Tube Tech Comment
Mike Watson, Technical and Managing Director : “This challenge brought out the best in all of us and our suppliers. Trial after trial eventually provided us a solution that achieved results way beyond anyone expectations. An exceptionally safe and successful contract was completed in an incredible 5 x 10 hour shifts.
This new technology paves the way for mechanical cleaning of any shell side, of any heavily fouled square pitch exchanger, be it Crude, FCC, even polymer deposits. It will be of great benefit to many refineries and industries world wide.
The deposits removed from both shell and tube side were shown to contain a great deal of iron oxide and heavy hydrocarbons. Our client reports that the shell and tube side clean has seen a dramatic improvement in the heat transfer rate between the two vertical combined feed/effluent exchangers.
On a personal note, the biggest buzz I get, working with clients, is when they genuinely commit to the importance of team work, honesty and seamless communication. This client was one of the best we have ever had the pleasure to work with”.
