TB1 Prepper: Efficient Tube-to-Tube Sheet Weld Removal and Bevelling

Versatile End Preparation Machine for Heat Exchangers and Welding Applications

The TB1 Prepper is a rugged, portable, machine designed for the removal of tube-to-tube sheet welds in heat exchangers.

This bevelling machine can also be used for facing and bevelling the ends of tube and pipe for general welding and fabrication processes.

Utilising a torque-reacted locking system and durable taper roller bearings, this end preparation lathe is highly stable.

The machine is supplied with hand-wheel feed as standard. A ratchet feed mechanism which is designed for weld removal applications where space may be limited is available as an option.
