Tube Sleeving

B&W's tube sleeving system is a viable alternative to tube plugging and a cost savings strategy for utility, pulp and paper and petrochemical industries. Our sleeves are thin-walled metallic tube inserts made of highly durable alloys. The sleeves are expanded -- either mechanically, hydraulically or a hybrid of the two -- into existing damaged tube ends, adding years of service to your equipment.

Our tube sleeving service offers tube-end protection in heat exchangers, condensers and tubular air heaters. It also:

  • Restores plugged or leaking tubes to service
  • Reduces prospect of inlet end tube erosion and/or corrosion
  • Bridges cracks or failures in discrete locations
  • Restores structural integrity
  • Minimizes flow reduction
