Glacier Energy launches heat exchanger digital monitoring solution27 April 2021

Energy infrastructure service provider Glacier Energy has developed a new predictive maintenance tool for monitoring heat exchanger performance.

Led by Glacier Energy’s UK heat transfer team, HTX Digital uses existing data, combined with predictive analytics, to trend and predict the future performance and degradation of heat exchangers. The service is said to lead to smarter decision-making, and more effective maintenance scheduling.

Andy Scott, director of Glacier Energy’s heat transfer division, said: “HTX Digital has been designed by our in-house experts with a deep understanding of the complexities of heat transfer equipment and built by data scientists to solve common failures and maintenance challenges. Using specially designed analytics and algorithms, our subject matter experts can interpret heat exchanger data into meaningful insights that can be acted upon in real time, or predicted, to maintain and improve operational stability.”

Lost production in the UKCS due to heat transfer equipment failures, is estimated to be around £600million per annum. HTX Digital has the potential to reduce maintenance costs and unplanned downtime by up to 30%, according to Glacier Energy. Furthermore, it can measure and monitor the carbon footprint of heat exchangers to help reduce CO2 intensity and emissions from operations.
