American Efficiency Services’ philosophy about condenser and heat exchanger tube cleaning services is this: anyone can put a cleaner in a tube and push — it’s the condenser technicians doing the work that make the difference in quality. This is why our crews are all full-time employees, with years of experience and extensive safety training to make them aware, alert, and ready to implement proven tube cleaning techniques for any job.
AES offers Condenser and heat exchanger Tube Cleaning Services on a wide variety of systems that include main condensers, turbine lube oil coolers, hydrogen coolers, chillers, ACW and many more.
Our provided crews are dedicated to safety, quality job performance, and accountable completion. Our condenser services reporting system is ready to transfer photographs, tube deposit analysis, tube bundle diagrams and condenser unit data to our customers directly from the condenser, so you have a full visual of every finding AES comes across.
AES believes that providing the most available and accurate condenser data during a condenser/heat exchanger tube cleaning gives our customers the ability to make better plans for future cleanings and gain the competitive advantage necessary in today’s market.
Selection of the correct type of condenser tube cleaners for the deposits contained in your condenser and heat exchanger tubes is the most important decision to be made prior to a condenser or heat exchanger tube cleaning. Not sure what type of deposits are lurking? American Efficiency Services will come to the job site equipped with a variety of tube cleaners so whatever deposits are present; we have what is needed to attack them. AES’s standard operating procedures are to obtain pre-cleaning tube internal images to better determine the deposit to be encountered.
AES works closely with Goodway to offer an entire line of condenser and heat exchanger cleaning products, from aggressive metal scrapers for hard deposits to a plastic tube scrubber for lighter, easily removed deposits. Condenser cleaners include; forced metal scrapers, nylon brushes, plastic scrubbers, stainless steel brushes, PCH-180’s and more all specifically designed for the exact tube size and deposit. AES’s condenser tube cleaning equipment is engineered for the specific use in industrial environments.
AES’s condenser services are not solely focused on one five-day project but what is the best business plan to obtain the highest efficiency of your condenser for the remaining life of your asset. Once AES establishes a history based on as-found conditions, we will work closely with plant personnel to determine the most economical and cost-effective approach for integrating future condenser tube cleanings as a part of a routine condenser maintenance program.
A deposit sample from a condenser tube is collected for each project to determine the make-up of the deposit. With this knowledge, the condenser system owner is able to make adjustments to how they chemically treat their water, establish proper condenser tube cleaning intervals, and how aggressive the tube cleaning should be. Working together, AES can assist in the development of a long-term strategy to help you keep your condenser and heat exchanger tubes clean, achieve efficient unit operation, and obtain your financial goals.
American Efficiency Services dispatches a Safety / Documentation Manager for each condenser or heat exchanger tube cleaning project in addition to the regular project manager. This allows the tube cleaning crew to focus on their personal safety responsibilities and the cleaning scope of work while the Safety / Documentation Manager focuses on overall project safety and the collection of all pertinent data during the condenser services.
Condenser tube cleaning is only one spoke of a quality condenser health plan. AES condenser descaling can keep your condenser efficient but we provide the condenser services for the life of your condenser. Those services include condenser leak detection services to identify your condenser tube leaks, condenser eddy current so you can understand the health of your condenser tubes, condenser repair (tube plugging) for when a tube fails and condenser retubing for when the current condenser tubes have lived their complete useful life.
