GDS-C40 descaling pump system up to 250 litres
The Goodway GDS-C40 is a small and compact descaling pump system, designed to circulate volumes of up to 250 litres. The system is mainly used to clean and descale smaller installations, such as heat exchangers, by means of a CIP (clean-in-place) procedure. This system is often used in the maritime industry for cleaning heat exchangers in tight, compact engine rooms.
The GDS-C40 is self-priming and has a polyethylene, acid resistant tank for maximum safety and ease of use. The descaling pump system can also circulate other fluids, such as glycol and antifreeze, to fill systems during colder (winter) periods.
Applications and usage
The GDS-C40 descaling pump system is mainly used to clean and descale smaller installations (heat exchangers). Common deposits such as limescale, rust and biological deposits can be easily removed by using Goodway's Scalebreak-MP industrial descaler. Examples of installations that can be cleaned with the GDS-C40 are:
Think of systems from well-known suppliers and manufacturers, such as: Trane, York, SWEP, Carrier, Multistack, McQuay etc.
Flow reversal valve
During the descaling process, limescale dissolves and creates foam and gas, a barrier to further scale reduction. Using the Flow Reversal Valve allows the foam and gas to discharge into the tank, eliminating the barrier effect and speeding up the descaling process. With standard pumps the hoses have to be converted to reverse the flow, with the GDS-C40 and GDS-C92 descaling pump systems you only have to turn the valve to instantly reverse the flow.
With most cleaning technologies it is necessary to partially or completely disassemble the plate heat exchanger. Especially when disassembling plates, this can take quite some time and cause further complications such as leakages due to plates being reassembled incorrectly after the cleaning procedure.
In most cases, a preventive CIP cleaning and maintenance program can offer a great solution. CIP basically means that the plate heat exchangers require as little disassembly as possible, before the cleaning can start. The system can remain on site and the plate pack can also stay compressed.
