Over time, air coolers generally become contaminated by built-up dust, dirt and scale. This has a negative impact on the cooler’s performance. Regularly cleaning your air cooler ensures that it continues to operate at full capacity.
CLEAN INTERCOOLER INCREASES EFFICIENCY OF SHIP'S ENGINE
Ship designs rely on air coolers or intercoolers to cool the air required by the ships engine during combustion. The cooler this air is, the more efficient the engine’s fuel combustion. Simply put: a clean, correctly-functioning air cooler does a better job – meaning that your ship’s engine consumes less fuel and has lower CO2 emissions.
CHEMICAL AND ULTRASONIC CLEANING OF AIR COOLERS
Air coolers are subject to two kinds of contamination. On the one hand, exhaust fumes passing through the cooler deposit particulates and grime on the cooler’s air fins. On the other hand, scale builds up on the surface of the tubes that serve as conduits for the cooling water. At CP Heat Exchanger Technologies, we use ultrasonic cleaning to clean the fins of your air cooler . This method enables us to remove all dust particles – even in the most difficult to access corners. Scaling on the air cooler is removed through a chemical cleaning process. You can also turn to CP Heat Exchanger Technologies for the repair or refurbishing of your air-cooled heat exchanger.
