Heat exchanger tube testing tool
Heat exchangers are widely used at petrochemical and power generation plants. As they are mostly are in corrosive fluids, tubes will leak gradually and consequently they need retubing.
Tube testing tools are used for leak detection of each tube in heat exchangers and thereafter the maintenance manager will decide to tube treatment.
SayyalAzma is proud of development special tools used for leak detection and also proceed treatment.
The tool is composed of grippers to clamp inside the tube and elastic gasket to seal inside each tube. For shell and tube heat exchangers (straight and U type), two tools are used simultaneously to leak each tube separately. The tool has a hole at centre to fill water and drain air.
