Retubing

Inter-Marine can offer complete on-site or in-house heat exchanger retubing service. Inter-Marine retube, service and repair all different types, brands and models of heat exchangers.

Heat exchanger tubes are constantly contracting and expanding as they heat up and cool down during normal operation. Depending on the application and the fluid transferring through, salt water scale, calcium, and other contaminants can create further issues, leading to even faster deterioration. In due course these factors lead to complications within the heat exchanger resulting in the replacement of the tubes.

We have facilities to transform straight tube into the curved tubes which is required in monty heart exchanger designs. We also have access to a full range of tubes smooth and final tubing in a variety of metals, diameters and well thickness.
To reduce the cost of heat exchanger retubing, Inter-Marine can offer eddy current tube analysis. An Eddy current test will identify which tubes need to be replaced and which can remain in service. Once the faulty tubes are identified by our specialised technicians, the following works are to be carried out:

 

– Remove damage, corroded or worn out tubes
– Clean and prepare tube sheet
– Provide the replacement tubes required
– Install new tubing
– Assist in pressure testing the heat exchanger
