Quintel Heat Exchanger Refurbishing and Cleaning

Our heat exchanger section can supply new exchangers or perform all work necessary to completely recondition an exchanger. All parts of an exchanger can usually be repaired, cleaned or replaced if needed and this is not limited to: shell replacement, channels, channel covers, tubes, tubesheets, baffles, tie-rods, and spacers, seal strips, etc. We can handle complete or partial retubes and when the need arises, manufacture a new bundle assembly, shell or end channels.

All units are thoroughly tested before they leave our shop which will include: air testing of tubes or complete assembly, vacuum test, and hydro test, providing the unit has all the parts required for a hydro test. All units are guaranteed against leaks when they leave our shop.


Repair Services

From plugging a single tube, to the removal of deposits by chemical cleaning, to rebuilding units from the ground up, Quintel offers heat exchanger repair services to suit each customer and situation. Our 25-plus years of experience in the reconditioning and repair of heat exchangers is on your side when it comes to performing quality work on your vital equipment. Our work also provides the same warranties as would apply to equipment direct from an OEM, and our customers can enjoy them at a fraction of the cost. And should repair of your heat exchange equipment not be the most cost-effective solution in your case, we will be the first to tell you.

Every unit that leaves our shop is guaranteed against leaks. A full set of NDT procedures are performed as appropriate to each vessel, including air testing of the tubes and the complete assembly, a vacuum test, a hydro test, as well as an inspection by borescope to detect corrosion. Our chart recorders ensure that test results are saved and can be utilized in preventative maintenance evaluations. All test results (along with the unit history) and any videos/DVDs produced will be supplied to the customer for their records.

As ASME-code heat exchanger repairers, our shop carries an R stamp, certifying our shop in the repair of and/or alteration of those pressure vessels, as well as boilers, and other pressure-retaining items.

Quintel is also an Authorized Service Provider for Alfa Laval Inc., one of the leading global providers of Plate Heat Exchangers.

We have completed detailed training in the techniques used to properly restore Alfa Laval Exchangers and have many years of experience working on all different types and sizes of these plate/frame exchangers. As a certified provider of Alfa Laval exchangers, Quintel is able to offer new exchangers or existing exchangers that have been restored to new condition.

So, whether your situation calls for a heat exchanger retubing, a heat exchanger air or water cleaning, an ultrasound cleaning, or a complete heat exchanger rebuild, contact us to get the job done right.

Remanufacture Services

Quintel can remanufacture your heat exchanger exactly to its original specifications, from its blueprint or drawing. We can also remanufacture to original specs by creating our own drawing from your physical model.

The option of having your heat exchanger completely rebuilt from its blueprint (or based on the existing model) is a valuable one, ensuring as it does that you have equipment which continues to function as expected.

Every remanufactured unit that leaves our shop is guaranteed against leaks. A complete set of non-destructive tests is performed as appropriate to the vessel, including air testing of the tubes and of the complete assembly, a vacuum test, and a hydro test as necessary.

Quintel is an ASME-code heat exchanger repair shop, carrying an R stamp, certifying our shop in the repair and/or alteration of those pressure vessels, as well as boilers and other pressure-retaining items.

We can fabricate and remanufacture your heat exchanger and heat exchanger parts using a variety of metals, including, but not limited to, Hastelloy®, carbon steel, brass, aluminum, and stainless steel.

Cleaning Services

Jumpy Man’s Ultrasonic cleaning is the best non-invasive method for cleaning heat exchangers and other large equipment. It’s thorough and gets into tough to reach areas such as blind holes, knurling, and grooves. Sound wave technology is used to activate tiny bubbles that make their way into all the crevices in and around your equipment. The bubbles burst and clean the debris away.

Quintel uses Jump Man’s to perform this safe cleaning process because it saves time, it’s cost-effective, and it’s safe on your equipment.
