Effectively cleaning Fired Heater and Furnace Convection Section using innovative cleaning techniques

Tube Tech’s fired heater / furnace convection section cleaning service is recognised by world leading refining and petrochemical companies as the most effective technology to achieve OEM performance clean fired heaters.

Fired heaters are often difficult to clean as most fired heater cleaning methods are only able to reach what the operator can see. Access deep inside and between the banks of finned tube rows has never been achieved until now.

Tube Tech’s fired heater cleaning services can help improve fired heater performance by significantly increasing feed throughput and reducing CO2 emissions.

Using robot cleaning technology Tube Tech is able to clean deep in between both square and triangular pitch rows of convection tubes. Delivering an unprecedented level of cleanliness in record times, Tube Tech’s robotic fired heater cleaning technology replaces traditional fired heater cleaning techniques which include: chemical cleaning, water jetting, abrasive shot blasting and dry ice.

The fired heater robotic cleaning services provided by Tube Tech are able to remove extremely hard deposits deep within every tube row while also providing before, during and after inspection reports.

To find out more about Tube Tech’s robotic fired heater cleaning and inspection service please review our fired heater case studies below.

Using the fired heater robotics we completely debottlenecked the furnace and it is no longer the limiter to the unit. Our GM is very impressed with the cleaning job. Thanks again and we are looking forward to working with you guys in the future.

The service they provide, in my opinion, is second to none. Technically and technologically Mr Watson’s knowledge surpasses any company I have personally come into contact with that supply this kind of service.

To stay ‘ahead of the game’ Tube Tech invest well in the latest technology to be able to supply a service which, to the refiner, is more cost effective as the equipment they use is better than the competition’s at providing the desired results.

I have personally used Tube Tech over many years on long term contracts for both hands on cleaning and consultation services and find them efficient, reliable and knowledgeable.

Based on natural gas purchase savings I estimate Tube Tech cleaning method saved an additional $200,000 over the first year compared to the normal mechanical water jet clean. I felt Tube Tech were a great company to work with, from what I observed the supervision and personnel were always focused on the task in hand – completing ahead of the proposed time in the safest manner. I look forward to working with Tube Tech again.
