Plate heat exchanger, raw water
At this paper mill, a heat exchanger, heating raw water to the facility's water plant, were losing efficiency. In 2002 cleaning of the exchanger was conducted but the result was less than satisfactory and in 2003 decision was made to conduct a second cleaning.
After cleaning operation the temperature of the outgoing water was increased by 11,9°C, a huge improvement. The cleaning was conducted with minimal disturbance to other activities. Furthermore, there were no need to either seal off the working area or need for extra protective equipment. By using Bio Gen Active® Scale 130 a very successful reconditioning with minimal impact on the environment was achieved.
