Cleaning Heat Exchangers With Chemical Descalers

484514809Heat exchanges are used in a wide range of appliances that we use in our daily lives including but not limited to furnaces, chillers, air conditioners, condensers and boilers. They are also widely used in manufacturing and processing sectors to cool air compressors, extruders, oil pumps and food processing equipment and among cooling and heating equipment.

Any buildup (as a result of settlement of sludge, corrosion, biological deposits, crystallization, polymerization, or decomposition of organic matter) in your heat exchanger system reduces its heat transfer effectiveness making it to operate less efficiently. This in turn increases its energy consumption, creates wear and tear and even worse, increases downtime in your plant. Accordingly, to maintain the efficiency of your heat exchange system, it is vital to perform preventive maintenance—at least once in year. This can vary depending on the type of heat exchanger.

Using Goodway’s Scale Removal System

One of the best methods for cleaning heat exchangers is using Goodway’s Scale Removal System, a portable descaler constructed of heavy duty polyethylene and various acid-proof components. The system removes scale because of its Flow Reversal valve. In the conventional descaling processes, lime scale dissolves, resulting into a buildup of foam and gas, which in turn can prevent further scale reduction. However, with the Flow Reversal Valve in the Goodway’s Scale Removal System, the foam and gas is released into the tank, eliminating the issue and enhancing the faster descaling.  The system is effective for all types of heat exchangers.

Goodway’s ScaleBreak Lquid Descalar

Inside Goodway’s Scale Removal System is the ScaleBreak Lquid Descalar, an industrial and biodegradable descaling chemical that dissolves debris quickly including lime, rust, calcium, carbonate, and other forms of debris found in heat exchangers. It doesn’t react with a wide range of materials including copper, iron, brass, plastic, and rubber hence very ideal for heat exchangers. It is also fortified with low-foaming wetting, corrosion inhibitors, and other penetrating agents. Using this versatile descaler can improve the efficiency of your heat exchanger and can go a long way in lengthening its lifespan.
