Oil & Petrochemical Refining

E.H. Wachs is a pioneer in weld preparation products designed and built to serve the unique needs of the oil and gas industry. In 1949 a large natural gas supplier looked to us for a safer way to cut and bevel their pipelines prior to welding. This lead to the introduction of the revolutionary Wachs Trav-L-Cutter®, a pioneering “cold cutting” machine tool that simultaneously cut and beveled as the machine drove itself around the pipe.

Today E.H. Wachs manufactures the finest in pipe and tube cutting, beveling and facing products. We offer unrivaled product availability, complete technical support and a localized network of factory and independent product specialists. Products include portable cold cutting and beveling machine tools, I.D. and O.D. mounted flange facing products, handheld valve operators and related tooling and accessories.

Wachs products are used extensively in oil and petrochemical refining, terminals, oil fields, tank farms, loading facilities, heat exchanger fabrication and repair and wherever pipe, valves, tees or flanges are used. All our products are designed and built to world class standards under the ISO 9001 Quality Management System.
