Tube testers are a simple tool for quickly and accurately finding leaks in tubes. These testers are ideal for both OEM fabricators and Contractors. They can be used to find leaks in small and large vessels, such as Heat Exchangers and Boilers. A leaking tube can be detected in less than 10 seconds, saving labour cost and increasing your productivity.
Tube testers are available in two types.
Vacuum Tube Tester
Pressure Tube Tester
Extensions are available in different lengths, for all our Tube Testers for water box and channel head applications. Vacuum tube testers are the most popular since the kit will test a wide range of tube sizes without purchasing extra seal sets.
