    • SSHE Tube Refurbishing and Stocking Program
      Martin Brothers has a refurbishing program to take your worn-out chrome plated heat exchanger tubes and refurbish them to a like-new condition. We maintain the world’s largest inventory of refurbished tubes ready to ship. We have an exchange program where we ship your tubes out immediately and you return your exchange tube at your convenience. This keeps your down time to a minimum.

      Process to Refurbish and Re-Chrome Heat Exchanger Tubes:

      1. Inspect outside diameter and flange of the tube and recommend repairs if required.
      2. Inspect inside diameter and determine if repair can be made. Each time the tube is refurbished the wall thickness gets thinner. This inspection estimates how thin the wall will become and advises the customer of our recommendations. We do not re-chrome tubes that are worn beyond factory recommendations.
      3. Inspect o-ring and seal areas at each end of tube and repair or replace as necessary.
      4. Inspect machining detail on both ends including flanges, threads, locking lugs, and clips to ensure proper fit and sealing with the SSHE system.
      5. Strip out the old chrome plating.
      6. Hone the inside diameter until clean and buff to very fine micro finish.
      7. Re-inspect inside diameter for any grooves or galling before chrome plating.
      8. Chrome plate to 0.008” thickness per wall.
      9. Hone inside diameter to high gloss finish.
      10. Complete final inspection of entire tube to original equipment manufacturers specifications.
