Tube Tech International announced that its multi-million dollar Shell Side JetTM innovation has started live demonstrations of its open-market Shell Side Jet solution. The breakthrough arising from a multi-million-dollar R&D project assures for the first time the elimination of fouling from the shell and pipe exchangers ' external heat transfer layer.
Developed by Tube Tech International with R&D funding from the Horizon 2020 program through the SME Instrument, Shell Side Jet was created to meet the petrochemical market's demands for a solution that can clean between shell side tubes. The only technology in the world that can tackle shell-side fouling with guaranteed results will be Shell Side Jet.
Derek Sumsion, R&D Manager at Tube Tech International, said: "Before the launch in March 2020, the live demonstrations of our Shell Side Jet solution is a huge milestone for us. We've spent years researching and designing approaches to the most daunting fouling challenges facing the market, and we're excited to show this unique service, the first of its kind.
"Technology includes a detection system capable of indicating bent tubes and heavily fouled areas, protecting the asset and ensuring a more accurate cleaning. We are also able to provide the consumer with comprehensive electronic documents that include data such as length of baffle sheets, the position of damaged or missing pipes, fouling size, images of before, during and after washing, and an interactive heat chart.
"Using this method, we will return facilities to near-design thermal efficiency, thus increasing CO2 pollution and enhancing profitability, thereby saving millions of dollars a year for refineries worldwide.
"At the 2019 WJTA Conference and Exhibition in New Orleans in November, we held our first live demonstration of the system to more than 1,600 spectators. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback. Improving safety standards is a top priority for any innovation we develop; the mobile control of the device has inspired many citizens and the health benefits it brings. We can't wait to start carrying out customer service around the globe and accept engineering presentation inquiries.
Shell Side Jet claims to restore assets close to thermal design efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions, and remove at least 90% of fouling. Tube Tech International Ltd. will be exhibiting Shell Side Jet at Refining and Petrochemicals World (RPW) Thailand from January 16-17, 2020.
