Note: Specific application may differ depending on your equipment, layout, and other factors. Contact Us if you have any questions on how to most effectively use our descalers on your equipment.
Heat exchangers in many manufacturing facilities are very crucial in everyday operations. Heat exchangers are designed to transfer heat in the form of kinetic energy from one liquid to another. And while transferring heat, the heat exchanger, over a period of time will collect lime, scale and rust on the waterside of the exchanger.
With Dynamic Descaler, you do not have to dismantle or remove the unit from your operations. You may want to install a system, which will inject Dynamic Descaler into your water supply on a regular basis for your cooling tower, chiller, or your closed loop water system. This procedure will eliminate downtime in your everyday operations while cleaning out your exchanger.
Plate and Frame Heat Exchangers
The gasketed plate heat exchanger is built up by of a number of corrugated plates, channels are formed between the plates and the corner ports are arranged so that the two media flow through alternate channels. The heat is transferred through the plate between the channels, and complete counter-current flow is created for highest possible efficiency. The corrugation of the plates provides the passage between the plates, supports each plate against the adjacent one and enhances the turbulence, resulting in very efficient heat transfer.
Heat transfer efficiency up to five times that of other types of heat exchangers!
The industrial gasketed plate heat exchanger consists of a plate pack of corrugated metal plates with portholes for the passage of two fluids between which heat transfer takes place. The plate pack is assembled between a frame plate and a pressure plate and compressed by tightening bolts.
Some Plate Heat Exchangers are designed specifically for use in the food, dairy and brewing industries. A major feature of PHE’s used for this process is a sanitary plate designed to achieve optimum distribution of the product over the entire plate surface. These liquid food plants are designed for the concentration of malt, beer, yeast, fruit juices, pulp and other liquid food products to remove water and stabilize enzymes, prior to product storage.
The Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger, can also be used in the cooling and heating of fibrous materials, such as, fruit juices and fluids containing pulp, fruit purees, turbid fruit juices, dairy mixes, citrus pulp, and highly viscous liquids.
The unique capabilities of the PHE makes it suitable for a wide range of applications that extend beyond refrigeration such as: refrigerant evaporating & condensing, heat pumps, steam heating, engine or hydraulic oil cooling, swimming pool heating, and heat recovery for industrial applications e.g. waste water, dye works, paper manufacture etc.
Condensers and Chillers
Condensers and Chillers in many manufacturing facilities are very crucial in everyday operations. Condensers and Chillers are designed to transfer heat in the form of kinetic energy from one liquid to another. And while transferring heat over a period of time, it will collect lime, scale and rust on the waterside of the exchanger.
With our descalers, you do not have to dismantle or remove the unit from your operations. You may want to install a system which will inject our Descaler into your water supply on a regular basis for your condenser, chiller, or your closed loop water system. This procedure will eliminate downtime in your everyday operations while cleaning out your machines.
Liquid Vacuum Pumps
Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps use water, or any other suitable liquid, which acts as a “Liquid Piston”. Hence the name liquid ring. The liquid ring pump compresses by rotating a vane impeller located eccentrically within a cylindrical casing. Liquid (usually water) is fed into the pump by centrifugal acceleration, which forms a moving cylindrical ring against the inside of the casing. This liquid ring creates a series of seals in the space between the impeller vanes, which form compression chambers. The eccentricity between the impellers axis of rotation and the casting geometric results in a cyclic variation of the volume enclosed by the vanes and the ring.
The water entering the Vacuum Pump is what creates the vacuum. Over time, the pump will accumulate scale build up such as calcium, lime, dirt, and rust inside the Vacuum Pump. For pumps that have Stainless Steel internal parts, we recommend the Descale 518, and our Citric Descaler. For pumps that have Steel internal parts, we recommend the Dynamic Descaler. If you are cleaning used parts in a tank for later use, we recommend the Descale 518.
A reciprocating air compressor is normally a heavy-duty, continuous service compressor. Cylinder construction usually incorporates a water jacketed cylinder and water jacketed heads to remove some of the heat of compression and also to improve the lubrication and reduce carbonization of valve parts. Water jacketing around valve and packing is essential, since these are points of localized heating.
As time goes on, you will have lime, water scale and rust accumulation inside the water jackets, which in time, will overheat the air compressor. This will also occur in the intercooler and aftercooler. With Dynamic Descaler lime, water scale, rust remover you can clean these vital parts, without disassembling the cylinders, aftercooler, and the intercooler.
Just simply remove the water in/out connection from each part and circulate Dynamic Descaler for the recommended amount of time. After the circulation, flush with water and connect the water in/out connections back to the proper location.
If your compressor is running off a closed loop water system or a cooling tower, you may want to pour the Dynamic Descaler into one of these systems. This will eliminate the downtime in your plant operation versus disconnecting your in/out connections from each vital part.
For the proper amount of Dynamic Descaler and circulation times, please click below for downloadable instructions, including a quantities reference chart.
For proper quantity and circulating times to run Dynamic Descaler through the cooling tower or closed loop water system to clean the compressor, (without shutting down plant operations), please contact us.
Cooling Towers & Closed Circuit Water Cooling Systems
Dynamic Descaler dissolves Water Scale, Lime, Rust, and Dirt. When cleaning the cooling towers and closed circuit water cooling systems. You can accomplish this when the water cooled equipment is online and without the shutting down of your equipment. In order to dissolve all water scale, lime, rust and dirt from the waterside of your equipment, it is imperative that these instructions are followed exactly.
A boiler is a water containing vessel which transfers heat from a fuel source (oil, gas, coal) into steam, which is piped to a point where it can be used to run production equipment, to sterilize, provide heat, to steam-clean, etc.
The two main types of boilers are:
FIRE-TUBE: The fire or hot gas is directed through the inside of the tubes within the boiler shell, which is surrounded by water. The tubes are arranged in banks so that the gases can be passed through the boiler up to 4 times before passing out of the stack. This system exposes the maximum heat transfer surface to the water. Fire tube boilers, which are also know as a shell boilers, can produce up to approximately 750 hp or 25,000 lbs of steam per hour. 80% of boilers in use are this configuration.
WATER TUBE: The fire or hot gases are directed to and around the outside of the tubes container water, arranged in a vertical position. Water tube boilers are usually rectangular in shape and have two or more drums. The separation of steam and water takes place in the top drum, while the bottom drum serves as a collection point of sludge.
There are other designs with special configurations, adapting them to particular applications.
One of the biggest cause of a boiler failure is scale build up ( calcium, and rust )which down grades the performance of the these boilers. Our Descaler will eliminate the scale problem.
