The company working for the refinery in Qatar had seen Tube Tech’s Rover (ROV) system online and in the field with other clients in Qatar, and was impressed with the technology’s ability to reach in between tube rows to achieve a thorough clean. They also commented on the ROV’s ability to address any unknown fouling deposit characteristics.
Tube Tech were able to swiftly mobilise a team of technicians to the site and complete the entire job within 10 days. This included mobilisation, a Covid isolation period, site set-up, cleaning, final inspections, compulsory rest days, site breakdown, and demobilisation.
The client was impressed with the professionalism and speed of the work carried out, and the final inspections showed that the fouling had been removed from in between the tube rows, restoring heat transfer capability and improving the overall productivity and of the convection section.
