Heat exchangers are vital to many different industries, but only if they’re working properly. If you’re not cleaning your heat transfer coils and your shell and tube heat exchangers get caught up in the dirt and grime, you’re going to be in a world of hurt.
Keeping your parts clean and running smoothly will help your whole operation run smoothly. One part breaks and the whole thing could come crumbling down as a result. So if you’re ready to get clean and keep your equipment running smoothly, here are a few great tips to help you get everything in tip top shape.
Keep a Schedule
The most important rule of cleaning any piece of equipment is knowing when to clean it. Setting a regular cleaning schedule is incredibly important and can save you a lot of time, money, and stress in the long run. Your cleaning schedule may vary depending on the exchanger in question, so make sure you’re paying attention to how often the equipment is being used and to what extent it’s being used. A piece of equipment that’s being run more vigorously and more often than another will require more frequent cleanings.
Clean With Pressure Washers
High pressure water jetting is hands down one of the best ways to clean any piece of equipment, be it a car or a heating device. Not only is it effective, but it’s environmentally friendly. Simple jets of water allow you to get into nooks and crannies while blasting off all of the hard, caked on material that may have built up. No chemicals necessary! No matter what you’re cleaning, starting with a high pressure water jet is a great idea.
When you can’t clean it yourself, call in a trusty piece of technology to help you do the job. Robotic heat exchanger cleaning methods can be extremely useful and effective, not to mention they allow maintenance to be performed as well.
Cleaning your equipment is one of the most important things you can do for it. Without clean equipment, your business might not function the way it needs to in order to be successful. Read more.
