Fast cleaning of finned heat exchangers

| By Chemical Engineering

1The JetMaster process was combined with the new JetPower system, which accelerates the cleaning of finned heat exchangers in the case of very large and heavily contaminated surfaces (photo). Finned heat exchangers can be very easily contaminated, often by sand, dust, pollen and other particulate matter. These contaminants form a layer that significantly reduces energy efficiency and can lead to reduced heat-exchange performance. Energy costs can quickly rise by 20% or more as a result. In addition, the corrosion caused by the contaminants can result in a shorter service life of the devices. The jet stream of the new system combination provides a stream diameter of up to 0.5 m; this allows even coarse contaminants to be quickly cleaned on large surfaces. — mycon GmbH, Bielefeld, Germany
