Tube Expanders

Tube expanders for installing tubes in heat exchangers, boilers and chillers

Boiler Tube Expanders

In September 1892, an inventor and manufacturer named Gustav Wiedeke began a small manufacturing business in a modest building at the rear of his Dayton, Ohio home. Today, over 100 years later, Wiedeke Dayton has become Elliott Tool Technologies Ltd. due to Mr. Wiedeke’s efforts.
The Wiedeke business continued to operate as a family enterprise for the next 32 years. By this time, Wiedeke products had earned a worldwide reputation for excellence in the industries they served. Wiedeke tools were innovative enough to be covered by various patents and trademarks.
In 1916, William Elliott also recognized the need and opportunity in the industry for efficient tube cleaning equipment. Operating plants in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, the company went through several company name iterations (Lagonda Springfield and Elliott Springfield) and eventually became known as the Elliott Company. By the late 1960’s, Elliott Company also enjoyed a worldwide reputation for its cleaning and turbomachinery products. And in 1969, acquired the Gustav Wiedeke Company.
Today we are a private company known as Elliott Tool Technologies. Boasting self-directed work teams, exceptional customer service, and a continued commitment to producing tube tools Gustav Wiedeke and William Swan Elliott would be proud of.
Elliott Tool Technologies is proud to represent 125 years of manufacturing, sales, and engineering experience.
