Why Automatic Tube Cleaning is Essential For Shell and Tube Type Heat Exchangers?

Home / Tube Cleaning / Why Automatic Tube Cleaning is Essential For Shell and Tube Type Heat Exchangers?

For all we know, fouling in shell and tube heat exchangers is more or less, inevitable. But have you ever wondered what can be the impact of this fouling? Let’s take a look!

Once started, the fouling in the heat exchangers keeps increasing in thickness, eventually reducing the performance of heat transfer. This, in turn, does not allow a proper heat transfer and increases the running hours of Chillers. This can lead to a loss in business profitability since it leads to increased spending on energy bills as well as decreased revenues due to production loss.

So, what exactly is the solution for all of it?

The answer is rather simple – Automatic tube cleaning system or ACCS. No matter your business type – Chemical manufacturing, HVAC, refinery process or power plant, ACCS is one tried and tested method that will surely do the trick for you!

Wondering why the hoopla around ACCS? Well, let us introduce you to some of the benefits that this system offers.

  • It reduces energy bills by up to 20%.
  • Bring the heat exchangers to their original cooling capacity.
  • Diminishes production loss and downtime.
  • Extend the life of equipment by over 20%.
  • Reduce the cost of maintenance.
  • Increase the power output, especially in case of a power plant.

 

How fast the ACCS pays back for itself?

Well, yes! In fact, more often than not, the cost of the installing the system is recovered in a matter of few months or a year at max.

The system often pays for itself in less than 1 year. In some cases, its cost is recovered in few months by saving production loss on account of avoiding a compulsory shutdown.

So, how exactly does it work?

CET-Enviro’s Automatic Tube Cleaning System comprises of specialised balls which are infused into the cooling water flow at regular intervals. The balls travel through the tubes while cleaning them, and are then collected at the outlet. That being done, they are then prepared for the consequent cleaning cycle. Depending on the available space as well as pipe runs, ball traps can be availed in a wide range of shapes as well as flow configurations.

What makes CET-Enviro ACCS worth your while?

To begin with, you can rest assured that you won’t need to instigate process shutdowns. In addition, with CET-Enviro ACCS your plant will be free from the use of any chemicals for the cleaning process, thus relieving you from any work related to the disposal of such chemicals. Then again, we offer you a guarantee for zero lost balls, thus ensuring that you enjoy tremendous value for your money.

Now that you’re aware of some of the impressive benefits of ACCS, we are more than sure that you will soon deploy the same for the maintenance of your shell and tube type heat exchangers.
