TTIL robotic technology deployed during shutdown of Malaysian ethylene plant

The Challenge

Tube Tech International (TTIL) was contracted by a leading oil and gas multinational in Malaysia to clean the convection section of a furnace F-105. The ethylene plant shutdown operation was very congested with multiple contractors executing their work on site, however, our efficient communication and planning with the team and site management ensured our globally proven results could be achieved without impacting others.


TTI’s robotic convection bank cleaning technology was deployed, restoring near 100% heat duty – a result unmatched by traditional cleaning methods. The robot was remotely operated by our expert team for optimum safety and accessibility. The contract was executed on time, taking 14 days to complete.

Not only has our client experienced an instant return on investment on our service, but restoring the asset back to factory conditions has dramatically reduced the risk of costly replacement and optimised performance to enable the release of continuous energy savings.
