FTE Series Straight Roll Firetube Expanders
Airetool's Product Design Engineers have developed an economical, yet durable firetube boiler expander with a flip collar to accommodate tube sheets 3/8" to 1" thick. This unique design with increased expansion range, reduces expander inventory, reducing operating cost. As with all Airetool boiler expanders, a metal bushing roll retainer keeps the rollers in place when the mandrel is removed.

FTF Series Flaring Firetube Expanders
Airetool's FTF Series Firetube flaring boiler expander is a three-roller design to compensate for oval tube sheet holes. The expander's offset flare rolls eliminate a ridge being formed into the tube, eliminating a secondary rolling of the tube. Increased expansion reduces your inventory. The ball bearing thrust collar provides uniform flared tubes coupled with torque control capabilities. Front and rear metal roll retainers retain the roll when the mandrel is removed from the expander.
