About Tube Tech

For more than 30 years Tube Tech 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, often referred to as unfired and fired assets. Tube Tech 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.

Meeting the Challenge of Process Disruption by Challenging Industry Norms

When production efficiency is affected due to unforeseen fouling, the impact on your profits can be massive. Tube Tech 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.

Rapid Response.
When every second is critical!

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 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.

Tube Tech’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 keyway for future fouling thereby increasing energy consumption, reduced flow and performance.

Tube Tech’s research and development protocol has been recognised at the highest levels of industry, and in 2018/19 a consortium, led by Tube Tech’s R&D team received multi-million-Euro EU Commission Horizon 2020 research and innovation Instrument Programme funding to research and develop ground-breaking solutions for the wider industry.
