Specialty Tool is the Premier North and South American distributor for Haskel International and offers a wide range of equipment designed for hydraulic expansion of heat exchanger tubes into tube sheets through the direct application of high internal hydraulic pressure. This equipment constitutes the HydroSwage product line.
Specialty Tool Services (STS) specializes in Hydraulic expansion, which is the method used to expand heat exchanger tubes using direct pressure to expand the tube forming it into the tubesheet joint. This process is also used in Strain Control Sleeving, where an insert is installed into the parent tube over the damaged area and hydraulically expanded to get full contact with parent and seals the problem areas, resulting in an extended life to the exchanger along with cost savings. STS provides tube technology services globally.
