Chemical Cleaning of calorifiers is necessary because a build up of scale and variable temperatures encourages the growth of bacteria. This poses a health risk to the users of the system and also reduces the operating efficiency of the calorifier resulting in higher running costs and early replacement.
Access into industrial calorifiers is limited, so a chemical based cleaning method is required. With regular monitoring of the system, the potential of high bacteria counts will be limited and will also ensure compliance with codes of practice and protect staff, customers and the public.
