Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger Service

OnSite and OffSite Services.

Universal Heat Transfer Products, a division of T. H. Industrial Solutions Inc.'s (THS) has been servicing industrial heat exchangers and solving process problems across Canada since 2009. THS head office is located in Pickering, Ontario with a 6,000 square foot service center in Hamilton, Ontario.

(1-2 Days) On or Offsite


A portable chemical flushing unit consists of a pump, tank, filter and hoses. THS service technicians pump a citrus based cleaning chemical or mild acid solution through the heat exchanger for 6-8 hours, during the flushing any debris is collected in the filter.

*The level of success for this cleaning method is determined by the amount and type of contamination. If the scale has hardened, which is very common on heating applications, the chemical flush effectiveness can be limited.

THS is equipped to provide pressure testing, individual tube vacuum testing and plugging leaking tubes on or offsite.

*Repair and/or replacement turnaround is based on part availability

(2-3 Days) On or Offsite


Recommended for heat exchanger tubes that have hardened scale, the bonnet must be removed. High pressure cleaning and/or Roto-Jet rods with cleaning brushes and drills are inserted into each tube to grind or cut away scale or contamination.


THS is also equipped to provide pressure testing, individual tube vacuum testing, complete tube replacement and tube plugging both onsite and at our Hamilton Service Center.

*Repair and/or replacement turnaround is based on part availability

(2 – 3 Weeks) Offsite


Tube bundle or complete heat exchanger is serviced at one of our service facilities. A mild acid solution is pumped through the heat exchanger for 6-8 hours, during the flushing all debris is collected in the filter. Before and after flow rates are recorded to gauge the effectiveness of the cleaning.

Extreme fouling applications - tube bundle is submerged in a heated chemical bath.
After 4 hours the bundle is removed and high pressure washed.
If the contamination remains the process is repeated.

A borescope is utilized to examine the tube internals before and after chemical cleaning. Pressure testing is completed on both the bundle and shell.

(2 – 10 Weeks) Offsite


Stock replacement delivery is approximately 2-4 weeks; Custom fabricated can be manufactured in approximately 6-10 weeks. Without drawings, the bundle will need to be removed and measured to fabricate a replacement.

Industrial Oil Cooler Cleaning / Cleaning Services

We Clean Industrial Oil Coolers. Oil cooler service across many industries. Oil Cooler clients are provided superior cleaning results.

Oil cooler maintenance in Ontario and beyond

THS is fully equipped to repair and service industrial oil coolers (internal/external) cleaning, flushing and pressure testing. The Oil Cooler Service Centre can overhaul and refurbish your system.

If your oil cooler has failed, we can recore your cooler or supply a replacement.

Failure of an oil cooler can lead to failure of the engine or the component it is designed to cool. An oil cooler is a heat exchanger which is responsible for cooling your equipment's oil. It removes excess heat by continuously passing through a heat exchanger which is cooled by air or water.

A failing oil cooler can also cause contamination of the cooling system. A THS Service Team can service and pressure test your oil cooler to ensure it is performing at its best.

The oil cooler is a major heat exchanger component for your equipment, removing excess heat from your cooling system. Oil cooler maintenance prevents failure, that can lead to engine failure if left unchecked. THS Oil Cooler Service provides regular servicing and pressure testing of your oil cooler in Ontario

An oil cooler is an essential component of your equipment's cooling system. During operation, it's responsible for regulating the temperature of your equipment's oil.

Industrial equipment often operates in harsh environments. Radiators are subject to damage and premature breakdowns. T.H. Industrial solutions offer cooling solutions to improve the durability and performance of your industrial equipment. We will service, repair, upgrade, and supply new replacement radiators and coolers. Along with custom solutions to fit your specific application.

Innovative products and solutions are available to prolong the life of your radiators, such as solder coating, Shield cores, dummy rows, corrosion resistant paints, and tank upgrades. THS Service experience in the industrial sector is here to help you.


  1. When vacuum breakers or thermostatic vents are not installed or functional the tube can be sucked in and break.

  2. If the bundle is subjected to temperature extremes, (thermal shock), the tubes will develop spiral cracks.

  3. On steam applications, harmonics can occur. This constant vibration can cause the steel baffles to eventually cut into the copper tubes.

  4. Chemical corrosion resulting from interaction between the heat exchanger and the circulated fluids.

  5. this results in higher corrosion and restricts heat flow

Universal Heat Transfer Products (UHTP), a division of T.H. Industrial Solutions Inc. (THS) has been servicing industrial plate and frame heat exchangers as with shell and tube heat exchangers.  Professionally solving process problems across Canada since 2009.
