Tapered Tube Plugging

Tube Plugs for Condensers , Heat Exchangers ,Boilers and Chillers

Tube Plugs for Condensers , Heat Exchangers ,Boilers and Chillers

Tube Plugs seal the ends of leaking tubes, providing longer use of the Condensers , Heat Exchangers ,Boilers and Chillers. The uniform taper and the smooth surface finish assure positive sealing with minimum installation force. The one-piece design of the pin plug provides an easy solution to permanent plugging for tubes or tubesheet holes.

Unique Advantage of FAV Tube Plugs

1)       Special materials and sizes can be custom manufactured

2)       Can be machined to your drawing specifications.

Application

For permanent plugging of condenser and heat exchanger tubes and tubesheet holes. Can be used in some high temperature/pressure heat exchangers . Tube plugs driven into leaking tubes just before heat exchanger goes back into operation
