Tube Tech Delivers Instant Payback for Global Oil and Gas Giant

The Challenge

Tube Tech was contracted by a leading oil and gas company working at the forefront of global energy innovation.

The team was tasked with the cleaning of an Ethylene Furnace F07 at the company’s facility in Moerdijk, Holland. Tube Tech first worked at the facility in 2015.

Thanks to the fantastic results delivered by our unique engineered cleaning technology and experienced onsite operating team, the client has contracted us to return and clean the rest of the available furnaces.

The Solution

The furnaces had either never been cleaned before or had been cleaned by other contractors using different techniques that failed to access anywhere near the 90%+ surface area that our technology is capable of.

Following mobilisation of one day from our UK base to the client’s facility in Moerdijk, the ethylene furnace clean was completed, on time, in eight days – including three days for site inductions, equipment setup, mobilisation and de-mobilisation.

Our team employed the patented robotic fired heater system to solve the fouling issues that were causing the facility’s Ethylene Furnace F07 to under perform, costing the company money and causing excess emissions.

Tube Tech’s team was able to return near 100% heat duty to the furnace and, in doing so, provide an instant payback on the cost of our services.
