Ordering Information: When ordering, specify tube OD and wall thickness (tube ID helpful), tube material, tubesheet thickness, maximum operating pressure and temperature, length from the tubesheet face to the first tube support plate beyond the fracture, and axial clearance extending from the tube end outward (ie: length of channel head or distance to any obstruction preventing direct access to the end of the damaged tube). Specifications subject to change.
