B-Series – (For 1″ & Larger Boiler Tubes)
The B-1000 Boiler Expander
Is recommended for use in limited access space such as water boxes and small diameter drums. It is available with the Airetool short series mandrels for applications with severe access restrictions.
The B-2000 Boiler Expander
Uses Airetool’s patented drift ball bearing thrust collar for precise flare setting and allows for torque controlled wall reduction. The unique depth adjustable ball bearing drift thrust collar enables the B-2000 Series Expander to be positioned into the tube at exactly the same setting every time.
The B-3000 Boiler Expander
Is a straight roll expander for non-flared boiler tubes and boiler tube sheets or drums thicker than 2 3/4″ (70 mm).
Firetube Boiler Expanders
The FTE Series Expander
Is a fast feeding straight roll expander, available in 2″, 2 1/2″ and 3″, 10 to 14 gauge models. With a reversable collar spacer these tools cover 3/8″ to 1″ tube sheet thicknesses. A metal roll retainer keeps the rolls in place when the mandrel is removed.
The FTF Series Expander
Has the same size ranges as the FTE series and shares many of the same parts. The offset flare rolls eliminate the ridge produced by competitive models. The thrust collar provides a uniform flared tube end.
The RBE Series Expander
Is an expander that beads the tube as it rolls it into the tube sheet. Also available in 2″, 2 1/2″ and 3″ sizes, it covers gauge sizes from 10 ga. to 13 ga. The ease and speed of this tool compared to a beading chisel is a real cost saver!
