Designed for use in conjunction with the collet style tube pullers this compact powerful machine will enable the operator to extract and flatten tubes from condensers at speeds between 10 and 70 metres per minute once the expansion joint has been broken.
When used in conjunction with our high speed Collet Pullers the Tube Traktor takes the effort out of condensor tube pulling.
The Tube Traktor represents the latest evolution in high speed tube extracting equipment. Designed for use in conjunction with the collet style tube pullers this compact powerful machine will enable the operator to extract and flatten tubes from condensers at speeds between 10 and 70 metres per minute once the expansion joint has been broken. Made from the highest quality materials this reliable dependant machine incorporates, quality hydraulic motors, solid 1 piece pulling rolls machined from tool steel and hardened for extended life, body components machined from marine grade aluminium for high strength,
fully sealed bearings for hour’s of trouble free operation, and incorporates a built in lifting eye and handle.
The Tube Traktors versatility is enhanced by the fact that it can run from almost any low pressure high flow hydraulic pump. The Tractors ideal operating pressure is 137 bar (2000 psi) with flows between 20lpm to 100lpm depending on the desired pulling speed. It is preferred that the pump have a pressure compensating bi-directional proportional flow control fitted for safe, accurate and efficient use of the pump and the Tube Traktor.
The pump also has forward and reverse flow as occasionally the Tube Tractor will need to be reversed. This will require a 3 position (Forward / neutral / Reverse) joystick mounted to the Tube Traktor for ease of operation.
Originally designed to remove and flatten non ferrous tubes from 5/8" to 1 ¼" OD the Tube Traktor can be used to extract ferrous tubes from 5/8" to 1 ½" OD using radius shaped rolls to sized to fit each tube.
