Why air conditioning and refrigeration equipment installed in
corrosive environments will require a specialist heat exchanger coil
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.
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.
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.
Lg Gold Fin
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.
a specialist service on Blygold treatments so if you require your equipment
coated with a specialist protection for a specialist project contact us for advice and
treatment bookings. We offer a specialist international shipping and
treatment service for Africa, Europe, USA and Asia projects.
