Chiller cleaning

  Most of the cooling water contains calcium, magnesium ions and acid carbonates. Carbonate formation occurs when cooling water flows through the metal surface. In addition, oxygen dissolved in cooling water can also cause metal corrosion and rust formation. Due to the generation of rust, the heat transfer effect of the air-cooled machine is reduced. In severe cases, cooling water must be sprayed on the outside of the housing. When the scale is severe, the tube will be clogged and the heat exchange effect will be lost. The data from the study shows that scale deposits have a significant effect on the heat transfer losses, which can increase energy costs as sediments increase. Even a thin layer of scale will increase the operating cost of more than 40% of the scale in the equipment. Maintaining the absence of mineral deposits in the cooling channels can improve efficiency, save energy, extend equipment life, and save production time and costs.

  For a long time traditional cleaning methods such as mechanical methods (scraping, brushing), high-pressure water, and chemical cleaning (pickling) have caused a lot of problems when cleaning the equipment: they cannot completely remove deposits such as scales, and the acid causes corrosion to the equipment and form a loophole. Residual acid causes secondary corrosion or corrosion under the scale, eventually leading to the replacement of equipment. In addition, the cleaning waste is toxic and requires a large amount of funds for wastewater treatment.

 In view of the above situation, efforts have been made at home and abroad to develop cleaners that are less corrosive to metals, and those that have been successfully developed have the cleaning agents for the world. The utility model has the characteristics of high efficiency, environmental protection, safety, and no corrosion. The utility model not only has good cleaning effect but also does not corrode the equipment, and can ensure the long-term use of the condenser. Safex Tektronix cleaning agent (exclusive addition of wetting agent and penetrant, can effectively remove the most stubborn scale (calcium carbonate), scale, grease, slime and other deposits produced in water equipment, and will not cause human body Damage will not cause corrosion, pitting, oxidation or other harmful reactions to materials such as steel, copper, nickel, titanium, rubber, plastics, fibers, glass, ceramics, etc., which can greatly extend the service life of the equipment.
