Hydraulic Tube Expansion
HydroSwage® Hydraulic Tube Expansion Equipment
Haskel International offers a wide range of equipment designed for hydraulic expansion of heat exchanger tubes into tube sheets through the direct application of high internal hydraulic pressure. This equipment constitutes the HydroSwage product line.
"HydroSwage®" is a trademark that has become synonymous with the process of hydraulic expansion. This demonstrates how Haskel technology stands as the industry benchmark for hydraulic expansion equipment.
Mark V HydroSwage® System
The Mark V HydroSwage® System features an electronically controlled, air driven hydraulic system which includes a high pressure intensifier producing pressures to 50,000 psi (3445 bar).
The control panel allows set up and monitoring of all tooling functions through a digital touch screen and is configured to allow Tube-Loc™ and Swage functions to be performed simultaneously by two operators.
The Mark V is housed in a sturdy metal cabinet with heavy duty industrial caster for portability. The touch screen stores expansion history available for download to Excel through a USB port. In addition, analog connections are provided to accommodate chart recorders and computers (optional equipment) for permanent QC records.
Connected to the intensifier by a 20 ft. (6 m) long high pressure flexible tube (other lengths available) the Mark V mandrel holder gives the operator complete control of the swaging cycle. The operator button initiates the sequence of pre-fill, high pressure swage and dwell. The electronic transducer senses the pressure within the tube and displays it on the control panel. The signal lights (yellow for run, green for completed cycle and red for incomplete cycle) advise the operator of swaging status.
