If the tubes are attached to the tube sheet by welding, cracks in the tube ends can propagate to the tube sheet, and possibly run into the ligaments between the tubes. A tube sheet can easily be damaged beyond repair with cracks of this nature, and it can start with a fraction of an inch in excess tube projection.
2019-5-25 · Typical U-Tube Bundle. Tubesheets of Heat Exchangers. Tubesheets are usually made from a round flat piece of metal with holes drilled for the tube ends in a precise location and pattern relative to one another. Tube sheet materials range as tube materials. Tubes are attached to the tube sheet by pneumatic or hydraulic pressure or by roller
Retubing & tube replacement for boilers of all sizes. IB&M specializes in the retubing of firetube boilers, watertube boilers, superheaters, pre-heaters, heat exchangers and other pressure vessels. Boiler tubes must be able to endure extremely high temperatures, pressures, and potentially wide fluctuations in demand depending on the application.
2006-9-4 · Rear tube sheet beading/seal welds make the pull out value higher and keeps the tube ends from burning off. In a old boiler a "seal weld" seldom seals. If your hole is bad use a copper ferrule,a good (maybe old) boiler guy will know about this. Call a "GOOD" boiler repair firm--you will be glad you did and cheaper in the long run. Sorry you

2018-2-16 · By expanding the tube inside the tubesheet, swaging ensures that the space between the two components is always forced closed. Hydraulic expansion is the direct application of high internal pressure within a tube or sleeve in order to form a tight joint between the tube and tube sheet or a tight seal between the sleeve and tube.
Tube expansion is a faster and most reliable method of obtaining a perfect joint between the tube sheet and the tube for the heat exchanger and high temperature generator The cost of tube expansion equipment work to economical at compared to any other tube to tube sheet joint.
