Over 99% of the contamination was removed including cleaning and polishing around the hairpin bends for the first time. As well as returning the hairpin heat exchangers very close to ‘as new’ condition, the treatment was completed in less than two days instead of the six usually required by standard pressure-jetting techniques.
BP’s Maintenance Area Planner. Fuels and Utilities, said: “Previous cleaning of the crude exchanger did not make as much difference to performance because bends were not cleaned. After Tube Tech’s involvement the throughput was greatly improved.”
He added: “Technically Tube Tech is one of the most professional companies in the field and the end product is exceptional. The Tube Tech approach initially costs more but it is a nothing compared against the substantial cost savings gained.”
