The Problem

Routine testing indicated a rising level of carbon which reduces efficiency at the process end and results in higher running costs. The heat up time for one process was over 6 hours, which extended the batch times.

What Vertellus wanted to achieve

Reduction in heat up time and batch time and to increase capacity.

The Global Heat Transfer solution

A thorough system clean to remove debris and reduce the carbon content of the oil.

Impact

Significant reduction in heat-up time (from 6 hours to 4) and improved system efficiency. As an additional benefit heat transfer was not only maintained but reduced overall batch times from 14 hours to 12 hours per batch and increased plant capacity by almost 1000 tonnes per annum.

What Vertellus say

The service that Global Heat Transfer provided was quick and efficient. The work carried out on site was first class. Method statements & risk assessments were offered prior to the job starting – rather than having to chase – and the site was left clean & tidy.
