Benefits of Ultrasonic Clean-in-Place
Extend Process Run-time
Enhanced Energy Recovery
USP Technology increases turbulent flow and sustains surface cleanliness, allowing for better heat transfer. A refinery who implemented our Ultrasonic CIP system reported OHTC levels similar to when this heat train was first put into service, 5 years previous.
Improved Product Throughput
Cleaning a heat exchanger(Hx) can involve 20+ activities: unit bypass, depressurizing, in-situ pre-clean treatments, scaffold assembly, Hx disassembly, crane, bundle extraction, transporting to a cleaning area, cleaning contractor, water, chemicals and of course the remediation of the water, chemical and waste products. This process nearly repeats in reverse for putting an exchanger back into service. Each step involves multiple contractors, permits, meetings, reports, and potential delays.
