On-site Maintenance & Repairs
Where it is impractical, due to size or time constraints, to remove an existing heat exchanger from a site or vessel, Sterling Thermal Technology provides professional worldwide on-site services.
With ‘Passport To Safety’ training and qualifications, our own highly skilled, fully equipped heat exchanger engineers are available to travel anywhere in the world, usually at short notice, to undertake such work as de-tubing/re-tubing, heat exchanger maintenance, heat exchanger installation and commissioning.
One such contract required round the clock shift pattern working to de-tube & re-tube a steam condenser containing in excess of 8000 tubes, completed in less than 21 days – start to finish.
With nearly 30 years of site experience, our site fitters are trained for hazardous environments such as oil and LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) tankers and vessel engine rooms and nuclear power stations. They are able to comply with all local safety regulations and procedures. Recent contracts include shipboard works in China, Dubai and Japan, as well as UK locations.
If insufficient specification data is available to manufacture a replacement or new unit, our experienced field engineers can attend the vessel or plant, wherever it may be, in order to carry out a heat exchanger survey to obtain accurate measurements .
