Cleaning hybrid coolers

Practical example

JetMaster easily cleans considerable limescale residues from coated hybrid coolers

The sensitive fins of the seven consecutively positioned coolant lines were heavily coated with lime residues. The visible surfaces looked relatively clean due to previous cleaning attempts. One of these cleaning attempts was obviously carried out with the use of chemicals. However, almost the entire exchanger volume was still heavily coated with lime deposits, which were still ”clogged“ by the use of chemicals in some areas.

The mechanical cleaning of coated hybrid coolers with the patented mycon system JetMaster was carried out by Kipp Umwelttechnik, the sister company of mycon GmbH.

This means that the cleanliness of heat transfer devices is all the more important. Soiling on the blades forms an insulating layer that impairs the dissipation of heat into the ambient air by up to 30% or even more.

High-pressure water cleaners with a water consumption of between 10 and 40 litres per minute and per jet nozzle are often used for cleaning. In some cases, chemicals are used, too (lathering). This places a burden upon water resources and the environment. Moreover, high-pressure cleaning with water can damage the delicate blades.

The JetMaster was used without interrupting the operation of the plant while the rotors were running. Part of the residue was transported to the outside through the rotors.
JetMaster was able to completely remove the lime deposits without damaging the sensitive surfaces.
