New possibilities for the cleaning of tubes and tube bundle heat exchangers
mycon expands the application possibilities for the TubeMaster process so that inner tube surfaces can be additionally polished exactly as required. This makes longer cleaning intervals, shorter cleaning times and possibility of the production increment.In addition, mycon now also offers the TubeMaster process as an automated system, which is tailored exactly to the respective requirements of the customer. mycon installs the entire system and, if required, also supplies a blasting abrasive tailored to the requirements. At the customer's request, the cleaning can be accompanied by employees of mycon GmbH. Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH, sister company of mycon GmbH, also offers the cleaning of tubes and tube bundle heat exchangers using TubeMaster as a service.
Applications of the TubeMaster process for cleaning inner tube surfaces
The TubeMaster process can be used for cleaning and polishing tubes with an inner tube diameter of 3 mm or more. The most common application is the cleaning of tube bundle heat exchangers. TubeMaster cleans tubes from almost all materials with individual solutions: steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, titanium, graphite, glass fibre and many more.
TubeMaster successfully cleans and polishes even small dimensioned inner tubes of tube bundle heat exchangers
A customer's paint shop uses heating and cooling coils as well as plate and tube bundle heat exchangers. These must be cleaned at regular intervals. mycon GmbH recently received an order for the cleaning of a tube bundle heat exchanger made of stainless steel. Some of the tubes of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger were completely blocked.Previous cleaning of the exchanger had been carried out by burning out. The resulting residues were deposited in a thin, hard layer on the inner tube surfaces. This could only be determined after the first cleaning cycle. But this layer could also be completely removed in a second cleaning cycle.
Removal of hard residues from sensitive graphite tube bundle heat exchangers
Even the hardest residues can be removed from sensitive surfaces, as shown by the example of cleaning a graphite heat exchanger. The inner tube surfaces of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger were exposed to extremely hard, multilayer residues over the entire length of 3000mm. It was not possible to remove the residues using chemicals. Due to the sensitive pipe material, cleaning with high-pressure water was also not possible. This would have led to the destruction of the pipes. Kipp Umwelttechnik, the sister company of mycon, therefore used the TubeMaster process developed by mycon GmbH for cleaning. With the help of a special application of the process, the entire length of the heat exchanger could be completely cleaned.
