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.

Heavy-Duty Magnetic Drill is Easily Portable to Jobsite

The two-speed MABasic 450 portable magnetic drill cuts holes up to 1-5/8 in diameter with annular cutters in structural steel and other metals. This heavy-duty workhorse has a 10.5 amp/110 V double-insulated motor and a no-load speed of 250 rpm and 450 rpm.  It is equipped with an internal lubrication system that increases the life of annular cutters by reducing friction and wear.
The compact, lightweight MABasic 450 drill from CS Unitec is an ideal hole-cutting solution for steel fabricators, contractors and maintenance operations.

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.
