Antifouling Coating Case Study
Heat exchanger fouling is a costly issue that often has wide-ranging performance and efficiency implications. In our case study, we examine how Exchanger Industries worked with a major oil sands producer to solve their severe fouling problems by implementing a proprietary next-gen antifouling coating.
As a first step, Exchanger Industries sat down with the Producer to define clear performance objectives for the trial. The customer needed to see at least a 50% reduction in cleaning events and identified a stretch goal of eliminating redundant equipment — and they wanted the evaluation conducted in real-time at full scale to give confidence in the results.
Exchanger Industries delivered against these expectations and the results are clear:
- No cleanings in 7 years and over $1M in direct cleaning savings
- U-values at or near baseline since installation
- Prolonged heat exchanger lifespan
- Technology expanded to other sites
