EGI HELP Solutions is proud to announce the completion of several turn key projects this Quarter. We have become a full service provider of hydraulic expansion services. We can provide our solutions in a variety of formats.
Tube to Tube sheet Expansions
EGI Help Solutions was contacted to provide high pressure tube to tube sheet expansions for a major Heat Exchanger manufacturer in the Houston market. The application consisted of 3,000 tube ends of 3/4" 12 bwg tubes in a 12" thick tube sheet. The expansions were completed using our Evolution EV-HS72 system in 4 shifts at 48,000 psi. Our Evolution bladder tooling worked flawlessly while having minimal spares usage to boot.
EGI Help Solutions completes sleeving job for major mid west industrial gas producer. The application to create a bridge over an area of suspected chloride stress cracking. This was accomplished using a sleeve that was insulated in the damaged area and then expanded on either side of the insulated zone. Using the Evolution bladder tooling we were able to expand a .575" OD Sleeve more than .070" of an inch. Over a period of 6 shifts EGI Help Solutions personnel installed some 1,500 - 24" long sleeves.
Full Length Liners
EGI Help Solutions completes full length lining of air cooler bundles. The application to install 400 full length Inconel 825 liners 31' long. Using the Evolution EV-SS30 sleeving system along with high pressure couplers, EGI Help personnel were able to install the liners in just 3-1/2 shifts. Once the liners were expanded they were trimmed flush with the parent tubes using our 1WTTC-1000 Krais One-Wheel tube cutters.
EGI Help Solutions provides consulting and technical support for Caribbean bauxite producer. The application to remove 400 carbon steel tubes 2" OD x 12 bwg x 40' long from heater bundle and subsequent re-tube. EGI Solutions provided a total tooling solution. While also providing on site technical support and supervision to local labor/staff to ensure a smooth job.

The next evolution in hydraulic tube expansion is here. For those of you familiar with some of our competitors offerings you already know about the need for multiple O-rings sizes, re-assembling segments from cut bands, bent cams, and expensive assembly tools. If you are new to hydraulic tube expansion the good news is we have eliminated those headaches.
Tru-Torq High Pressure Tube Plugs
Tru-Torq plugs provide superior seal coupled with ease of installation. They can provide sealing up to pressures of 6,000 psi when properly installed. Typical installation torque range of 25-50 ft/lbs range depending on the alloy material. Tru-Torq plugs are made from most alloys encountered in heat exchangers.
