Innovas Technologies’ mission is to help their customers save money through an obvious but little known solution. They believe energy conservation is the largest opportunity for a sustainable future and our products are designed to provide highly measurable environmental and financial impacts. Specifically they believe there is a better way than the status quo of accepting fouled heat exchangers and manual or chemical cleaning as a necessary evil so we endeavor to provide innovative and effective technology to optimize heat transfer efficiency. They believe there is always a better way and we prove it every day!
Innovas’ solutions prevent fouling in your cooling system, so you save energy, water and money — leaving you with a clear conscience.

Helios Automatic Tube Cleaning System
The Helios tube cleaning system is installed on heat exchangers and keeps the tubes clean without time-consuming intervention. Specialized cleaning balls are injected at set intervals into the cooling water flow. The balls rub the tubes clean and are then trapped at the outlet of the heat exchanger, where they are prepared for the next cleaning cycle.
Typical installations, such as central chilled water plants in hospitals or universities, require less than 20 man-hours and only 8 hours of process shutdown. Ball traps are available in a variety of shapes and flow configurations to integrate easily with existing pipe runs and available space for installation.
Our Helios continuous condenser cleaning technology prevents heat exchanger tubes from accumulating mud, scale, or biological fouling. Without Helios, these deposits accumulate over time and significantly degrade the performance of your heat exchanger. With the Helios system, many clients see a 10-15% average gain in energy efficiency, with savings up to as much as 25%.
Centinel Intelligent Sensor Ball
Introducing the future of heat exchanger monitoring and optimization technology, Innovas Technologies is proud to announce the development of the first ever submersible, micro-mobile sensor package designed to give the operator a clear view of the status of an operating shell and tube heat exchanger. Aptly named “Centinel” the new sensor balls are intended to operate in tandem with regular sponge cleaning balls working in our Helios Tube Cleaning System (TCS).
Historically, maintenance of shell and tube heat exchangers has always included manual cleaning, inspection and manual Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) via eddy current testing. These events have always taken place during both planned and unplanned shutdowns. Centinel and the Helios TCS will eliminate the need to manually clean heat exchangers and will provide online tube health readings continuously while the shell and tube exchanger is operating. Furthermore, Centinel will enable fine level flow adjustments through very accurate speed and temperature readings throughout the full length of an operating exchanger. Follow on versions will include heat exchanger eddy current testing on a continuous basis during heat exchange operation.
