To achieve a high standard of condenser cleaning Tube Tech can utilise a variety of cleaning systems which will improve the vacuum and heat transfer rate.
Tube Tech darTT
This condenser cleaning system propels made to measure, metal scraper bullets down the condenser tubes using high volume but not high-pressure water, removing thin, hard eggshell scale, sludge and silt deposits.
When cleaning condenser tubes Tube Tech can also offer a simultaneous inspection service such as an Eddy current or IRIS inspection to measure tube-wall thickness and highlight excessive wear.
Cleaning condenser tubes restores vacuum and MW output, which in turn provides lower CO2 emissions per Megawatt.
Tube Tech can meet and invariably exceed strict time restrictions on condenser tube cleaning and has also cleaned condensers in such a short space of time that the neighbouring condenser train can be isolated to take the load temporarily whilst the other is being cleaned. This operation has been known to take only three hours thereby allowing the plant to continue operating without reducing production.
