by Brianna Crandall — January 24, 2018 — Goodway Technologies, producer of mechanical and chemical HVAC cleaning solutions, recently launched several new calculators to help facilities managers (FMs) and personnel understand the impact descaling solutions can have on their bottom line and overall efficiency, while also helping to determine how much descaler is required. If you are responsible for maintenance of chillers, boilers, heat exchangers, cooling towers, compressors or condensers, it’s not a matter of if you’ll experience scale buildup, but a question of when, asserts Goodway. Even a small amount of scale can rob your equipment of efficiency, adds the company.
According to Tim Robb, vice president, Marketing and Strategic Business Development for Goodway:
Most HVAC and facility professionals understand that scale deposits negatively impact efficiency, but many don’t know just how much. These free calculators offer an easy way to see how much money even the lightest scale is costing in lost efficiency, plus identify how much descaler is needed to complete a maintenance job.
Goodway’s expanded library of free online calculators now includes:
- Boiler Descaling Calculator
- Chiller Descaling Calculator
- Cooling Tower Descaler Calculator
- Fluid Cooler and Evaporative Condenser Calculator
- Plate & Frame Heat Exchanger Descaling Calculator
- ScaleBreak-Gel Calculator
- Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger Calculator
Goodway Technologies offers both mechanical and chemical cleaning solutions for heat exchangers. ScaleBreak industrial descaling chemicals are widely used in HVAC, facility, plants, power generation, and food-and-beverage production applications to safely dissolve lime scale and hard mineral deposits quickly and easily.
The product line features multiple formulas to match up to the base metals and materials of the machinery being descaled. Applications include descaling boilers, cooling towers, plate-and-frame and shell-and-tube heat exchangers, pumps, and any hydronic system with scale issues.
In addition to offering descaler systems and chemicals, Goodway has in-house chemical engineering experts available to help analyze the scale and develop a customized solution. Visit the Goodway Web site for additional resources and product information.
