CTI offers two basic types
of sleeving for the repair of condensers and
heat exchangers. Besides
condensers, these patented tube repair techniques
have successfully been applied to a wide variety
of exchangers - fin-fan air coolers, process
shell-and-tube exchangers, hydrogen coolers,
HP feedwater heaters and many more.
For those units suffering from inlet-end erosion,
Stress Corrosion Cracking, crevice corrosion
or any problems related to the tube-ends, CTI
offers its most cost-effective tube repair, the
CTI Shield/Seal™, also known as a tube
insert or ferrule. Although Shields are typically only 6" - 12" long,
some applications have required Shield lengths up to 14 feet!
Unfortunately, some exchangers suffer from full-length problems. In this case,
CTI Full Length Tube Liners™ can be a very attractive alternative to
a partial or full retube.
