The Triple Threat
MTI Power offers a unique group of tools for use in boilers. The SocketMaster, The TubeMaster and The "Johnny Neutron" (offset tube stub removal machine). When you look into MTI Power equipment you find tools with "unstoppable" power, reliability and adaptability.
Every year MTI POWER preps hundreds of boiler tubes for welding. Often, orbital tube welding is specified. 20° J-bevels and counterbores with close tolerances (.005") are required.
Close tolerance machining of the tubes is often necessary for the orbital tube welding process
We developed a method to speed the process of Offset Header Stub Tube Machining. We designed a machine that cuts a socket weld hole and bevel, retrieves the plug to prevent it from entering into the header, then machines the socket seat, radius and weld bevel.
