Mechanical Tube Plugging Solution


Design Goals For an Ideal Heat Exchanger Tube Plugging System Include:

1. Reliable performance over the life of the heat exchanger under the most severe conditions.

2. Simple installation.

  • Plant maintenance personnel should be able to install the plug easily by following a few simple instructions.
  • Correct sizing of the plug must be accurate and foolproof.
  • Preparation of the tube, sizing, and installation of the plug should require only a few minutes.

3. Installation must not cause damage to adjacent tubes. 

4. Must be safe for all maintenance workers.
