Refinery Operations Excellence

Case Study: Refinery

Gerlinger's Proven Industry Experience

Gerlinger has been working with Refineries to streamline general material handling of long and heavy loads and heat exchanger bundles since the mid 1980’s.

When a long term customer approached us in 2010 to help solve one of the biggest problems, we jumped at the chance. The collaboration resulted with a customized, simple solution that saves time, steps, and reduces costs associated with moving and cleaning fragile heat exchangers.

The Problem:

  • Refineries plan periodic cleaning of heat exchangers during turn around operations.
  • Transporting and handling of these large bundles is time consuming, expensive, and prone to damaging the bundle.

The Solution:

  • Gerlinger Carriers and revolutionary Tube Bundle Rollers


Gerlinger Carriers and our TBRs simplify transportation, general material handling, and offer the unique ability to rotate various styles and size of heat exchangers during cleaning.

The combination improves productivity and safely rotates the heat exchanger during cleaning without damaging the system – just what the refinery envisioned.
