Heat Exchanger Cleaning
JK Engineering & Technology primarily offers its heat exchanger tube cleaning services onsite at our customers’ plants. At our facility, we can provide heat exchanger tube cleaning services as well as maintenance and testing services. Our technicians can then disassemble the heat exchanger and prepare a maintenance plan based on the customer’s needs. Plate type Heat Exchangers JK Engineering and Technology uses a specialised method for plate type heat exchanger cleaning which involves circulating descaling chemicals to remove deposits. Chemical cleaning of plate and frame heat exchangers works by circulating a specialized descaling agent through the cooling side or water side of the heat exchanger. While the chemical solution flows through the channels of the plate type heat exchanger it dissolves the mineral scaling and other debris. The other leading method for cleaning plate and frame exchangers is to first disassemble the heat exchanger and remove the plates to be cleaned one by one. This process can be very expensive and time-consuming. Each time a plate is removed from the frame of the exchanger and cleaned individually typically with pressurized water. The gaskets that are between the plates normally need to be replaced which also adds to the cost of the process. Because of the large amount of mechanical work involved with disassembling the heat exchanger for cleaning, chemical circulation is a much lower cost option and it generally provides the same cleanliness as cleaning the plates one at a time.
