O&G Refinery

Prior to HeatX, the heat exchanger had experienced massive amounts of deposition, erosion, and corrosion. Prior to HeatX, frequent acid cleaning was required which damaged the tubes.
  • Type of Facility: Desalination and Thermal Power Plant
  • Type of Heat Exchanger: Floating type Shell and Tube
  • Material: Carbon Steel
  • Number of Tubes: 1,700
  • Year of Application: 2017
  • HeatX treated exchanger achieved equivalent efficiency as compared with a new exchanger
  • Currently in service now with steady pressure, temperature and flow rate

Industrial Plant

HeatX was applied inside an industrial fertilizer plant during the shutdown period. Previous to HeatX, the heat exchanger experienced frequent shut downs due to tube blockage and lower heat transfer efficiency for service.
  • Type of Facility: Fertilizer Plant
  • Type of Heat Exchanger: Shell and Tube
  • Material: Carbon Steel
  • Number of Tubes: 2,900
  • Year of Application: 2020
  • Downtime Savings: Eliminated the need for plant shutdowns
  • Improved flow and temperature conditions
  • Life of the exchanger has been enhanced by more than 5 years
