Stainless Steel Wire Brushes

Flapper Wheels

(Top of photograph) The Flapper Wheels are another "once in, once out" method of tube sheet cleaning. Again, they are sized to the tube sheet hole diameter.


Ball Burrs

The Carbide Ball Burrs are used to clean the support plate holes before installing the new tubes. The Carbide Burr has a right-hand cut and a left-hand helix to prevent grabbing. It is also double-cut to prevent premature breakage. The carbide ball is designed to remove rust, calcium carbonate and other foreign matter from the support plate hole. The Burr is sized .015" larger than the new tube, thus establishing the support plate hole to its original diameter. We stock burrs for 5/8" to 1 1/4" diameter tubes.
