Common cleaning procedure is as follows:


  • General inspection before cleaning
  • Place boards to protect the rubber lining
  • Use water jets or balls blown by compressed air through the tubes
  • Brushes or canes can be used
  • When plastic inserts are fitted work from the inlet end
  • Test for leaks on completion
  • Clean or renew the sacrificial anodes
  • Remove the boards and prove vents and drains clear


  • Inspect the steam side for deposits, clean with a chemical solvent where required
  • Examine the baffles, tube plates and deflectors
  • Look for vibration erosion damage of the tubes
  • Inspect for possible air leakage
  • Box up and remove chocks.
