Heater tube fouling

Heater tube fouling is a persistent challenge in industrial heaters, especially in refineries and petrochemical plants. It happens when deposits like sediment, scale, or other undesirable materials accumulate on heat exchanger tube surfaces. This accumulation hinders heat transfer, reducing heating process efficiency and causing various operational issues.

Tube skin thermocouple validation

Tube skin thermocouples are crucial for monitoring and maintaining optimal industrial heater performance, ensuring accurate temperature measurements on heat exchanger tube surfaces. Validating their reliability and accuracy is essential to prevent issues like tube overheating, reduced efficiency, and equipment damage. In this context, infrared inspection emerges as a valuable tool for confirming tube skin thermocouple functionality.

Overall thermal map of the heater tube

Traditional single-point temperature measurements, often using thermocouples, offer localized insights but lack a holistic view of the entire tube surface. In contrast, infrared inspection stands out as a powerful technology capable of delivering an overall thermal map, providing a more nuanced and thorough assessment.
