Refining

Finally, a simple solution for improving your refinery’s cooling process efficiency.  The Helios Tube Cleaning System prevents fouling in your process heat exchangers naturally and sustainably — without costly process shutdowns or chemical treatments.

What We Do

Efficiency

Data shows that the Helios TCS offers average annual energy efficiency gains in excess of 10%.

Maintenance

Automation replaces manual chiller tube cleaning reducing operating costs.

Sustainability

Improved chiller performance reduces carbon emissons and increases sustainability.

Clean heat exchangers safely & efficiently.

Now there’s a simple solution for improving your refinery’s cooling process efficiency. Innovas Technologies offers our innovative Helios Tube Cleaning System technology that prevents fouling your process heat exchangers naturally and sustainably — without costly process shutdowns or chemical treatments. Whether it’s a process heat exchanger, SAGD produced water heat exchanger, extraction water preheater, vacuum condenser, or overheads condenser, our ball tube cleaning system technology will improve heat transfer efficiency and reduce downtime.

  • Optimized cooling efficiency
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Reduced environmental pollution 
  • Improved plant health and safety
  • Reduced Maintenance Expense
  • Eliminate chiller fouling due to bioscale

IRR of 30%+

A simple solution without costly shutdowns.

When your heat exchanger tubes are clean, the productivity of your refinery improves.  Our Helios Tube Cleaning System technology provides benefits in a wide range of applications: water, fuels, lubricants, acids and other fouling liquids.  And, we provide fouling-prevention solutions for heat exchangers working in extreme temperatures, with corrosive liquids, or other extreme fouling conditions.

Increased Power Generation

Increase power output by 0.5%-4%. Power is generated at maximum efficiency at all times. Extend plant availability, as there is no need to shut down your condenser for tube cleaning.

Rapid Return on Investment (ROI)

With opportunities for utility rebates, our technology offers rapid financial returns.  Equipment life of 15-20 years yields internal rates of return (IRR) in excess of 30%.

Improved Reliability

Less moving parts = higher reliability.  No moving parts in the ball trap means absolutely no sponge balls are lost.  Our tube cleaning system provides maintenance through continuous, on-load tube cleaning.

Energy Savings of 25%
