Shell & Tube Steam

Service for Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers

Maintaining and retubing shell & tube heat exchangers is essential for ensuring maximum operating capacity and a allow for an extended lifecycle. Replacing the tubes and tube bundles in a heat exchanger is expensive. Which is why we have developed a cost-effective solution that extends the life of the existing components. By installing full length tube liners or CTI Shield/Seals™ we can increase the lifecycle of the heat exchanger, while saving on maintenance costs, improving efficiency and reducing shutdown time.

Repair of tube ends or tubes with CTI Shield/Seals™ or Full Length Tube Liners

Over time heat exchanger tubes and tube ends can become damaged and corroded, causing them to leak. The standard response would be to retube the equipment and replace the tube bundles. As well as being costly, it also means a long shutdown. The Kelvion solution e.g is relining the tubes and installing CTI Shield/Seals™ to repair the tube ends. It involves a four-step process: analyzing the scope of the damage, proposing the repair, carrying out the work and final inspection. This approach is more cost-effective, requires a shorter shutdown time and keeps the heat exchanger running efficiently for longer.
