ATB system brushes and baskets, the key to a strong system payback, installed in a condenser tube sheet.
The benefits include:
Energy Savings - Lower fouling factors provide more efficient heat transfer. Electrical energy consumption is reducted by 10% to 30% when average fouling is eliminated. The ATB System is guaranteed to provide a 0.0001 fouling factor or better.
Maintenance Savings - The need to manually clean tubes is eliminated as the ATB system cleans condenser tubes daily. Labour and material costs for maintenance are greatly reduced.
Reduction of downtime - The ATB system eliminates the need to shut down heat transfer equipment throughout the year. In process industries, unscheduled downtime to manually clean tubes costs even more than the energy loss created by tube fouling.
Reduction of chemicals - Normal chemical treatment on tube walls can be redued as the ATB system keeps precipitation from forming on the walls. This prevention of precipitation also helps to eliminate periodic acid cleaning.
