HEAT EXCHANGER CLEANING PROCEDURE
Before we begin any cleaning project we ensure that all safety standards are not just met, but exceeded. It’s critical that all employees, waste, and environments are protected and managed according to all regulations. While the following section breaks down how we provide heat exchanger cleaning, every project is different and there will be details that are specific to your facility.
HEAT EXCHANGER CLEANING STEPS:
- Isolate and drain the exchanger
- Setup environmental controls
- Attach waste collection on supply and return
- Using proper PPE & exchanger nosels we begin cleaning the tubes
- Continue circulation of custom solution
- Periodically analyize the effectiveness
- Purge the unit to remove all residue
Industries We Serve:
- Automotive manufacturers

The extensiveness of our cleaning depends on your facility’s requirements, cleanliness standards, and health & safety standards. With the emergence of COVID-19 many industries now have strict disinfecting requirements, you can learn more by reading about our covid cleaning services.
HEAT EXCHANGER MAINTENANCE
To maintain an efficient exchanger regular maintenance is an important and required routine. Generally our maintenance services include cleaning plates, tubes, and replacing gaskets. Depending on your heat exchanger and facility there may be a variety of different maintenance that is required.
- Fluid viscosity – keeping lower viscosity and less resistance will increase the pumping efficiency and heat transfer.
- Temperature – if the internal wall temperature is too high this can cause decomposition of the exchanger fluid causing hydrocarbons to build up.
- Fluid composition – regular fluid testing will predict the longevity and allow for proper planning to replace the fluid.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN TO CLEAN A HEAT EXCHANGER?
There are easy signals used to identify when it’s time to clean your heat exchanger. When you are not acheiving correct temperatures for heating or cooling then it is time to get your heat exchanger cleaned.
These incorrect temperatures occur because of scaling build up. This constricts the tubes constricting the channel and causing the fluid to move quicker.
This causes your heat exchanger to be less efficient, requiring more energy to operate and longer run times to acheive the desired temperature.
