Developing Innovative Technology – Research and Development

All the time, refineries face a growing number of challenges – and these challenges are getting more complex. At last, help is now available from Tube Tech: Here at Tube Tech, we have developed a range of extremely efficient and effective customised cleaning technologies which have transformed refinery operations and generated massive savings for clients around the world.

DELIVERING GREATER AND FASTER RETURNS ON INVESTMENT.

Tube Tech International International’s world-class portfolio of robotic cleaning techniques ensures you get a significant return on investment every time.
Clients view Tube Tech International’s services as an investment not a cost – providing better results, delivered safely and faster.

GLOBALLY PATENTED ROBOTIC CLEANING SYSTEMS

Tube Tech International has developed a variety of robotic cleaning technologies. Robotics cleans your heat transfer equipment more thoroughly with almost 100% surface contact. Robotic cleaning systems overcome many safety issues and reduces the need for man entry.

GLOBALLY PATENTED EXCHANGER CLEANING SYSTEMS

Unique technology for both Koch twisted tube and shell and tube heat exchangers.

ASSET INTEGRITY IRIS STANDARD CLEANLINESS GUARANTEED

IRIS standard cleanliness can be achieved guaranteed no matter what the deposits.

DETAILED DIGITAL ARCHIVES

A comprehensive digital record of each and every contract is provided. Clients receive a minute by minute report of on-site activities plus a thorough post-contract report detailing activities made before, during and after the contract, including digital images and video evidence.

MEETING THE CHALLENGE OF PROCESS DISRUPTION

For 30 years Tube Tech International has understood the impact of unforeseen or prolonged shutdowns that can potentially cost substantial loss in revenue, Simply because traditional cleaning methods do not remove tenacious fouling from inaccessible heat transfer and process assets. Two of the most common and indeed critical of these plant items are the internal and external tube surfaces of heat exchangers and fired heaters, oftenreferred to as unfired and fired assets. Tube Tech International delivers a specialist ‘engineered’ service using innovative technology that solves this costly dilemma with minimum downtime, resulting in unprecedented energy savings, process efficiency and reduced emissions culminating in a rapid return on investment and
greater profits.

UNLOCKING PREVIOUSLY UNTAPPED REVENUE BY CHALLENGING INDUSTRY NORMS

When production efficiency is affected due to unforeseen fouling, the impact on your profits can be massive. Tube Tech International solves these problems by quantifying the commercial, environmental and safety benefits to justify a bespoke approach. In other words, we brainstorm with you the benefits of our safer cleaning technologies, reducing downtime, cleaning to a higher standard, potentially with the asset left in-situ, using methods that avoid secondary waste and remove deposits. We remove even the most tenacious and inaccessible process deposits where others have tried and failed.

BESPOKE SOLUTIONS

You may be relying on systems that do not always deliver the results you need or expected! Our range of world-class technologies will deliver outstanding results. For more complex requirements, consultation with our technical team to quantify the benefits that can justify a more bespoke and cost effective solution, thereby unlocking those previously untapped savings and benefits.

HOW WE ACHIEVE MORE SAVINGS THAN ANY OTHER CONTRACTOR

Clean In Situ: Without exception, every installation in the world will have pulled multiple heat exchangers apart for cleaning and inspection purposes.
De-bottlenecking then becomes the big issue. There is an alternative: cleaning and inspecting in-situ which avoids further downtime during the bundle pulling operations. Our process minimises and avoids scaffolding, flat bed lorries, cranes, third party costs and other associated delays. Consider the savings of new gaskets, bolts and the substantial risk of damage in transit that means you can’t restart production. Consider the benefits In-Situ cleaning could make to your operations.

RAPID RESPONSE…

Depending on location, we can mobilise quickly, typically within 24 to 72 hours and we will attend with a team of experienced personnel and equipment either nationally or internationally. Tube Tech nternational has completed many successful projects throughout the world, and has operational bases in Europe and Houston, Texas.

CLEAN ASSETS EQUAL EFFICIENT OPERATIONS

How clean is clean? Are you currently accepting 30, 50, 60% clean as your company’s standard?
There is no API standard that exists to confirm how clean an asset is or should be. We take that burden and ensure you receive a fully operational asset that is at least 90% clean.

ASSET INTEGRITY IRIS STANDARD CLEANLINESS GUARANTEED

IRIS standard cleanliness can be achieved guaranteed no matter what the deposits.

Tube Tech International International’s robotic fired heater convection bank technology provides access to areas that conventional manual lancing methods can’t reach. Our unparalleled process doesn’t just clean, it gets the surface smooth too. Rough surfaces and remaining scale provides an unwelcome key way for future fouling thereby increasing energy consumption, reduced flow and performance.
