ECOMax-HE® Automatic Tube Cleaning System

Efficiently Mitigate Fouling in Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

Product Overview

Engineered to have Low Maintenance Needs and Long Operation Life

ECOMax-HE® is an effective solution to keep shell and tube heat exchanger clean. The solution uses sponge balls that are pumped simultaneously into heat exchanger tubesheet, enabling them to pass through the tubes and clean the fouling and scales deposits within.

How The Solution Works

Automatic tube cleaning process by ECOMax-HE®, specially designed with two pumps, involves periodic injection and collections cycles using cleaning sponge balls. The entire process is a batch operation, automatically controlled by PLC and occurs periodically few times in an hour, hardly for 1-2 minutes for injection and collection in each cycle.

Injection Cycle

  • The injection control valve opens and injection pump starts taking water from the Cooling Water inlet header pipe.
  • The pump boosts the pressure in the Ball Collector (BC), where the cleaning sponge balls are resting.
  • The sponge balls are injected almost simultaneously in the heat exchanger tube sheet with the help of injection pump.
  • With an effective spread in various tubes, the sponge balls pass through and clean the fouling /scales/deposits inside.

Collection Cycle

  • Once the sponge balls come out of the heat exchanger tubes they are collected in a ball trap.
  • During this cycle, the collection control valve opens and collection pump starts.
  • Collection pump collects water along with the sponge balls from the Ball Trap.
  • The sponge balls are arrested by the Ball Collector on the way back & water is sent into the Cooling Water outlet header pipe.
