Cleaning the air-water heat exchanger is essential for the smooth operation of your production plant. If your heat exchanger is not kept as clean as it should be, the heat exchanger may not function properly and the heat exchanger process will be inefficient. This will cause significant problems later if not fixed immediately. However, a simple cleaning will not be enough to keep everything in perfect condition. You need to use cooling tower cleaning instruments.

When the ambient or air temperature surpasses 130 degrees Fahrenheit, a highly specialized piece of machinery called an Air to Water Heat Exchanger is used. When the ambient temperature is this high, industrial air conditioners cannot effectively cool an engine because the refrigerant generated by the compressor is only around 150 degrees Fahrenheit, which is too low a temperature difference for the refrigerant to function.
The main goal of cleaning a water-to-air heat exchanger is to maintain the cleanliness of the water and air that are utilized to remove heat from your process system. You should be aware that when air is brought into your system, all air pollutants will enter the system with it, for instance, if the device in your system that pulls air is a cooling tower.
Once within the system, this waste can accumulate and restrict appropriate operation, eventually leading to a failure, possibly even a major one. Keeping your heat exchanger system clean thus appears to be the answer to this issue.
