RIDGID – How To Ream Stainless Steel Pipe


How To Ream (Stainless) Steel Pipe Hi, I’m Mike from RIDGID. We’re going to talk a little bit
about stainless steel working. We discussed in an early
video about stainless cutting, and we looked at 2 new
tube cutters from ourselves. Tube cutting with a wheel and roller cutter is
what we call at a trader a displacement cut. You don’t actually remove
any metal to form the cut. You push it. And that’s what this wheel does. The wheel pushes metal. Where does it push it? It pushes it into the tube, into the
hole in the middle, quite convenient. There’s a hole there. It will push the metal in there. So that’s what they do. They push and displace the metal into there. Now that burr on the inside of
the tube is a restriction to flow. Okay. You’ve designed a system to
work on a particular size of pipe. And how you’re going to reduce
the internal size? So what you need to do? Well, you need to ream it, and
that’s what these things do. These are stainless steel
reamers from ourselves. We’ve got 2 models here; the 233 and the 227S. Little one. Big one. Up to 36mm and basically up to 54mm. And these are dual function reamers. So you’ve got a cone on either side there. So the cone on this side is
for doing the internal burr. And you just simply turn those
around and mix the burr out. If you’ve got a little burr on the outside
edge, you use the internal cones here. Put the tube in, rotate
it and take the burrs off. And that’s how you prep the
tube after you cut it. You need to ream it with
a stainless steel reamer.
