The Model BTP-3 Tube End Sizer is one of a family of four tube end sizers built by TRIDAN. Also, the Model BTH-2 Tube End Sizer is a hydraulically powered version of the BTP-3. It uses the same tube end sizing collets. The Models BFA-2V and BFA-2H Tube End Sizers/Flarers are air operated tube end sizers, which also flare the tube end.

In addition, this operation is required when tubes of the same diameter are to be joined or for the insertion of return bends into straight tubes or hairpins, which have been expanded by the following TRIDAN Expanders:
