Tube Expanders for Retubing - Removal and Installation Tooling

Tubing Expander - Definition.

A tubing expander is a precision instrument used to widen the ends of tubes within a tube sheet. It comprises a Mandrel, Rolls, and a Cage. The mandrel, when rotated, is pulled into the cage due to the rollers’ angle. This action forces the rollers outward into the tube’s ID, causing the tube’s exterior to form a seal with the tube sheet. Consequently, the tube wall thickness is reduced to a predetermined percentage, which varies based on the tube’s size and material.
