Case Studies

This twisted tube exchanger was introduced to a straight lance

Offshore drilling company in the Gulf of Mexico has 3 twisted tube exchangers with 2486 tubes completely plugged with asphaltine (type of process crude). In the past they were hand lanced with 4500 psi with minimal success. Process took 11 days – a total of 120 blasting hours.

Two 80 foot Combined Feed exchangers only accessible from the bottom?

Clean two Combined Feed exchangers that are 85 ft. long with 5,000 tubes. The greatest challenge was that the tubes were only accessible from the bottom. Our objective was to help our customer reduce their overall cleaning project costs even further without reducing the quality achieved in previous years. We also had to ensure that safety was not compromised in the process.
