Many products are also available for rent, for short-term projects or to test equipment before making a full purchase.
Portable pipe cutting machines
Clamshell pipe lathes are portable pipe cutting machines for any environment, including underwater, petrochemical or hazardous conditions.
Field Machine Tools supplies clamshell lathes in a range of sizes, with a split-ring assembly allowing them to be mounted around in-line piping.
Cutting components are available for severing, severing and double bevelling, severing and bevelling on both sides (the mount side or the opposite), counter boring and socket weld removal.
Tube pulling machines for pressure vessels
Field Machine Tools stocks tube pulling equipment for quick and efficient removal of tubes and stubs from pressure vessels such as heat exchangers and condensers. KRAIS collet pullers are designed to remove both ferrous and non-ferrous material, and produce lines of equipment with lightweight, shortened or combined models. The company’s spear-type puller can also remove alloys and stubs from vessels.
Winema’s Bite-Me collet pullers are available as double acting or automatic gas return, and feature rapid cylinder stroke for increased productivity, a floating collet design, an adjustable nose piece and a detachable single or double actuation control handle.
Field Machine Tools also supplies semi-automatic and continuous tube pullers with pulling rates of up to 2m per minute and 5m per minute respectively. Units are supplied with or without a trolley and optionally removable power units.
Hydraulic torque wrenches for tough bolting applications
Hydraulic torque wrenches are used for difficult bolting applications to tighten bolts and fastenings. Field Machine Tools provides torque equipment from manufacturers such as Hi-Force and Predator, as well as several other leading brands.
Hi-Force square-drive aluminium hydraulic torque wrenches give a torque accuracy of +/- 3%, and a reversible steel square drive for easy switching between tightening and loosening applications. All models come with Uni-Swivel quick release couplers as standard.
The Hi-Force TWN drive cylinder hydraulic torque wrenches come with output torque capacities of between 2,700Nm to 48,181Nm. These wrenches have a compact design for hard-to-reach-applications, and are suitable for continued use even at maximum pressure.
