Heat exchanger, Real estates


Due to decreased cooling capacity from sea water, extra cooling was needed from refrigerating machines with extra cost as consequence. The heat exchangers of the system were heavy fouled with deposit. 


The effect on the exchanger increased from 1022 kW to 1226 kW, ~ 200kW, which represents a saving of about 20.000 EUR per year (2005). In addition, a much smoother flow was obtained which also had a positive impact on production and energy consumption. Furthermore, the cleaning was performed with minimal impact on other operations. The choice of Bio Gen Active® resulted in a successful treatment with minimal environmental impact.
