Tube Tech has completed a project to clean an Apex Air Cooled Condenser at a power plant based in Lincolnshire, UK. The company’s other sites use Tube Tech’s cleaning services and have seen fantastic results, so the plant contacted our team based on recommendations.
A waste-to-energy plant required a solution to unblock its condenser tubes which were heavily fouled. The plant has a capacity of 256,000 tonnes per year, and any loss in performance due to asset fouling could prove costly.
One of Europe’s largest refineries contacted Tube Tech to solve a fouling challenge. The refinery contributes an estimated £60 million each year to the local economy and will also house the UK’s first low-carbon hydrogen facility.
A long-standing client of Tube Tech required cleaning of its Apex Air Cooled Condenser (AACC) to remove fouling and debris and to ensure maximum efficiency and power generation.
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.
Tube Tech deployed its patented fouling removal robot to tackle fouling within a steam methane reformer furnace’s convection bank tubes.
Safety was paramount when one of Britain’s newest power stations chose descaling and inspection specialist Tube Tech to clean its vast Air Cooled Condenser (ACC).
Cleaning heat exchangers on the world’s largest FPSO floating platform in Nigeria to IRIS standard first time every time
This was the first time the gas coolers had been cleaned for a detailed integrity inspection since the unit was built three years ago.
Tube Tech was contracted by a liquified natural gas (LNG) plant in Nigeria. The plant required IRIS and Eddy current inspection work on various heat exchangers.
A 456 MW combined cycle gas turbine power and water desalination plant needed to find an industrial cleaning contractor who could clean the condenser tubes within 5 of their heat recovery units during a short shutdown period.
