Safe and Efficient Solution for Leaking or Degraded Heat Exchanger Tubes

Heat exchanger tube leaks in highly corrosive environments can have dramatic effects on the chemical make-up of the cooling medium and the product. Volatile reactions from cross contamination can result in countless hours of downtime to repair damaged equipment and normalize process mediums. Having a fast, safe, and reliable solution to repair heat exchanger tube leaks is critical to mitigate prolonged downtime, and ensure that newly repaired equipment will not experience recurring failures, forcing interruptions in process schedules.

Welding plugs into leaking heat exchanger tubes introduces a variety of long and short-term complications. Circumferential cracking caused by welding can damage surrounding tubes, tubesheets, and tubesheet ligaments resulting in an extended repair schedule or unexpected downtime after the unit is back online.
