|CHEMICAL CLEANING - ACID WASH
S.P. Thermal Systems Inc. will either perform or supervise Chemical cleaning where required. Deposit removal will INCREASE your System operating Efficiency.
When performed by experienced and professional people, chemical washes are SAFE and effective method of IMMEDIATELY INCREASING heat exchange efficiency. In most operations, chemical washes should not be routinely required with effective Water treatment programs. However, when deposits do develop, chemical cleaning can be justified, by FUEL SAVINGS and associated energy costs.
With new modern Technology, a properly applied Water Management program should eliminate the need for chemical cleaning. In many applications however older Technologies in use, or system component failure, will still necessitate periodic cleaning. Small amounts of deposits may not impair the reliability or production capacity of a boiler, however deposits will affect EFFICIENCY. Efficiency losses encountered over even SHORT PERIODS can INCREASE your yearly Fuel bill mich more than the cost of chemical cleaning.
It is a known fact that Thermal loss from equipment which is fouled due to scale deposits or other contamination can severely reduce the efficiency of the equipment.
In the case of BOILER SYSTEMS, the Thermal loss fom a depsit of as SMALL as 1/32 is an increase in fuel of 8.5% As most deposits are well in excess of this thickness, it is important that Boilers and Heat exchange Equipment are maintained FREE from any deposits.
Some boiler manufacturers of the New Low Volume Coil Tube design recommend that chemical cleaning is carried out, when deposits are found. This is important to prevent boiler tube failure, and HIGH maintenance cost.
WATER SIDE EFFICIENCY LOSS
1/32 DEPOSIT = 8.5% EXTRA Fuel
1/16 DEPOSIT = 12.5% EXTRA Fuel
1/8 DEPOSIT = 20% EXTRA Fuel
