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.

Investment Opportunities

Tube Tech is seeking investment for a wide range of exciting cleaning and inspection technologies all of which will have a dramatic impact on the heavy industrial sector. Please contact us for a full list of investment opportunities. A few examples are outlined below…

LIVE blasting and painting of a ship hull below the waterline,  while the vessel is under way (Reduced dry dock)

Featuring: live and below the water line a) inspection and corrosion location, blast to bare metal, inspection and confirmation of blast standard, application of tried and tested 30 second Fast Cure One Coat System (out lasts epoxy). All work is performed below the water line at 10 knots without the need for dry dock. All prototypes work.

Heat Recovery and Lagging Coating

To develop a coating that once applied to a hot surface; stores and converts heat into re-useable energy. e.g. heat exchanger shells, any live process lines etc.
Intended to replace or minimise lagging. Proprietary knowledge exists and the coating is very viable.
