Introducing Our Newly Designed Tube Bundle Roller

Utilizing the design and function input we received from an industry leading petrochemical refinery, Gerlinger Carrier developed the original concept for the Bundle Pallet Rotator (BPR). While this innovative design proved incredibly successful at meeting our customers' needs for a decade, we've now completed the redesign for our refined and newly renamed Tube Bundle Roller (TBR).

The Tube Bundle Roller in Action

The Tube Bundle Roller Offers Improved Mobility & Convenience

Whether moving from refinery tower extraction locations to the wash pad for cleaning, or to repair facilities for maintenance, the TBR offers a unique and practical load pallet option for the transportation of tube bundles.

Our new TBR design offers increased efficiency in the transportation of bundles by requiring less machinery to safely haul fragile and expensive parts throughout your worksite. The TBR features the ability to keep the bundle onboard and hydraulically rotate the bundle for improved ease of cleaning. Our innovative new design also includes the proper alignment of tubes, so the TBR operator can place the tubes back into position on the extractor machine.

The TBR provides adjustability, perfect for meeting a variety of tube bundle designs and sizes, and more maintenance-free components. Strong and reliable, the TBR is box welded with rugged internal gusseting that's built to withstand punishment. A reinforced frame features multiple cross members, and maintenance is simplified with easy access to lubrication points. With options for corrosive resistant coatings to help protect against harsh environmental factors, the TBR offers the lasting durability required to continue serving refineries for the next decade and beyond.
