The conventional method of extremely cleaning heat exchanger coils with high pressure water is one of the most effective ways to decrease efficiency of your air-cooled heat exchanger. high pressure water can flatten and mash together the fragile cooling fins and tends to compact the dirt and debris towards the center of the heat exchanger. Over time, these conditions contribute to the breakdown of the cooling process and, as a result, reduce production capacity.
The chemical foam cleaning step is engineered to surround and contact 100% of the surface area of the finned tube in a gentle bath while providing the most powerful cleaning solution available. The foam's soaking solution available. The foam's soaking action goes to work, breaking the bond between the fins and the air-flow restricting dirt and debris.
After the foam loosens the debris, GSP will use our vast experience in cleaning and a knowledge of the external fins in heat exchange coils, to calculate the pressure that is needed to wash the debris from the cooler. Because the bind is broken, less pressure will be needed so there will be no fin damage.
The cleaning water can be washed to the plant drain or special containment can be used to collect the cleaning waste.
The chemical foam cleaning method followed by a variable pressure wash will typically improved the performance of the fin fan by an improved of 5 to 16o depending upon how dirty it is. On very dirty fin fans, a 200C improved is possible.
