Kattex Cut - Multiuse portable hydraulyc tools for the incising of tubes with O.D. up to 107,95 mm ( 4.1/4" )
Ensures the rapid recovery of the tubesheet by facilitating tube extraction

Maus Italia has solved the problem of tubesheet safeguarding and recovery during the dismantling of heat exchangers.

  • Depth of cut adjustable from 10 mm to 465 mm ( from 0.394" to 18.387" )
The Kattex Cut, a patented Maus Italia product, instantly cuts the tubes from the tube bundle from the inside, without production of swarf, thus facilitating subsequent operations, such as:

  • The extraction of tube pieces with Grippul series extractor
  • The extraction of the tubes with Runpul series continuous extractors

Exceptional construction features

Metal swarf-free cutting

The Kattex Cut works on the inside of the tube to be cut and, thanks to the hydraulic force from its dedicated power unit, expands the incisor/cutter ( K5K or K12K ) that penetrates the thickness of the tube. The incising of the tube is sufficient to create a breaking point and facilitate subsequent extraction operations.

If necessary, for a complete cutting of the tube, repeat the operation by rotating the device.
