The Dri-Seal Tubeplate Protection System forms an
impermeablebarrier between the tubeplate / tube ends and the heat
transfermedium. All systems consist of two primary components:-
The tubeplate faade, complete with a bondednon-porous backing is
drilled to match the original tubeplateconfiguration
The tube insert, which has two important roles toplay. Firstly it
protects the tube ends from erosion andcorrosion, and secondly,
it’s secure fit within the tube end isused to fix the faade in
The Dri-Seal Tubeplate Protection System can be used in old andnew
heat exchangers alike, imparting a new lease of life to theunit, or
in the case of new units extending the period of timebefore repair
or refurbishment is required.
The Dri-Seal faade is available in two main forms for
The Armaguard metallic system utilises aneffective interference fit
design, and is available in a widerange of materials including
copper-alloys and titanium.
The Plastiguard non-metallic system,incorporating the ClipLock
design, is designed for use incorrosive environments such as
The use of resistant plastic materials results in a
morecost-effective solution to the more exotic materials
available.As the faade and inserts can be replaced as and when
necessary,life extension could very well be indefinite.
