A line of cotton fiber abrasive wheels for removing rust, corrosion, and thread-lock from pipe threads during oil field inspections and process maintenance, as well as deburring manufactured pipe and tubing, is now available. Rex-Cut® Type 1 Wheels for pipe thread maintenance feature multiple layers of non-woven cotton fabric and aluminum oxide abrasives pressed and bonded together with a soft bond and are ideally suited for removing rust and corrosion from pipe threads.
For thread-lock removal without changing the thread geometry, Smooth Touch™ wheels with a medium bond are recommended and last up to five times longer than unitized wheels, claims the firm. Developed for use on stainless steel, Inconel®, and other highly-alloyed pipe and tubing, Rex-Cut® Type 1 and Smooth Touch™ Wheels for pipe thread maintenance are available 1/16”, 1/8”, and 1/4” thick and 2”, 3” and 4” sizes. For manual or robotic deburring and finishing of machined and cast parts, different grit types, grain sizes, and bonds are offered. Rex-Cut® Type 1 Wheels and Smooth Touch™ Wheels are priced according to type and quantity. Samples and pricing are provided on request.
