Sediments on the heat exchangers surfaces reduce the heat transfer coefficient and heat exchange efficiency, and lead to significant energy losses. The paper discusses the method of express control of the sediment thickness on heat-exchange surfaces. The method is based on the analysis of attenuation of free oscillations parameters of the controlled product. Studies were conducted on models of the heat-exchange equipment surface, namely steel plates of 400 mm long, 160 mm wide and 2 mm thick, with different sediments thicknesses of 0, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 mm. The Wilcoxon’s rank sum test was used to determine the dynamics of the spectra changes. Studies have shown that the free vibration method allows one to determine not only the presence of deposits on the heat-exchange surfaces, but also their thicknesses.
