Thomas C. Wilson Fire and Water Tube Expanders provide rolling and flaring in a single operation, offering superior maneuverability. Whether you are maintaining water tube boilers, fire tube boilers, superheaters, economizers, or air heaters, we have a solution for you. All of our tube expanders are made from the highest quality chrome nickel alloy steel that is specially treated to ensure a long service life.

Wilson Fire Tube Expanders are designed for use in boiler rooms, boiler repair shops, railroads, Scotch Marine Boilers, as well as for general rolling in fire tube boilers where flaring is not required. Our extensive selection of fire tube expanders offer broad capabilities, including simultaneous flaring and rolling with minimum indentation and as a preliminary to beading operations. When used with reverse mandrels and extension drives, Wilson Expanders work well for far end rolling. Our specialized Wilson Beading Expander offers three operations in one tool, including expanding, beading, and re-rolling. The dynamic Wilson Hydraulic Tube Cutter quickly cuts tubes in the front of tube sheets.
