One of Hennigan Engineering’s core service offerings is the restoration and maintenance of condenser tubes to design specifications or to the maximum available operating efficiency utilizing various cleaning techniques. These include condenser tube cleaning techniques such as chemical cleaning, hydrolase cleaning and projectile cleaning. Proper assessment of the conditions affecting each unit is crucial in choosing the correct course of action. We work closely with our clients to offer a comprehensive cleaning solution, taking into account tube base metal compositions, base metal conditions, corrosion control, fouling agent, scale composition, cleaning window, safety and environmental concerns. Based on application, tube condition and overall plant objectives, we implement cleaning operations that best meet the tube condition, fouling substance removal plan and the customer’s budget.
Our main goal is to restore and maintain maximum operating efficiency for every condenser and heat exchanger we clean. Hennigan Engineering has the experience required to review your particular conditions and employ the appropriate cleaning technique for every application.
We rely heavily on the use of specialized high pressure water jetting equipment to satisfy the majority of our project requirements. We have custom designed our high pressure water jetting systems to perform far beyond the capability of off-the-shelf equipment. The net result is a package designed to provide complete 360 I.D. tube cleaning without harming tube base metal. With operating pressures ranging from 10,000 – 20,000 psi, we can effectively remove all foreign debris, from biological films to calcium/silica scales.
