HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - ESCO Tool has introduced a portable tube fin removal tool that rapidly peels the fin and bevels the tube end in one-step, making it ideal for repairing and replacing tubes in heat recovery steam generators.

The Fin MILLHOG® Tube Fin Removal Tool is designed to peel back 4" of fin in less than two minutes to permit rapid inspection and X-ray of the weld for quality control. Suitable for tube repair and replacement, this portable tool mounts rigidly in the tube I.D., has no reaction torque to the operator, bevels the tube end simultaneously, and requires no cutting oils.

Eliminating the need for chipping hammers, grinders, dirt, and dust, the Fin MILLHOG® Tube Fin Removal Tool speeds the quality control process and reduces wear and tear on the operator. Equipped with a 1-1/4 HP pneumatic motor, the range of the tool is 1-1/4" I.D. to 3" O.D. Applications include heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) tubes and coal-fired power plants.

The MILLHOG® Tube Fin Removal Tool is priced at $5,495.00 and is available for rent at $320.00 per week. Literature is available upon request.
