Almost all types of heat exchangers are easy to clean with high-pressure water. Whether in pipe bundle heat exchangers, plate heat exchangers or spiral heat exchangers, the removal of deposits such as lime, bitumen and other process media by high pressure is thorough and at the same time gentle on materials.
A cleaned heat exchanger increases process efficiency and ensures high energy savings. The high-pressure cleaning can be used for both internal and external cleaning. Even complex-shaped pipes or heat exchangers in the explosion-proof ATEX area can be easily cleaned with the appropriate cleaning system. URACA develops and produces special systems for the automated cleaning of spiral heat exchangers.
A special advantage of the high pressure water cleaning method: Unlike mechanical cleaning, water does not damage the heat exchanger. Cleaning tools include rigid and flexible lances, as well as nozzles, pump units, foot valves, and retaining devices.
The cleaning of heat exchangers is possible when installed, for example, with manually guided lances. Alternatively, pipe bundles can be cleaned centrally at a washing position. For the large variety of heat exchangers, URACA offers a wide range of accessories.
