Raising The Bar
With their low emissions, minimal environmental impact and high energy efficiency design features, the Vertical Combined Feed and Effluent Exchanger (VCFE/Texas Tower) is often the unsung hero of many industrial processes, with the detrimental effects of fouling falling into the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ category. In this case, our client was experiencing an extreme pressure drop from the VCFE’s original performance. Due to many blockages, the tower was running at 1.4 bar, compared to the unit’s capability of 0.4 bar.
TTIL is the only company with an extensive suite of technologies and methods to clean and inspect all shell and tube Texas Towers. The underperforming VCFE was solved using TTIL’s specialist Texas Tower cleaning equipment, dramatically improving performance and associated energy savings.
