Goodway Technologies, Stamford, Conn., and SWEP have formed a partnership to offer descaling solutions for SWEP industrial heat exchangers to help processes maintain efficiency and optimal heat transfer.
Brazed plate heat exchangers transfer energy with high efficiency and minimal thermal loss. When operating in environments with high temperatures or hard water, scale deposits from minerals within the water source may fall out of suspension and adhere to the heat transfer surface, creating an insulating barrier. This can have a detrimental impact on the heat exchanger’s performance and efficiency. In addition to efficiency loss, continued scale buildup can act as a breeding ground for particulate fouling, which can result in corrosion issues.
