Robotic Technology for Fired Heaters
The Tube Tech International fired heater and furnace cleaning service is recognised by world leading refining and petrochemical companies as the best technology to efficiently clean fired heaters.
Our robotic fired heater cleaning technology replaces traditional fired heater cleaning techniques which include: chemical cleaning, water jetting, abrasive shot blasting and dry ice.
- The use of robotics allows cleaning to be conducted remotely, removing technicians from the line of fire.
- Our innovative methods reduce the size of hole needed for man entry, from a 1m x 1m access point to a 250cm x 250cm access hole. Once set-up is complete, technicians are removed, and remote cleaning takes place.
The cleaning lance is computer controlled and slides down between the tubes, cleaning deep between them.
The proximity of the cleaning head to the fouling means that it easily removes the hardest types of fouling such as cement, sulphur, and concrete like deposits.
The Robot has been developed with different blast mediums in mind.
