MORKO Ultrasonic Scale Prevention

Online Heat Exchanger Cleaning

Clean Heat Exchangers During Operation

MORKO Ultrasonic Scale Prevention (USP) cleans heat exchangers online, in full operation. The technology continuously disrupts fouling from adhering to heat transfer surfaces.

Strategically positioned transducers provide the vibration and cavitation effects to keep fouling from staying on heat transfer surfaces.

Online Heat Exchanger Cleaning

MORKO Ultrasonic Scale Prevention (USP) uses specialized  transducers that are mounted externally to the heat exchangers at strategic locations on the tube sheet.

The transducers convert electrical energy to mechanical energy (micro-pulses) during process operation.

Strategically positioned transducers provide the vibration and cavitation effects to keep fouling from staying on heat transfer surfaces.

Continuous Fouling Mitigation

Finely-calibrated micro-pulses emitted from the USP system mitigate new mineral scale and fouling build-up from settling, thereby keeping heat exchanger tubes clean.

Micropulse energy is safe for use on heat exchangers and all surrounding equipment, as the energy output from each transducer is less than 6 microns.

USP online cleaning technology holds UL, CE and ATEX certifications and is currently utilized worldwide.

The USP system is calibrated on-site to match the natural mechanical resonance of the heat exchanger – like tuning a guitar.

Why MORKO USP?

Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of fouling deposits does MORKO USP mitigate against?
USP mitigates both organic and inorganic types of fouling from heat exchanger tubes. This ultrasonic scale preventer works particularly well with hard, brittle deposits, as well as with slug, slime and sticky scale.
Can ultrasonic cleaning of heat exchangers cause harm to my equipment or its surroundings?
There are no records of damage from our customers who have been using ultrasonics to descale heat exchangers. The vibrations created by USP are only about 2-6 microns in size. The average human hair is 100 microns thick, and the vibrations from your process already are far greater.
What certifications does USP have?
All USP equipment is certified for the country of use. UL, CE and ATEX certification are standard.
Have more questions?
How much will this cost?
It’s in both our best interests to provide you with the right amount of ultrasound necessary for optimal online heat exchanger cleaning. For this, we should first understand more about your process.
