ICI Cutter SystemDesigned to expedite the process of cutting ICI (In-Core Instrumentation) cables, EPI's ICI Cutter System is the newest tool of its kind to the industry.  Field tested to reduce man-hours, dose and cost, this unit stands at the forefront of automated underwater cutting.

Built as a lightweight and compact unit, the ICI Cutter System utilizes a hydraulic feed motor as well as a hydraucally operated cutter head.  Pneumatic cylinders are tasked with providing the force necessary to eliminate 'slippage' of the ICI cable.  Connected to the main control unit - which can be run manually or set to automatic mode - the ICI Cutter System controls are easily maintained by the engineer/technician.

Some of the technical specifications:

  • System Pressure 2500 psi Minimum
  • Auto / Stop / Manual Operation
  • PLC controlled timing and valving
  • Cutter pressure 1500 psi (adjustable 1,000-2,000 psi)
  • Motor feed pressure 1100 psi (adjustable 500-1500 psi)
  • System hydraulic fluid - UCON WS-34
  • (5) 50' thermoplastic hydraulic hoses
  • Hydraulic Quick-Disconnect fittings
  • Power Requirements: 220 Volt single phase
  • Adjustable 0-130 psi air regulator
