A boiler tube alignment fixture that easily attaches to a waterwall boiler tube panel and includes all tools, accessories, and a new drop safety lanyard has been introduced by Esco Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.
The Esco HOG TIE® Boiler Tube Weld Alignment Clamp Kit includes everything necessary to achieve accurate horizontal and vertical gap spacing to assure the proper gap for producing high-integrity boiler tube joint welds. Providing a fast and easy way to speed waterwall boiler tube fit-up and reduce tube joint failures caused by misalignment, this tube alignment clamp is now offered with a safety lanyard to prevent dropping.
Simple to use, one side of the Esco HOG TIE® Boiler Tube Weld Alignment Clamp has two through-holes and the other has threaded inserts which accept two bolts that draw them together; exposing the tube ends for tack welding before removal to finish the weld. Kits come in 7 sizes for 1.75” to 3.25” O.D. tubes and include an impact wrench and socket, four 0.5” bolts, two spare through-hole inserts and two threaded inserts, and a metal case.
