Pipeline Products offers a range of service’s when it comes to your shell cutters. Not only do we manufacture new cutters but we also re sharpen them as well. Normally re sharpening includes charting of each cutter for recored keeping as well as traceability. We offer several types of teeth including M-48 tool steel, C-2 carbide which are the industry standard or any special material when requested. Damaged teeth pockets are repaired as well (welded and machined) and in most cases we can straighten out warped back with in tolerance. Liability, today Hot Tapping is pushing the extreme limits, larger sizes, higher pressures,higher temperatures, exotic metals and sub sea taps up to 250 ft plus. Both machines and tooling are reaching new limits, with this in mind companies can’t run the risk of a tooth separating from the cutter. This is why Pipeline Products has gone to the extreme to keep up with the latest technology. We use state of the art welding (silver soldering) when mounting the teeth to the cutter shell. Our welding is Laboratory Tested!! The weld is only as good as the tooth pocket. We will not silver solder a new tooth into a damaged pocket, just another step we have taken in assuring you the customer that we are giving you the best quality work we offer.
