Heat Exchanger Cleaning Services

Without efficient nuclear power plant heat exchanger cleaning services, production processes and output suffer, which leads to cost increases and diminished bottom-line results. The prime culprit is the unavoidable fouling of the exchangers and the reduction of efficient heat transference.

How Often Should Heat Exchangers Be Cleaned?

You should be cleaning heat exchangers regularly at intervals. Our heat exchanger cleaning services will bring your heat exchangers back to maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness at each of these intervals.

Can You Clean a Heat Exchanger Yourself?

Cleaning heat exchangers requires specialized tools, skills, and processes, so it’s best to leave the job up to a professional contractor. Our heat exchanger cleaning and maintenance services are the result of years of experience, training, and technique development in a broad range of facility types, such as nuclear power plants, fossil power plants, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, and natural gas processing plants.

Condenser Tube Cleaning Services

The Merrick Group also provides high-quality nuclear power plant Condenser Cleaning Services.

Power companies are constantly faced with an increasingly harsh and changing environment, and ensuring that the proper cleaning and maintenance is performed helps the condenser tubes function as they should. Since many power plants use sea or river water for their main cooling system, it becomes critically important to maintain and clean the condenser tube. 

With all of the contaminants and pollutants, such as dirt, algae, and scum, that are found in open water, it’s important to properly clean condenser tubes to make certain that any traces of these contaminants are cleaned out. 

Our condenser tube cleaning and condenser tube maintenance services directly impact the performance and efficiency of power generation.
