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.

Magswitch Wins Innovation Award

The award-winning MagDrill Disruptor 30 magnetic drill press, which utilizes patented technology with added patent-pending pipe conformability. Its uniquely flexible drill base is capable of a superior grip on flat and round surfaces, as well as pipe outer and pipe inner. Its novel swiveling magnet base design lands on pipe a little over 2 in diameter. Compared to competitor drill bases, it delivers better results on thinner steel.
Their MagDrill Disruptor 30 is recognized for applications in electrical, plumbing, MRO, concrete and general contracting.

Portable Four-Speed Magnetic Drill for Demanding Holemaking Jobs

Booth C-21021: The mag drill pilot light on the HMD934 portable magnetic drill  is a LED light built into the base of the magnet that allows the operator to efficiently and quickly line up the pilot with the hole’s center location in all lighting conditions. A guide rail feed system maximizes cutter stability and rigidity. A proprietary high torque two-speed Hougen motor powers the drill. The two speeds along with interchangeable gears give the drill four speeds to help maximize tool life and increase torque when using large diameter cutters.
The power-to-weight ratio of the new HMD934 portable magnetic drill from Hougen can drill holes up to 4 in deep in steel, with diameters up to 3-1/16 in.

Power Packed Two-Speed Magnetic Drill

Booth C-21021: The powerful, high torque two-speed motor on the lightweight HMD917 portable magnetic drill from Hougen provides a great power-to-weight ratio for more strength and torque to drill large deep holes in steel.
The HMD917 portable magnetic drill from Hougen Manufacturing has a great power-to-weight ratio that gives metal fabricators more strength and torque to drill large deep holes in steel.

Portable Magnetic Drill with Automatic Feed and Reverse

Booth N-2311: Ideal for steel fabricators, contractors and plant maintenance professionals, the AutoMAB 350 portable magnetic drill from CS Unitec features an automatic feed mechanism with automatic reverse and shut off and can drill holes up to 1-1/2 in diameter with annular cutters in structural steel and other metals.
