Tube Expanding Machines For Texas and Oklahoma

Tube expanding is the process of reducing a tube wall. By simply expanding the diameter of a tube, you avoid having to purchase all new tubing. Tube expansion has been an important process for a multitude of industries.

Steps of Tube Expanding

There are a few steps one should take prior to tube expanding process. These steps are as follow:

  1. Be sure to know the hole size and the outside diameter of the tube
  2. Subtract the outside diameter from the hole dimensionCoil Expanding
  3. Determine the inside diameter of the tube
  4. Add the inside diameter to the clearance between the outside diameter

Tube Expansion Machinery

As many of you already know, there are a variety of tube expansion machinery within the industry. At Tridan International, we have an extensive line of tube expansion machinery that are available in different forms. Also, these options include horizontal expansion, vertical expansion, and semi-portable expanders.

Different Types of Tube Expanding Machinery

Serving in the Texas and Oklahoma area, we offer coil expansion solutions from small coil to large coil.

Horizontal Tube Expansion

This type of machinery can expand and add the final belling to a tube at the same time. The horizontal tube expansion uses no hydraulics and over time, it has changed its coil sizes very little.

Vertical Tube Expansion

The vertical tube expansion machines are created with saving space in mind. These double sided machines are capable of doing two different jobs at one time to cut down on time. Believe it or not, because of this process, it’s able to save up to 22% in head room.

Semi-Portable Expanders

Semi-portable expanders are versatile portable systems that are designed to be much more mobile than the larger counterparts. In addition, this kind of machinery is able to produce a large amount of volume and are ideal for smaller shops.

Coil Expanders

Tube ExpanderAt Tridan International, we have a wide array of coil expansion machines that can handle your needs. Of course those not familiar with coil expanders, they are devices or machines used to increase the diameter of types tubing. The expander is made up of several sections that are then added to a threaded shaft. Then the device is inserted into the tube, and the expander is then tightened. This will force the device to push outwards and then results in the expansion of the tube.

Our Coil expanders become more beneficial with end sizing of tubes.  They can easily be shaped as bell and flare or just bell to custom specifications and fully ready for bend insertion. Many industries use the products that are made using our tube expansion machinery.  HVAC system and heat exchanger manufacturers for example; use them for building products. Those in turn, are used in many factories and industrial complexes world wide.
