Electrofusion requires the outside diameter of pipe to be clean and free of oxidation. The True Peel™ PE Prep Tool removes dirt and oxidation from the outside diameter of the pipe in preparation for electrofusion. Its spring-loaded blade does not skip and it keeps consistent pressure on the pipe to yield a smooth, finished surface. The blade completely peels even out-of-round pipe with the help of the close fitting mandrel which rerounds oval pipe. Blade may be rotated 180 degrees to provide a second cutting edge, giving twice the blade life. An observation window allows operator to see when the peel is complete by viewing the pipe end in the middle of the window. These tools can be used on the ends of pipe or on tapping tee outlets. Each model is size specific for both pipe size and wall thickness. The True Peel™ low profile allows it to be used on tapping tee outlets with limited clearance, unlike conventional peelers with a large swing radius. Reed True Peel™ models ship in a protective carrying case.
