HEIST Integrity testing

World patent HEIST integrity testing HEIST validated by the Bernal Institute

HEIST is an acronym for Unison Engineering Services Ltd's newly developed
Heat Exchanger Integrity Self- Test system. HEIST detects for cracked plates in most pasteurizers and PHEs. HEIST technology is fully automatic, non-destructive, reliable and fast. This innovative and integrated self-test system makes daily testing possible and HEIST uses only process water to detect cracks as small as 30μm. HEIST System also carries out fully automatic holding time testing whenever this test is required.

• Worldwide Patent Approval

• Validated By The Bernal Institute, University of Limerick


BENEFITS OF THE
HEIST SYSTEM

  • Non-destructive fully automatic Plate Heat Exchanger testing technology. No need to dismantle the PHE resulting in minimum downtime.

  • Requires process water only. No need for gas or chemical solutions resulting in no introduction of possible contaminants.

  • Testing only takes minutes.

  • Test can be carried out every day prior to production.

  • Immediate, on the spot integrity results at point of test.

  • Test certificate generated by HEIST after each test.

  • HEIST allows the user to take control of all validation. Testing of complete system can be controlled by the vendor.

  • HEIST is the only integrated self test system available on the market.

Avoid Product Loss
and Contamination

Micro cracks and holes in pasteurisers, heat exchangers, pressure vessels, heater coils and jacketed tanks can result in product contamination due to service liquid leakage.
Typically, these defects are difficult to diagnose without dismantling the equipment, resulting in unwanted and expensive downtime. This time-consuming process can lead to significant loss of production and profit.
For this reason Unison's minimum disruption, integrated HEIST System is the best solution for your PHE crack testing.

HOW DOES
HEIST WORK?

The technology relies on the detection of a pressure increase in a closed volume of the heat exchanger. There is no comparable self-testing system presently available on the market making the HEIST System a one of a kind heat exchanger testing technology. The HEIST System is capable of detecting leaks to an accuracy of 30μm in plate heat exchagers. The test is rapid, with results generated between 1-15mins (PHE size dependant).
A failed test result suggests closer inspection of the plate pack to identify leaks. So with the HEIST System, detection of cracked plates is very simple, validating the benefit of having this technology integrated in your process system.
