Tube Tech has developed its own system which restores Apex Air Cooled Condensers from the plenum area, using extended lance technology and an bespoke engineered head, which controls the pressure and directs flow on to the tubes, preventing damage. It is proven to be the most effective and quickest system on the market to restore thermal efficiency.
Despite the short notice, Tube Tech swiftly deployed a team of three technicians to the site. Using the specially designed system, the team were able to remove 90%+ fouling from the condenser in just a few hours.
Deposits had accumulated on the first few rows of tubes, so working from below and accessing these areas directly was critical for removing fouling and restoring the asset’s functionality. Furthermore, our system ensured that the operator was not in a direct line of hot air and steam escaping the condenser, unlike some other systems that are fixed to the outside of the condenser.
Tube Tech’s vast apex air cooled condenser experience and speed of deployment and cleaning were critical to the success of this project.
