CCR platformers / Combined Feed Exchangers were introduced to remote controlled Internal Rotary Inspection System (IRIS) standard tube polishing technology
A Canadian site was concerned over their CCR platformers’ VCFE tube integrity as traditional contractors that used water jetting / chemicals could not achieve IRIS (ultrasonic) inspection standards.
The site needed to accurately determine tube wall thickness to anticipate asset life.
A Capex replacement of this multi-million dollar heat exchanger looked inevitable.
However, an existing Tube Tech client recommended our services to the Canadian site.
A good first impression was needed as this was Tube Tech’s first ever contract in Canada / N America. A bespoke method was developed, fully tested and successfully applied to their CCR platformers.
