Projectile Tube Cleaning has over 35 years of experience in the condenser tube cleaning industry. Our primary focus is our customers and we are able to accommodate a diverse range of situations and problems. Whether you are experiencing hard mineral deposits, biological fouling, or mud and silt, we have the solution that will best address your problem. Our crews are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and are able to work in all types of scenarios such as half load or around the clock cleanings
Projectile’s heat exchanger tube cleaning services utilize the same mechanical methods as our condenser tube cleaning services, but on a smaller scale. Our customers often require us to clean small heat exchanger bundles in conjunction with larger condenser tube cleaning jobs. Projectile technicians have extensive experience cleaning various smaller tube bundles such as oil lube coolers, exciters, feed water heaters, hydrogen coolers, stator coolers, and numerous others.
Projectile Tube Cleaning’s Helium Leak Detection Services Division offers the precision technology of mass spectrometry leak detection. Projectile personnel are capable of locating leaks as small as 2×10-9 atm cc/sec helium. Like our tube cleaning services, our helium leak detection personnel can be ready at a moment’s notice and are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Condenser and heat exchanger tube leaks can lead to costly problems such as excess back pressure, dissolved oxygen and corrosion. Ultimately the problems associated with tube leaks impact system efficiency and the power plant’s overall bottom line. Projectile Tube Cleaning has an array of solutions to find condenser tube leaks quickly and efficiently while the unit is in operation or while it is off line. In conjunction with our tube leak detection services we also offer tube plugging services in order to fix the leaks.
Projectile Tube Cleaning offers both replacement and repair services for dog-bone expansion joints. Projectile’s dog-bone expansion joint replacement service involves marking and removing all associated hardware, vulcanizing and installing the new expansion joint, and re-assembling the associated hardware. Our service technicians can work independently or with union personnel in order to carry out these services.
In some situations mechanical tube cleaning of condensers and heat exchangers cannot be used and for these situations Projectile Tube Cleaning offers its chemical cleaning services. Chemical cleaning may be necessary in situations such as extreme amounts of hard deposit, specifically hard calcium carbonate deposits, or the inability to remove heads and have access to the tube sheet.
Projectile’s Combustible Dust Remediation Services utilize cutting edge dust encapsulating foam technology to efficiently remove dangerous dust. The process works by spraying low moister foam on dust covered areas. The foam attaches to the dust at a molecular level and the weight of the foam pulls the combustible dust to the floor where it can be easily swept up and removed. The process is quick, safe, and simple and has many benefits compared to older, competitive methods such as vacuuming and water based cleaning methods.
