Exchanger Enhancement

Extend exchange lifetime

  • Chemical protection of critical chiller components (coil on air-cooled chiller, condenser on water-cooled chiller)
  • Protection from corrosion

Heat exchangers are the critical components in chillers that transfer energy between
water, refrigerant and the outside air. The characteristics of water and outside air — different at every site — determines the lifetime and efficiency of HVAC exchangers.

Water and system life expectancy

Water loops are complex systems which distribute the water that maintains your site at the desired temperature. They comprise numerous components which are sensitive to variations in water quality and velocity. These variations can determine the efficiency and lifetime of both the heat exchangers and the entire system. They can cause:
• Mechanical failure
• Chemical failure
• Fouling and scaling

Air and system life expectancy

Air-cooled chillers or air-to-water heat pumps are installed in a variety of environments. They are designed to transfer energy between the indoors and outdoors using a heat exchanger with fans. Trane exchangers are specially designed to maximize heat transfer, but polluted or corrosive conditions can impact the capacity of the exchanger and shorten its life.

The most common failure mode is a coil leak which will shut down your HVAC system. But long before a leak develops, your system is likely to suffer a gradual loss of performance accompanied by a gradual increase in energy consumption. An obstructed exchanger can cost as much as €3,500 in additional operating costs per year (based on a typical 650 kW capacity chiller, 4500 operating hours, 70 % load, 0,10€/kWh.)
