All hardbanding units require one, so if you don’t have an existing system, we’ve produced one so you can lift your pipes effortlessly:
Two ball roller adjustable jacks
Additional third jack behind chuck for handling HWDP and Collars.
All controlled by levers at the welder’s fingertips
We offer two options, with different levels of cost and efficiency:
We have designed ’Skye Heat’ for easy application and positioning over the tool joint or centre wear pad, to give a proper ‘soak’ heat.
This is the new technology, offering faster, deeper heating. Although initially more expensive to purchase, over the long term this unit works out less expensive than using Propane.
With this system you can:
Use the same chuck and weld box
Or add an additional chuck to the back of the unit, to allow plasma and hardbanding to be carried out simultaneously.
