Mark 7 Rover Launched: Our Most Advanced Cleaning System to Date


Patented Convection Section Cleaning System Launched

We are pleased to announce the much-anticipated launch of our next-generation Mark 7 fired heater rover system.

The automated system is capable of remotely eradicating more than 90% of convection section fouling.

Developed in-house at our R&D facility in Rayleigh, UK, the Mark 7 rover holds two patents. It can automatically crawl over intermediate tube support plates and across tubes, requiring fewer access points and enhancing its ability to access hard-to-reach areas. This defining feature enables the system to clean more in less time.

The new system features lidar technology for distance sensing and detects blockages or obstructions. Live HD footage provides technicians with real-time feedback from within the convection bank providing an accurate representation of its condition and any areas of concern. Images and videos can also be used for reporting and analysis.

Commenting on the development of the technology, Derek Sumsion, R&D Manager, said:

“We have been developing the Mark 7 rover to be the safest, most effective and intelligent system on the market capable of restoring convection section efficiency to design standards. Becoming part of the IGS portfolio of solutions has provided us with access to broader spectrum of advance technologies and expertise which has made the development of this system possible.”

The Mark 7 rover restores fired heater convection sections back to original design thermal efficiency regardless of the level or type of fouling, dramatically reducing CO2 emissions.

Scott Donson, VP – International Business Development and Technical Operations at Tube Tech, commented:

“The launch of the Mark 7 rover indicates a significant step-change in heat transfer efficiency solutions and provides facilities with a much safer, effective, smarter, and sustainable fouling removal service.”
