We also work hand-in-glove with your management team to develop strategies that reduce associated costs required to complete necessary repairs.
Partial Tube Repair
In many cases, damage to air heater tubes is localized and limited to one section of the tube. This is especially true when erosion is the primary damage mechanism and failures are located close to the tubesheet plate. When local damage is identified, CMS frequently recommends partial tube repairs of the air heater.Learn More
Access to an air heater is frequently limited by overhead obstructions or the location of adjacent equipment, such as economizers or dust collectors. In many cases, these obstructions make it difficult, if not impossible, to install full length replacement materials, without taking an extended outage.Learn More
Convective Tube Solution™
The CMS Convective Tube Solution™ is the tubular air heater industry’s first and only long term solution to aggressive dew point corrosion damage. Cold-end corrosion, localized cold spots, and heat sinks in an air heater can have devastating effects on operating and, ultimately, your financial performance.Learn More
The EROS™ is a CMS Inc. patent-pending design that provides long term relief from problems associated with fly ash erosion. Fly ash erosion often occurs within the first 3-5 inches at the gas inlet of the tube up to the top tubesheet plate.Learn More
