These deposits can be cleaned safely/mechanically from the condenser without risking acid damage to
condenser pumps and valves.
The endplates are removed quickly to provide complete access to the water tubes. A simple cleaning tool is
inserted and powered by an ordinary electric drill to remove the corrosive material.
REPLACING THE GASKETS ON THE ENDPLATE IS ADVISED WITH EACH CLEANING.
Alternate Chemical Cleaning of Condenser: The following alternate procedure is recommended as a combined
cleaning and descaling process. It will quickly and economically restore the original operation efficiency of the sea
water refrigeration condenser when thorough mechanical cleaning cannot be performed.
188.8.131.52 Detailed Procedure:
Drain and flush the water circuit of the condenser coil; if scale on the tube inner surfaces is
accompanied by slime, mechanical cleaning is necessary before descaling process can be
