CRD216SS Time Delay Heated Tubing Expander


This stainless steel, time delay heated tubing expander allows barbed fittings to be installed in stiffer tubing that would otherwise split from the fitting insertion. A controlled internal expanding operation on the semi-rigid (nylon, ethylene, teflon, ect.) tubing occurs at 150° - 350°F. With the special time delay option, manufacturing and process engineers can validate the repeatability of the tube expansion. This will eliminate variability between operators. The CRD216SS flexible tubing expander goes one step further and has a fully stainless steel base. The powerful air cylinder that performs the expanding operation is driven by a foot pedal. After expansion, a secure fit is formed as the tubing cools and recovers to its original size.
