Tube Tech’s U-Tube heat exchanger cleaning methodology managed to remove a blockage increasing ca. 20 to 90%
A radical new approach to cleaning notoriously tenacious scale within aluminium U-tubed furfural exchangers introduced substantial benefits at a UK refinery. Blockage removal from the U-tubes was increased from ca. 20 to 90%. Any potential damage to aluminium tubes was eliminated and the exchanger was cleaned in-situ. Downtime was reduced by three days which, in turn, reduced costs and improved performance.
