Confined spaces are one of the most common challenges boilermakers face during tube installation and maintenance. From squeezing into drums, to working in tight utility rooms, space constraints are present in all aspects of the job. In order to get the job done quickly and effectively, it’s important that operators have the proper tooling on hand. Using the wrong tooling can make the job harder and pose safety concerns.
It's no secret that tube leaks or failing hydro is a huge headache for organizations. When it comes to tube installation, proper expansion can be the difference between an expensive repair bill and a long-lasting vessel.
