Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers
Shell and tube heat exchangers have tubes that require periodic internal cleaning. By keeping the tubes free of deposits/fouling, the heat transfer and thus the efficiency of the heat exchanger will remain optimal.Read more
Heat exchanger tube cleaning
Shell and tube heat exchangers have tube bundles through which various types of liquids can pass. After a certain period of time, these tubes will have to be cleaned internally. Deposits in the tubes can lead to reduced heat transfer, which has a direct impact on the efficiency of the heat exchanger. There are many different types of shell and tube heat exchangers. This category is more about systems in the heavy industry, such as the (petro)chemical- and process industry.
Traditionally, many shell and tube heat exchangers are cleaned with high pressure. This is a logical choice for hard fouling. However, there are also other options for soft to medium hard deposits. Goodway Benelux offers 2 different low-pressure cleaning techniques, depending on various factors, one of the two techniques will offer the best result. In general, low pressure cleaning techniques are a lot more affordable, faster and safer than traditional options. Click on the links below to see exactly how the technique works:
- Mechanical cleaning by shooting through special projectiles
- Mechanical cleaning by means of high-speed rotating brushes
Tube cleaning with rotating brushes
For smaller heat exchangers, Goodway Benelux offers a technology with which heat exchanger tubes can be cleaned quickly, effectively and safely by means of rotating brushes. You can find more information in the video below.
Tube cleaning with projectiles
For larger (500+ tubes) heat exchangers, Goodway Benelux offers a unique technology with which large quantities of tubes can be cleaned quickly, effectively and safely. You can find more information in the video below.
