Why air conditioning and refrigeration equipment installed in corrosive environments  will require a specialist heat exchanger coil treatment

 

Air conditioning and refrigeration heat exchanger coils which are installed in corrosive applications such as industrial, commercial, medical, process and marine environments have a reduced heat exchanger coil life span. Most air conditioning manufactures these days do not put a specialist treatment on their outdoor condensing unit coils which leaves them exposed to corrosion. The main obvious problems with a defective condensing unit coil is its ability to reject heat or cooling energy, this reduces the refrigeration effect making the refrigeration / air conditioning system operate out of it design parameters thus consuming more energy, making the system operate at higher temperature, increasing the chance of a refrigeration leak  and increasing the risk of a equipment breakdown.

 

Coil Rot:

 

The only air conditioning manufacturer that does treat its condensing coils as standard is Lg air conditioning. Their coils have a green / gold tinge in colour to them. These systems are used on a wide range of applications including commercial, medical, process and marine. LG air conditioning's Gold Fin outdoor heat exchanger is coated with a gold-coloured anti-corrosion epoxy treatment on the aluminium coil to prevent corrosion. This maintains excellent heat transfer properties of the coil for an extended time.

The other option is the Blygold treatment which is can be used on refrigeration as well as air conditioning coils either evaporators and condensing coils. The Blygold system is a well known application within the industry and is an anti-corrosion treatment consisting of a conversion layer followed by a polyurethane top coat. The operating temperature range is -50˚C to 180˚C. There is no loss of heat transfer performance and only a minimal change in air pressure drop. The 'Blygold' treatment can be applied to cooling and DX coils, run around coils, heating coils and heat pipes. Areas of application may include:- industrial, commercial, medical, process, marine etc. Blygold offers a 5 years warranty.
