Making Natural Gas Clean with a “Hole” Lot of Pressure

A pressure vessel in the mid-fabrication stages. The pressure vessels Mueller Environmental manufacturers measure anywhere from 4 ft to 8 ft in diameter and are made from ½ in to 3 1/2 in thick 5617 rolled steel plate. The diameter and material thickness depends upon the pressure the vessel must withstand. Sometimes pressures can reach as high as 3,000 psi.
Using a modified HMD915 magnetic drill and Industrial Series of Rotabroach Cutters from Hougen enabled Mueller Environmental to cost-effectively develop a patented new system for cleaning natural gas.

Drilling Diesel Engine and Transmission Components

The versatile, high-precision UNI-50BTA deep hole drilling machine from UNISIG enables operators to rapidly change from BTA to gundrill deep hole drilling tooling, which is ideal for demanding high-production or high-precision applications such as diesel engine and transmission components.
The UNI-50BTA from UNISIG rapidly changes from BTA to gundrill deep hole drilling tooling, and drills with either tooling method within the diameter range in the same part without secondary operations.

Drill/Tap/Mill Centers

The compact DT-1 from Haas is a lean-style machining center that is now available with a 20,000 rpm inline direct-drive spindle for running higher feedrates with small tools and high-speed machining operations.
These high-speed, lean-style machining centers from Haas provide high acceleration rates, fast axis speeds, and short tool change times inside compact footprints that can be placed side-by-side for efficient use of floor space. 

Drilling On Flat or Curved Steel

The MagDrill Disruptor 30 from Magswitch uses a uniquely flexible drill base for a superior grip on flat and round surfaces and a novel pivoting magnet base design. This significantly lighter tool requires no electricity for a controlled, powerful hold on a wide range of flat steel or curved steel surfaces. The magnet turns 100 percent off and does not accumulate magnetic material after drilling.
