Trav-L-Cutter MODEL E (PNEUMATIC), MODEL HE (HYDRAULIC) he Wachs Trav-L-Cutter is a portable milling machine capable of cold cutting and beveling simultaneously on all machinable pipe materials, pipe schedules and pipe sizes from 6" up to 72" O.D. Secured by its own tensioning chain, the Trav-L-Cutter drives itself around the pipe as it machines. • Safe Cold Cutting • Compact Design, Easy Set-Up • Horizontal and Vertical Cutting All Pipe Diameter Including Tanks Hydraulic Trav-L-Cutter Wachs high speed cutters remove 3/16" of metal while cutting, leaving the pipe end with a smooth, machined finish. Typical tolerances of up to 1/16" closure are possible. Materials such as carbon steel, ductile iron, cast iron and most alloys in all pipe sizes from 6" to 72" can be cold cut and beveled simultaneously. The Trav-L-Cutter can tackle tanks and vessels up to 33 feet in diameter. Hydraulic models offer the inherent advantages of a completely sealed and self-lubricating closed loop system. The Model HE is particularly suited to field machining operations under the type of hostile conditions often found on offshore drilling rigs, pipelines and on construction work in rivers and harbors. Corrosion from constant exposure to salt water can be minimized with a stainless steel accessory package including special bearings, seals and anti-corrosive metal coatings. The chain feed system maintains continuous out-of-round compensation while providing positive drive under all conditions for accurate cuts. By using an optional guide track and special guide track wheels, accuracy of .005" can be maintained even in zero visibility situations on all pipe sizes. This cutting method facilitates section removal in the field where new sections, pre-cut by the same method, can be easily dropped into place. Operates Anywhere In pneumatic or hydraulic driven models, the Trav-L-Cutter will operate on horizontal or vertical pipe, in the field or the shop, in a mud filled ditch or underwater, where it has been used successfully at depths of 600 feet. “Due to its rugged construction it’s not unusual to find Trav-L-Cutters still operating after 20 years of service.” The Trav-L-Cutter can be approved for use in explosive conditions, such as natural gas, crude product and fuel lines, and has even been used to cut missile fuel cells. It can also be adapted to simultaneously cut off and groove pipe in one cut. Cutters are available for Victaulic and other grooved coupling systems.
