.7
IHTE How Does it Work
Principle - Tube yield
strength is reduced
significantly when heated to
1800oF.
Coil is inserted into the stub
Stub is heated via induction
Expansion is restricted by
the tube sheet.
Stub yields.
Drum material grain
structure unchanged

Two Methods / Processes
Heat and PullSM
Suitable for most applications.

Heat and ShrinkSM


Primarily for drums without seating grooves.
Also in some limited access applications.
