convection tube pulling

Edmonton Exchanger’s Convection Tube Puller was custom designed and fabricated in-house, and is used on-site for heater convection tube pulling and pushing applications.

It measures 75 feet in length and features a 70 foot pulling length, a 60,000 pound pulling force and a 30,000 pound pushing force. It has the capacity to handle return bend tubes up to 12” in diameter in any orientation ranging from flat to fully vertical.

The Convection Tube Puller’s “C-style” cradle allows for forklift loading and unloading without disconnect from a crane. It is operated via remote control and can be self-balanced in two directions. This is a significant advancement over the traditional method from a safety perspective.
