Spare Parts for Heat Recovery Equipment
Since Thermal Transfer Corporation's recuperators and heat exchangers have no moving parts, they do not require the customer to maintain an extensive spare parts inventory. However, spare tubes, spare tube bundles, or complete spare units can be provided upon request. Because of the long delivery time typically required to fabricate a recuperator or heat exchanger, we recommend purchasing replacement units in advance so they will be on hand when needed.
A spare parts inventory should be maintained for Thermal Transfer Corporation's fired heaters and gas coolers since these products incorporate fans, pumps and electrical components. However, since each design is unique, a customized spare parts list is required for each application. Therefore, standardized spare parts lists are typically not available for our products.
Heat Recovery Equipment Repairs
Many of Thermal Transfer Corporation's products are repaired in our manufacturing facility. Convection recuperators typically have tube failures on the hot side of the unit first, and replacing a few rows of tubes in this area is usually sufficient to put the unit back in good working condition. The cost associated with most of our repairs is typically a fraction of the cost of a new unit.
