Socket Weld Removal

When sockets are involved and no sacrifice to the pipe or socket is desired, the weld must be removed to separate the socket from the pipe. Overcoming challenges such as restricted operating clearances and component part preservation is the difference between success and failure in socket weld removal operations. Precision socket weld removal is easily accomplished with the E.H. Wachs socket weld removal system. Axial and radial socket weld removal kits are available for the Wachs SDSF Small Diameter Splitframe, for small diameter pipe and tube applications ranging from 1 inch to 6 inches (25.4 – 152.4mm) O.D..
