Elliott Announces A New Solution For Expanding Tubes In Air Coolers

New patent pending collar design prevents damage to the plug hole and gasket seat while rolling.

DAYTON, OH – October 24, 2022 – Elliott Tool Technologies, a USA based tube tool manufacturer, announced the launch of a new condenser expander collar design. The air cooler collar ring is designed to prevent costly damage to the plug hole threads and reduce the pressure put on the header box face.

“In this application, the expander collar can be pulled into the plug hole and create added stress to the expander and even the rolling motor,” said Brandon Fultz, Application Specialist, Elliott Tool Technologies. “This stress can result in broken tools, as well as the need to re-chase plug hole threads and fix spot facing.”

The air cooler collar ring can be added to any 24 Series flush collar expander assembly, allowing for quick and easy set up. Simply slide the ring over the nose of the collar, align the set screw hole, and tighten.

Gathering customer feedback was very important for the project, as it allowed the team to determine the lowest cost solution with minimal changes to the job process. “What’s unique about this design is that it’s simple and doesn’t modify the functionality of the tool,” explained Brandon. “Being able to see customers roll tubes in the field and hearing their challenges firsthand gave us the information we needed to design a simple and affordable solution.”
