Tube Preparation Tools

Tube brushes are ideal for properly prepping your heat exchanger tubes for a tube plug. The brushes remove pitting and corrosion from inside the tube, allowing optimum sealing and holding forces for your Snap It tube plug. Because Snap It Jr has a range of tube sizes that it can effectively seal, brush kits come with 3-4 brushes per kit. Use the smallest brush in your brush kit that effectively cleans and preps the tube. Snap It Sr brushes are provided for the exact tube size ordered, ensuring a perfect fit. This step is absolutely crucial to ensuring you have the optimal seal with your tube plugs.

Installation Tools

Installation Tools

The hydraulic ram is the simplest, safest, quickest and easiest way to install Snap It Sr or Snap It Jr tube plugs. This installation kit is compact and lightweight (the ram only weighs 7 lbs) yet it has plenty of power to easily install all of our tube plugs. The pump is air driven and requires 80 to 120 lbs of supply air @ 20CFM during the few seconds it is operated and comes in a durable storage case on wheels. When you order the complete kit - it comes with everything needed for installing Snap It Jr or Sr Plugs for near end applications.

Through the tube plugging, for far end applications, is performed with the same tool by adding the appropriate number of extension assemblies with a channel head pull rod assembly (CHPRA) and following the "through the tube" instructions. Order this complete kit if you want to go into your next turnaround with complete peace of mind!

Pull Rod Assembly - Used with the Hydraulic RAM, this assembly installs the plug in place. Our assemblies are fully interchangeable with competitors' systems and have been designed to minimize your costs by utilizing multiple plug positioners with each pull rod size.

Removal Tools

Plug Removal Tool

Plug Removal Tool - Designed to easily and quickly remove installed tube plugs. The plug removal tool removes both the pin and ring in seconds without damage to the tube or tube sheet it was installed in. Simply screw the spear stud into the installed pin, dislodge the pin with the slide hammer, screw the spear into the ring, then use the slide hammer to pull out all the pieces. If required, a new plug can then be reinstalled in the same place!
