Cold cutting and beveling pipes is the first step in the Cold Cutting / Isolation / Test system of Carber T.S.E.. The technicians can simultaneously cut and bevel your piping without the use of open flames or producing sparks in your facility. Cold cutting offers many advantages over other methods of pipe cutting. Because there is no spark or flame produced, cold cutting does not require lines to be gas free. In some instances this also eliminates the need to obtain a hot work permit to simply cut a piece of pipe.
Safety is ensured through the omission of sparks and flames which guarantees there will be no ignition of combustible gasses left in the line. Exposure to the contents of the pipe is greatly reduced due to the operation of the cutting tool. Because the machine mounts on the OD of the pipe and cuts from the outside to the inside in multiple passes, the ID of the pipe is only penetrated during the last few seconds of the cutting process. This reduces the exposure of the contents of the pipe to the environment and personnel, reducing risk when cutting pipes with dangerous contents.
When you need fast, accurate precision machined cuts, call Carber T.S.E.. Upon completion of the cutting job, Carber T.S.E. can also isolate the line by utilizing the Isolation Tool.
