Regular inspections of your heat exchanger’s performance allow preventative measures, including mechanical cleaning, CIP and welding repairs, to be taken to minimize the risk of unscheduled and costly downtime. They also help to extend the lifecycle of the equipment. In the event of failure, our service engineers will assess any damage, carry out tests and advise on the best solution, quickly and efficiently.
Kelvion welded plate heat exchangers, with their outstanding thermal transfer coefficients, are built for demanding applications. To avoid any risk of unscheduled downtime, it is important to inspect the condition of the equipment to offset any potential failure before it happens. We provide a range of preventative measures, including cleaning by hydro-blasting, chemical CIP and inspecting and repairing welding. Should the heat exchanger fail, we will first collect data to assess the damage then our service engineers will perform a range of tests. We always advise you not to try and open the heat exchanger – particularly a K⁰Bloc unit – without training or Kelvion supervision as this may cause further damage if done incorrectly.
Following the tests, we will advise on the best course of action to get the heat exchanger running efficiently again. This may be repair welding, replacement of parts or, in rare circumstances, full replacement of the unit. Whatever the outcome, you can be assured of a robust and reliable performance from your heat exchanger.
With our network of locations worldwide, we offer maximum and reliable service availability wherever you are and at any time.
