plastocor® Tube Lining System

After a long period of operation, there are every possibility of Heat–Exchanger tubes getting weakened by erosion/corrosion throughout the entire length of the tubes. This may result in pits or excessive thinning of the tubes as well as increased fouling.

Solution:

The original patented plastocor Tube Lining System for the full length of the tube is a unique on-site application system carried out during regular outages to extend the lifespan of small Caliber tubes (3-4mm) of condensers and heat exchangers damaged by erosion and corrosion. The patented technology, machinery and services allow for full-length tube coatings of approx. 15m length. The coating is additionally so smooth that the propensity for biofilm formation and silt deposition is greatly reduced. As a result, plastocor Tube Lining further eliminates almost all metal ion discharges, such as e.g. copper, zinc, arsenic, resulting in not only expert tube protection, but also protection of the environment.
