Elliott Announces A Faster Way To Expand Small Heat Exchanger Tubes New and improved design expands tubes faster than any Elliott expander before, now at a [...]
There are two motor power sources that are used for expanding tubes mechanically: electric rolling motors and pneumatic rolling motors. Determining what motor to use for a job will depend on operator preference, availability of electricity or air, and the application.
Basic Principles Of Tube Expansion Materials, Tube Leaks, & Pre-Expansion Steps Tubing Material Below are materials and percentages that can [...]
Tube Hole Gauges make it easy to accurately measure tube IDs and tube sheet holes found in vessels such as heat exchangers, chillers, and surface condensers.
Knowing how to determine wall reduction is important; however it is equally important to know the characteristics of the popular tubing materials. A simple rule of thumb is the harder the material, the less wall reduction required to obtain a tube joint.
Assisted tube rolling systems are a great way to increase productivity and decrease cost. Elliott offers 4 quality systems to suit your specific industry and application needs.
Getting the right tools for your application is critical in order to complete the job right the first time. One of the most overlooked factors when ordering tooling, is determining whether you have minimum wall or average wall tubing.
The American Society Of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) develops standards to provide consistency and ensure public safety and reliability. While these codes are not always required, they have been widely adopted and implemented across many industries. As a result, it is important to be knowledgeable and aware of these standards prior to beginning a job.
