The third step is the complete removal of the worn tube from the condenser with the Armstrong pneumatic Stripper™. Alternate tubes in alternate rows are first pulled with the Armstrong hydraulic tube puller. Then, an operator follows along behind the tube puller to completely remove the tubes with this tool. Using a pneumatic vs hydraulic tool reduces the risk of oil spills.
Sample tubes: While nondestructive testing is good sometimes have a sample tube removed is the best choice. Our device does not crush the tube as other devices do and the tube is removed still round. With tooth marks every about 6 inches. In tight spaces you can extract a couple of feet, mark it, cut it then pull some more.
We have 2 Models, a single and a double acting units. The single is the lightest (~40lbs/18kg) tube extracting device currently available and can be operated by one person in tight spaces. Can be passed through a access port in most water boxes.
Single Unit: Cycle Rate: 2 tubes per minute (30 ft. Long) Machine Weight: ~40lbs/18kg (a tool balancer) Air Requirements: 100 CFM at 100 PSI
Double Unit: Cycle Rate: 4 tubes per minute (30 ft. Long) Machine Weight: 100 lbs. (a tool balancer or balancing pole is supplied) Air Requirements: 200 CFM at 100 PSI
