A forged tubesheet is commonly made from a round disc forging with holes drilled to accept the tubes or pipes in an accurate location and pattern relative to one another. The tubesheets are used to support and isolate tubes in heat exchangers and boilers or to support filter elements. Tubes are attached to the tubesheet by hydraulic pressure or by roller expansion. A tubesheet may be covered in a cladding material which serves as a corrosion barrier and insulator.
FCI manufactures forged tubesheets from a variety of material grades from our on-site raw material inventory. We are capable of producing tubesheets to any customer requirement.
