Automatic Tube Cleaning Brushing For U-Tube Heat Exchangers

Automatic Tube Cleaning for U-Tube heat exchangers is now possible with the special design flexible scrubbers from Eqobrush. U-Tube heat exchangers are commonly used in the chemical industry where the need exists to have regular cleaning of the outside of the tube bundle. The U-Tube bundle can be easily removed from the cylinder for cleaning. The inside of the tubes however remains a difficult issue. Available options for cleaning are all sub-optimal simply because the curve in the tube.

Heat Exchanger Tube Cleaning

Heat exchanger tube cleaning As a vital part of the cooling system cleanliness of the heat exchanger tubes contribute to a great extend to the overall efficiency of the cooling system.   Water in an open cooling system can cause problems do to mineral deposits (concentration via evaporation), algae growth (availability of oxygen) and sedimentation of dust and debri ending up in the water stream via the cooling tower. Even the most stringent water management system cannot prevent from this affecting the cleanliness of the tubes and hence reducing the performance.

Cleaning of Heat Exchangers

Cleaning of Heat Exchangers Heat exchangers are critical components of your system and are in regular need of cleaning. The constant need for process cooling is provided by the water circulating over heat exchanger tubes and cooling tower. Because the heat exchanger performance is paramount to keep your system running at required capacity it is crucial to keep the tubes in optimal shape at all times. Eqobrush helps in achieving this.

Fouling Heat Exchanger

It is common knowledge that there is a regular and revolving need for heat exchanger cleaning. This is because of the fouling that occurs in the system. The tubes get clogged up over time and this impacts the performance substantially.

Fouling Factor Heat Exchanger

The fouling factor in heat exchangers stands for the resistance to heat flow through the walls of the tubes in the heat exchanger, reducing the efficiency of the whole unit. The fouling itself is caused by slime, mineral deposits and foreign matter sticking on the walls of the heat exchangers, and solidifying into a solid surface that impacts the water flow and heat exchange and distribution.   We introduce regular, high frequency cleaning with Eqobrush to avoid any fouling buildup. Otherwise, cost increases and performance loss is to be expected.
