Professional, trusted industrial heat exchanger experts.

At WCR UK, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive service and repair offerings for all models of PHEs. We have the experience and expertise to support industrial efficiency by saving time, money, and resources through the service we offer for all major manufacturers of industrial heat exchangers.

Our service offer includes;

Site cleaning processes

If your industrial heat transfer process relies on any PHE, it is crucial to keep the plates and gaskets clean.

A variety of factors can lead to a deterioration in performance, as well as an increase in maintenance costs.

The main factor is the temperature of the process media, which will cause corrosion and scale build-up on the heat exchanger plates and gaskets. This will lead to a reduction in heat transfer efficiency and an increase in pressure drop.

It is, therefore, important to carry out routine cleaning and maintenance of your PHE to restore it to its optimum performance.

WCR UK offers a comprehensive cleaning service for plate and tube heat exchangers, which includes;

  • High-pressure jetting
  • Mechanical cleaning
  • On-site cleaning processes
  • Unblock tubes (Tube HE)
  • Gasket refurbishment
  • Re-fitting of equipment

Repairs can be carried out, including tube plugging, tube replacement or weld repairs. Also, we can carry out pressure testing to satisfy any inspection requirements, including removing and re-fitting tube bundles on tube HEs.

We offer replacement gaskets for both OEMs and aftermarket HE manufacturers.

WCR UK has a wide range of gasket materials to suit the process conditions.

Our quality is guaranteed with our ISO 9001:2015 certification.

With over 20 years in the heat exchanger business, you can trust that our team will have your heat exchanger back up and running in no time.

Dye penetrant testing

Dye penetrant testing is a process of inspection for tiny cracks and leaks on the surface of plate heat exchangers.

This non-destructive method of testing allows for the thorough detection of potential defects such as leaks, cracks, and pinholes with the proprietary red dye saturating the surface and white developer solution covering the reverse side, we are capable of detecting even minuscule imperfections.

To ensure reliability and effectiveness, you must have them tested annually to ensure they will continue to work as intended.

This non-destructive technique helps prevent costly repairs and downtime, maximising your profits and uptime.

Frame handling

Industrial heat exchanger frames are heavy and difficult to handle.

It is essential that they are handled with care. They also need to be positioned accurately when in the workshop for efficient working and minimum disruption to work scheduled in the rest of the workshop.

Our highly-trained professionals can handle any size of heat exchanger frame in our workshop with overhead cranes and forklifts.
