, it is available with the WrapTrack® System of pre-sized stainless steel bands that clamp onto the pipe circumference.

Easy to setup and use, the ESCO APS-438 Universal Air-Powered Saw mounts securely onto the WrapTrack® System, using a trolley with four V-grooved stainless steel roll guides. Powered by a 3 HP pneumatic motor, the saw is fully supported to reduce operator fatigue. Applications include onsite pipe cutting, erection of piping systems, and pipe fabrication in shops.

The ESCO APS-438 Universal Air-Powered Saw and WrapTrack® System are available for sale and rent.
