Petroleum company uses Vulcan descaler in oilfield application
Installation purpose – The gas heats the water in the furnace, then the hot water heats the tubes, so that the water temperature in the tubes rises from 40 °C to 70 °C. The water in the tubes passes through the pump, transported to various wells.
However, the heat exchanger efficiency is decreasing because of scale in the tubes. More gas has to be used to heat the furnace, so that the energy consumption is increased.
Result – After installing the Vulcan S25 for 6 months, we found that there is no additional electricity usage, and the overall heat exchanger efficiency is still at 80%. We approved Vulcan and will make the follow-up purchase for the whole project.
