With USA Industries' Snap It installation and removal tools, the process of plugging your heat exchangers, boilers and condensers couldn't be easier! Now you can remove or eliminate problems caused by welded or hammer-driven tube plugs, such as: safety risks, inconsistent installation, unpredictable pressure-holding capacity, damage to tube sheets, holes and tubes, as well as time-consuming and expensive welding costs!

Note: Always puncture the tube before installing any plug to ensure that pressure cannot build up in the tube and cause the plugs to loosen or blow out. Never stand in front of any installed plug under pressure. Plugs ejected under pressure can cause serious bodily injury.

Tube Preparation Tools

Tube brushes are ideal for properly prepping your heat exchanger tubes for a tube plug. The brushes remove pitting and corrosion from inside the tube, allowing optimum sealing and holding forces for your Snap It tube plug. Because Snap It Jr. has a range of tube sizes that it can effectively seal, brush kits come with 3-4 brushes per kit. Use the smallest brush in your brush kit that effectively cleans and preps the tube. Snap It Sr. brushes are provided for the exact tube size ordered, ensuring a perfect fit. This step is absolutely crucial to ensuring you have the optimal seal with your tube plugs.
