Stop Heat Exchanger Leakage Before It Stops You

One of the most common heat exchanger failures is caused by tube leaks. Small or big, a tube in-leakage might compromise thermal performance, create contamination, increase energy usage, and lead to serious plant capacity loss and/or shutdown. Also, plant personnel can be exposed to chemical hazards and equipment can catch on fire or explode.

Tube vibration is a leading cause of tube leaks. Tube seal weld cracks and tubesheet cracks are other sources of leakage. The leak can happen on individual tubes or on entire rows or regions within the heat exchanger.

So, what to do?

Pop-A-Plug® Tube Plug is a proven performer in highly corrosive and severe service conditions. Pop-A-Plug Tube Plugs hydraulic installation significantly reduces turnaround/downtime (no welding necessary). Our Pop-A-Plug Tube Plugs (available in over 35 different alloys) match your heat exchanger tube material avoiding thermal expansion, contraction issues, and undesirable galvanic corrosion.
