DynaPrep SDSF Applications
E.H. Wachs DynaPrep SDSF split frame clamshell machine tools are the foundation of a complete small diameter pipe and tube machining system that performs a wide range of field machining applications. DynaPrep SDSF weld prep machine tools can perform precision inline pipe cutting, squaring of pipe ends, and destructive cutting on corroded or damaged pipe and tubing.
A pipe cutter by definition, the DynaPrep SDSF pipe and tube cutting machine can simultaneously cut and bevel inline pipe. With its compact dimensions, the SDSF is optimized for low clearance environments, ideal for cutting of pipe in pipe racks for example, or anywhere the envelope for pipe and tube cutting is restricted. Highly versatile, additional modules are available that mount without modification to the standard SDSF ring set.
Wachs DynaPrep SDSF can act as a pipe beveler, beveling inline pipe, open pipe ends and chamfering open ended pipe. In applications where a compound bevel is required, the DynaPrep can act as a compound beveler, beveling with form tools (where the tooling has the finished profile).
Going far beyond basic cutting and beveling capability, the DynaPrep SDSF is the basis of Wachs socket weld removal system. Designed to remove couplers and elbows from existing piping systems by machining away the joining weld material, there are two models. For axial weld removal, the tooling is advanced in line with the pipe axis. For radial socket weld removal, the socket weld material is removed by a radial plunge design that cuts away the socket weld. Additionally a FME Foreign Material Exclusion chipless wheel cutting module is available for the SDSF. This is designed for applications where the introduction of chip debris cannot be
