Join us for the 2018 Total Heat Exchanger Performance Seminar & Expo

Achieving Legendary Success

Achieving the perfect balance of condenser efficiency and reliability is attainable through effective cleaning and testing. With this in mind, we've created the Total Heat Exchanger Performance Seminar & Expo, designed to help you maximize MW output and minimize risk of condenser related forced outages during your operating cycle. 

In association with:
  • RetubeCo
  • Plymouth Tube Co.
  • Beaudrey
When: February 6th & 7th, 2018
Location: Noah's On the Beach, Newcastle Australia
