Plug a Leaking Heat Exchanger Tube

Heat exchanger tube plugging is a crucial maintenance task that helps prevent costly equipment failures and ensures safety in industrial plants. But when and how should you plug a leaking tube, and why is it important?

01 - When

Tubes with leaks, corrosion, or damage should be plugged immediately to prevent further damage to the equipment or environment.

02 - How

High-pressure tube plugs are commonly used for tube plugging, which are inserted into the tube and expanded to create a #seal.

03 - Why

Plugging tubes helps prevent leaks, reduce energy loss, and prolong equipment life, ultimately saving costs and ensuring safety in industrial plants.
