Tube expansion is the process of reducing the tube wall while compressing the outside diameter of the tube. There are different types of tube expander such as the hydraulic tube expansion, elastic tube expansion, and the expander method.
The hydraulic process uses an even pressure from inside the tube using a fluid, most likely water. The elastic expansion uses a special rubber component. The tube expansion method pushes and expands tubes that have been inserted in the holes of the tube sheet.
