INFRARED THERMOHRAPHY OF CASINGS

The objective of PETROVAL's Infrared expert team is to provide instantaneous technical feedback by highlighting the potential structural damages to the furnaces.

INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY OF TUBES

The objective of PETROVAL’s Infrared expert team is to provide instantaneous technical feedback by highlighting the potential limitations identified on the furnace: combustion, tube limit temperature, tube damages, tubes skin thermocouples, heat flux distribution.

Tube insert technologies

SPIRELF®

SPIRELF® is a vibrating device secured on both tube ends by a fixing wire. This system converts the energy of the fluid flow in the tubes into vibration, creating a continuous online mechanical cleaning effect thus, reducing the fouling layer at the tube wall.

FIXOTAL®

FIXOTAL® converts the energy of the fluid flow in the tubes into turbulence thus, preventing the stagnation of products in the layer adjacent to the tube wall.

TURBOTAL®

TURBOTAL® is a rotating device hooked on a fixed head set on the tube sheet on the inlet side. This system converts the energy of the fluid flow in the tubes into rotation. This rotation provides a continuous online cleaning to reduce the fouling layer at the tube wall.
