Heat exchangers are vital components in plants in the aluminium, chemical, oil industry, food production and environmental technology sectors. Heat exchangers have long been a maintenance nightmare when it comes to tube cleaning. Heat exchanger downtime means lost production and lost revenues. It is not at all uncommon for the tubes in these units to become solidly plugged with deposits.
Hence, it is mandatory to have a heat exchanger in good working condition at all time. Hence it is required to clean internal and external tube bundles and remove very hard deposits in internal pipes by hydro blasting. Our technology will improve the operating efficiency of your heat exchanger, and increase the flow rate of your pipe system back to its original condition. Our aim is to increase your production with our services and technology through cleaning efficiency and time saving at shutdowns.
To improve the performance of fouled heat exchangers requires that the tubes be cleaned Periodically. Each time the tube deposits, sedimentation, bio fouling and obstructions are removed, the tube surfaces are returned almost to bare metal, providing the tube itself with a new life cycle.
In false consideration of cost saving, some people use Chemicals cleaning method (i.e. acid etc.) & mechanical cleaning methods (i.e. brushes, metal/plastic scrapers, abrasive balls) for tube cleaning of heat exchanger. But this type of conventional methods are expensive in long period, takes longer for the operation to be completed, and the subsequent disposal of the chemicals, an environmental hazard, creates its own set of problems. In chemicals cleaning method, it has also been found quite frequently that some residual material will still need to be removed by mechanical cleaning methods. During this kind of conventional methods of cleaning, there is also a gradual erosion of tube metal, which ultimately reduces the life of heat exchanger tubes.
