Retubing project planning engineers establish relationships with clients, providing optimal retubing solutions unique to each project. Project milestones are transcribed into Gantt charts for simplified project management from start to finish.
Our first objective is assessing the scope of the retubing project, to include the number of tubes, tube bundles, tube size, tube OD, wall thickness, length, and tube material.
We analyze existing condenser & heat exchanger data sheets to determine causes for tube corrosion, tube-sheet failure, and improper tube bundle installation. Push/pull-out testing method validates the technical competence of our retubing projects.
Tube management projects services include:
- Generating retubing plans
- Project scheduling
- Mobilization of personnel and equipment
- Interference removal
- Tube removal off-site
- Efficient tube removal for modular change outs
- Scrap handling
Our sample tube removal is an industry-leading, cost-effective method of tube failure analysis. Sample tube removal involves removing single tubes instead entire tube bundles, saving time and resources in tube failure troubleshooting.
Our tube sourcing experts provide referrals for vendor material selection. We assist in choosing tubing material, including copper alloys, 90-10 cu-ni, 70-30 cu-ni, 90-10 cupro-nickel, 70-30 cupro-nickel, admiralty brass, stainless steel, titanium, and sea-cure.
RetubeCo's field technicians are experienced in all aspects of condenser and heat exchanger service repair and retubing. Technicians can quickly be mobilized for retubing during an emergency outage.
