Helios Automatic Tube Cleaning System Case Study: Xcel Energy

Mike O’Malley found an opportunity to improve chiller efficiency in the district cooling plant he manages in Denver, Colorado. Mike’s knowledge of the negative effects of condenser tube fouling and his search for a method to improve chiller efficiency led him to Innovas Technologies for the solution.

George Mason University

Helios Automatic Tube Cleaning System Case Study: George Mason University

Related to chiller efficiency, in the years prior to 2017 George Mason University managed chiller cleanliness via annual manual tube cleaning. Once management discovered the Helios Tube Cleaning System® (Helios) operating at the University of Virginia, they executed a plan to test the Helios at their central plant.

Helios Automatic Tube Cleaning System Case Study: University Of Wisconsin-Madison

Satisfied with the potential payback of the Helios TCS, UW–Madison initiated a plan to test a chiller equipped with a Helios TCS side-by-side with an identical, non-Helios-equipped chiller for the 2018 cooling season. Download the case study to read the results of the comparison.

Sacred Heart Medical Center

Helios Automatic Tube Cleaning System Case Study: Sacred Heart Medical Center

After initial installation in 2013, the ATCS systems have provided exceptional fouling prevention and cleaning at the Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend. In fact, the facilities team has not had to clean the condensers since the day the ATCS’s were activated, now going on four years.
