Marine Heat Exchanger Cleaning
Cleaning Marine / Boat Heat Exchangers is a MUST!
Marine water is full of contaminants that can foul and contaminante your marine or boat heat exchanger. Small life forms (zebra mussels, barnacles, etc.) in marine water can find their way into a heat exchanger. Microscopic life in lake or sea water can also begin to build up on the inside of marine heat exchangers. Additionally, the minerals or salt in the water itself can begin to build up and foul a heat exchanger.
Given all these contaminants in both lake and sea water, any heat exchanger that has these types of water flowing through it needs to be scheduled for routine cleaning. If neglected, the debris and fouling on the inside of the heat exchanger can be detrimental in the following ways:
- Contamination becomes a type of insulation; which degrades the efficiency of heat transfer in the device.
- The rate of fluid flow through the heat exchanger can also be reduced by contamination. When severe enough, reduced flow causes a serious impediment to the transfer of heat between fluids.
- Pressure drops can also occur due to a clogged heat exchanger.
Why to get your Marine Heat Exchanger Professionally Cleaned
Simple chemical solvents will often not eliminate all of the contamination and buildup on the inside of a marine heat exchanger. If you use only a chemical solvent once, you may have to do it again in the near future. Additionally, the leftover debris that a solvent leaves behind, can act as a scaffolding; upon which new buildup occurs. And, the cleaning chemicals for heat exchangers can be very caustic and therefore highly dangerous to use.
Professional cleaning of a heat exchanger can produce far superior results than a quick cleaning by hand or with solvents. And, you need a professional heat exchanger cleaner that can get your marine heat exchanger totally clean; therefore eliminating your problem for a long time.
Given the high cost of solvents for self cleaning, and the looming costs of replacing a heat exchanger, outsourcing the job to a professional is often the best option.
