Can your heat exchangers beat 10 years
of maintenance-free performance?
The choice of tube material in heat exchangers has implications on the overall productivity of a process. This is especially true in corrosive environments where frequent maintenance stops are routine.
Sandvik develops special steels to address various industry needs. One of them is the Sandvik SAF 2707 HD® environments.
, a hyper-duplex stainless steel for severe corrosive
Advised by Sandvik, a Latin American petrochemical plant decided to replace its carbon steel tubes with Sandvik SAF 2707 HD®
in two heat exchangers. Maintenance stops were reduced from once every two years to once every 10 years.
Dramatically reducing production losses, the company will save a minimum of USD 345,000 over a ten-year period. Now, how much could you save on a better tube material?
