HydroPro  was established in 1997 to help advance hydraulic expansion technology,  and take it from the undeveloped process that it was, and make sure it  would reach its full potential. Three individuals with extensive  industry experience elected to start the small company with a single  focus, hydraulic tube expansion.

These  individuals knew that hydraulic expansion was without a doubt the best  way to expand tube-to-tubesheet joints in heat exchangers, but the  current companies making this technology were completely out of touch  with what fabricators needed for it to be a successful process. Until  that time, the primary challenge when using hydraulic expansion was a  lack of consistency and reliability of the process. HydroPro corrected  both issues with their patented dual Cam/Segment Assembly design and  their direct pressure output power supply.

Fast-forward  20 years later and the fact that HydroPro has stayed true to the  original plan of improving on the technology has ensured fabricators in  more than 30 countries can reliably use their equipment and tooling  daily in production situations. They’ve also developed advanced  solutions for on-site exchanger repair that are utilized by companies in  nearly every industrial industry, including retubing, sleeving, and plugging.
