Series 22
Wilson's Series 22 Expander Tools were specially designed for use in boiler rooms, boiler repair shops, railroads, Scotch Marine Boilers, as well as, for all general rolling in fire tube boilers where flaring is not required. The over-sized Series 22 model is offered for use in opening up existing tube holes. A revolving thrust collar helps eliminate jamming and its compact designs allows for working close to walls or adjacent tubes. Three Roll- Non-Parallel Expanding-Straight or Oversized Roll Type

Series 116
Wilson's Series 116 Expanders offer four expanding rolls and two flare rolls and simultaneously flare and roll an unusually fine surface with a minimum amount of indentation by the flare rolls. This flaring operation works ideally for HRT and other fire tube boilers where final beading of tube ends is the practice. This Wilson Expander's self-retained rolls make it well-suited for use with reverse taper mandrels for far end tube expanding. Four Roll-Non-Parallel Expanding-Flare Roll Type

Series 28
Wilson's Series 28 Expanders simultaneously flare the tube as a preliminary to beading operations. The revolving thrust collar sets the tube and is notched to clear adjacent tubes if on close centers and works well in most HRT and other fire tube boilers. These Wilson Expanders are also popular for far end rolling when used in conjunction with reverse mandrels and extension drives. The expander range is taken at the front of the thrust collar.
