Tube Tech was contracted by an international integrated energy and chemical company in South Africa to remove fouling from five of its 10-year-old furnaces.
The firm was experiencing a costly drop in production as the furnaces were having to burn longer to achieve temperature.
The plant was directed to Tube Tech’s Robotic Convection Bank Technology by the furnace OEM and this technology was chosen for an in-depth clean.
The technology is globally proven to remove more fouling from heat transfer assets than any other available technology on the market. It can remove fouling from anywhere in the convection section, with arms which reach between the tubes to all levels with pinpoint accuracy.
The four-day operation per furnace comprised of a three-strong Tube Tech team. Throughout the process, our technicians monitored the effluent and ensured furnace integrity was maintained.
