Air compressor heat exchanger scaling reason and cleaning method

- Dec 16, 2017 -

After a long period of use, we may find fouling of the compressor heat exchanger equipment. Combined with the performance characteristics of the compressor heat exchanger equipment to analyze its structure is mainly affected by four factors, namely the fluid flow velocity, fluid properties, heat transfer wall temperature and heat transfer equipment parameters.

 

First, the impact of flow rate on fouling is more complicated for an air compressor heat exchanger, so we also need to consider its impact on fouling and fouling during analysis. In addition, in actual operation, increasing the flow rate will increase the energy consumption of the equipment.

 

Of course, the problem of fouling occurs. In most cases, it is not the result of a single factor. It is often the result of a combination of processes. At the same time these factors also exist between the interaction of the situation, so the air compressor heat exchanger surface dirt is often mixed with a variety of dirt together.

 

So, as a user, what kind of concrete descaling measures used? The current situation, you can choose according to the actual situation and different cleaning methods. For example, mechanical cleaning can be used to clean air compressor heat exchanger. Which can also be subdivided into powerful cleaning and soft mechanical cleaning.

 

Another commonly used cleaning method is called chemical cleaning, mainly refers to the use of some chemical cleaning fluid to make it react chemically with the dirt, so that the air compressor heat exchanger surface scale and other deposits Soluble, exfoliated or peeled off.

 

In addition to the above two methods, you can also use the physical cleaning methods, microbial cleaning, etc. to clean the compressor heat exchanger. On the compressor heat exchanger cleaning cycle is generally based on the degree of scaling of the equipment to decide. Timely cleaning helps keep the equipment running, resume production, and prevent dangerous attacks.
