Autumn, 2 maintenance steps for industrial chillers

Date:Oct 12, 2020

With the fall in temperature and the advent of winter, it is very important to start to consider the cleaning of the autumn chiller. Properly cleaning the chiller can prevent harmful bacteria and containment from accumulating in the chiller water tank, and it can be better maintained when the system is restarted next season. We want to serve here to make sure you know the proper steps to take and the reasons why the chiller is shut down professionally in the fall.


Industrial Air Cooled Water Chiller


   cleaning and disinfection


   After the weather is cold enough to make sure that you will not need the chiller for the time being, it is time to clean and disinfect the cooler. Regardless of the season, you need to clean and disinfect at the end of the season. Routine preventive maintenance in summer. This is because bacteria will grow in the chiller throughout the winter. Not to mention, the water flowing through the cooler may also leave deposits that must be removed before shutting down the cooling system.


  The cleaning process starts with adding a fungicide and biodispersant to the cooler water. The goal of this step is to kill the creature to reduce its activity. In addition to bacteria, the cooler can also contain several different types of fungi, algae and mold. Bactericides and dispersants are designed to destroy these organisms and prevent the growth of mold and fungi, which can lead to slime and coolers that are harmful to the organisms.


   Once the disinfectant has been placed in the cooler for the recommended time, drain the cooler and open it, and then remove the bell. After removing the bell, the test tube must be thoroughly cleaned to remove any particulate deposits, and the test tube must be checked for rust and scale accumulation, which may cause leakage and performance degradation next spring. If most of the piping of the chiller is within the expected service life, it is wise to conduct further testing to determine if there are any dents, thinning of the pipe wall or cracks in the thin lines, which indicates that all should be replaced before winter pipeline. And/or the cool season of late spring and early summer.
