Equipment for Pipe Cutting and Beveling

Ever more complex pipe configurations are required by today’s industry.
No matter how good the preparation, pipe always needs to be modified
in the field.

Equipment offered by CRC–Evans and Tri Tool provides for quick and high quality end preparation prior to welding, for replacing defective pipe joints, emergency repair and laying of new pipelines as well.

Tri Tool equipment is used in various aspects of industry. These include: nuclear power plants, offshore work, petrochemical plants, municipal heating, boilers and oil, gas and products pipelines.


Their advantages are clear:

  • Simple and efficient to install, both on an open pipe end with the aid of an internal line–up clamp, as well as at any point along the pipe, using a clamshell type external line–up clamp.
  • Wide range of diameters from 1/8" to 60". Wall thicknesses may range up to 60 mm and beyond. Pipe materials run the gamut from plastic to high–alloy and stainless steels, including nonferrous metals and their alloys.
  • Processing of thin–walled pipe with internal pipe surface electrical polishing without denting the pipe end or damage
    or adding impurities to the pipe surface.
  • Wide range of standard accessories, cutting tools and holders, as well as an unlimited range of nonstandard configurations.
  • The ability to carry out practically any lathing operation including circular cut, beveling, chamfering, sharpening, machining complex end profiles by passing a cutter, cutting
    of grooves.
  • Unified set of equipment: one unit can run up to three independent machining operations (for example, beveling, chamfering and sharpening).
  • Minimum requirements for the length of the linear pipe joint
    to ensure it is safely attached.
  • Ability to machine pipe in complex forms: knee bends, fittings etc, including treating the surface of fittings for dependable and hermetic assembly.
  • Ability to operate in areas difficult to access, places where
    an operator cannot fit, clean rooms as well as in harsh climatic conditions and even under water.
  • Minimal service and maintenance.
  • Minimal personnel requirements.
  • Ability to make use of automation and remote control
    in machining operations.
