Tube Tech’s Bespoke Cleaning Technology Delivers Success at Chemical Plant.

An International chemical company based in South Wales recently contacted Tube Tech International to clean pipes that were suffering from an unusual sticky plastic residue build-up. The plant needed a bespoke solution that caused minimal disruption as the fouling was causing a contamination of the product.

The chemical company was suffering the effects of a build-up of sticky latex-like plastic sticks on the barrel walls. This was causing a contamination of the product and required immediate attention. The fouling type is relatively unusual, so the client required a bespoke approach that removed the debris from the pipes, whilst maintaining the integrity of the asset. The client has previously instructed Tube Tech to clean the application, and a solution had been created to solve this specific application.

After receiving the request from the client, we mobilised a team of fouling removal technicians, who had previously completed the same job, to attend the site. Tube Tech’s in-house R&D team has developed and perfected a bespoke method of removing the contaminant in the most time-efficient and productive way. A custom water jetting head attached to a semi flexible hose was used, which was then fed through a specially designed safety and captivation flange. The clean was complete within just one day and the sticky plastic residue was removed effectively. The risk of contamination has now been removed, and the client is extremely happy with the results.

We are pleased to have created a bespoke solution for our client. We pride ourselves on being able to clean even the most unusual or severe fouling, which is made possible by our inhouse R&D team who are constantly testing and innovating new technologies. We have achieved great results for our client; CO2 emissions will be reduced in the long-term and the client will see significant savings having ensured that its assets are performing optimally.
