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.
Tube Tech was asked to salvage equipment previously deemed uncleanable after it was left in a wet yard for two years.
The convection section of a Primary Reformer Furnace was heavily fouled as it had never before been cleaned and fouling was affecting efficiency.
Following a previous On-line flare line cleaning success, Tube Tech provided a rapid mobilization to one of the world’s largest oil refineries to remove severe ammonium bi-sulphate fouling from within a severely restricted flare line.
Flow through two vertical combined feed exchangers (VCFEs/Texas Towers) at a middle eastern refinery of one of the world’s largest Arabian oil companies had become severely restricted. Just how restricted became apparent when Tube Tech’s cleaning teams started working on them.
Safety, speed and cleanliness were deemed the most important factors by the 230,00bpd (crude) and 17,000bpd (lubricant) French refinery.
