For the removal of tubes from boilers, heat exchangers and condensers, Used to break the seal and pull expanded tubes from a tube sheet. PIPE Ltd supply automatic tube pullers that can continuously pull at up to 8 metres per minute. A spear or expanding collet is inserted and engaged into the tube inner diameter. A ram or gun applies force to exert an extracting force on the tube. The power to pull the tube is generated through a hydraulic pump.
The hydraulic pump can be manually, electrically or pneumatically driven. The pulling force required varies with the tube size and wall thickness, the depth of the tube sheet and tube material. Stub pullers are also available to be used where tubes are cut behind the tube sheet.
