In this blog, you will read all the benefits of low pressure coil cleaning. We will explain the process, but also the advantages against other cleaning methods. Furthermore we will also explain the potential savings and/or risk decreases, when using low pressure coil cleaning equipment.
Low Pressure Coil Cleaning
Coil cleaning is crucial for condensers, drycoolers and other air cooled systems. The coils of these systems are very prone to deposit buildup, in forms of microbiological fouling and/or other types of fouling. This could also be pollen from trees or dust in the air.
When this buildup is not removed it will weaken the air flow and this the capacity of the system(s). Coils need to be cleaned regularly. When they are full of atmospheric pollution, the airflow will drop greatly. As a result, the system has to operate more and harder to achieve the same results. This not only increases the energy consumption, but also shortens the lifespan of the system.
High pressure cleaning systems are often used to clean, while this is not the right choice. When working with high pressure, the chance of flattening the coils is much higher. In addition, the low water flow is not enough to ensure optimal rinsing of the system. Goodway's cleaning systems offer a low pressure (+-30 BAR) with a flow of 12 litres/minute. This makes it very unlikely that any fins will be flattened. Furthermore, there is enough water available to flush the coils properly.
Advantages low pressure coil cleaning
- Safety: When cleaning with high pressure, the chance of damages the fins is fairly large. Goodway's cleaning systems offer a low pressure (+-30 BAR) with a flow of 12 litres/minute. This makes it very unlikely that any fins will be flattened. Furthermore, there is enough water available to flush the coils properly. Contrary to high pressure cleaning methods. Also, this makes it possible to internal staff to use this equipment, due to the fact that minimum training is required to operate these systems.
- No dissasembly: Goodway Benelux offers a lot of different accessories to make the cleaning easier, more effective and less time consuming. One of these tools is called the ''Wonderwand''. It is basically a long, thin lance with a 90 degree sprayer on the end of the tool. This is especially interesting when larger V-type systems are cleaned, or when the backside of the coil is hard to reach due to limited spacing.
This tool allows for a cleaning from the inside out, which is also better with regards to the airflow. The most important factor, is that you do no longer have to dissasemble the fans on top of the system. Because the wonderwand is so thin, it can most of the times be pushed through the fan. Allowing him/her to clean from the inside out. Which is not only a lot less time consuming, but also greatly adds to the overal cleaning effect of the system!
Coil cleaning is not only easy to perform, but also greatly contributes to a better maintenance of your air cooled heating- and or cooling systems. Use this equipment to not only increase and maintain optimum efficiency, but also lengthen the lifetime of them.
