Title Description
Basic Principles Of Tube Expanding Tube Expanding is based on engineering principles, involving elasticity and plasticity, to compress the OD of the tube against a fixed container. To assure a proper tube joint, the tube wall must be reduced by a predetermined percentage. The following chart can be used for determining the correct tube wall reduction.
Finished ID Calculator Easy to use calculator for determining the correct tube wall reduction.
Tube Expander Design & Usage How to choose the best tube expander to suit your needs.
Tube Expansion Calculation Spreadsheet Ensure proper tube to the tube sheet seals and correct electric torque box settings with the aid of this spreadsheet.
Tube Gauge Calculator Determine the gauge of your tube using the OD, ID, and wall thickness.
