The Problem Heat exchangers and cooling towers are found in many industries. The efficiency of any exchanger can be compromised when geo-thermal wells or cooling towers become contaminated by bacteria. Iron, sulfur and other species of bacteria adhere to the walls of the exchanger forming a gelatinous coat of bio- film reducing heat transfer. Occluded space increases temperature and pressure through decreased flow within the geothermal or cooling tower side of the heat exchanger. Insulating matter on the plates impedes heat transfer. Bio-toxin corrosion on plate surfaces reduces the plate heat transfer coefficient. Bio-film and planktonic bacteria can move downstream to occlude screens. In cooling towers, bio-slime coats surfaces and pathogenic bacteria such as legionella are released into the air. Additional energy use and increased green house gas discharge is associated with ineffective heat exchanger function. Labor associated with exchanger maintenance is costly.
The Answer is The APF Cleaning Protocol and I 2 Air Infused mixed media. The APF protocol cleans the surfaces of the heat exchanger and cooling towers. A once a month procedure that requires less than one hour per month labor time and no disassembly of the exchanger. It does not expose the staff to caustic chemicals or biofilms.
Throughout the month, the plate walls are continually bathe in extremely low dose I 2 bubbles which keep bio-films from forming in various ways;
Turbulent bubbles lift and dislodge bio-film. Low dose Iodine reduces microbial content Bubble flurry prevent planktonic bacteria from adhering to plate surface. Bubbles impart low dose iodine into water for downstream disinfection of cooling tower and diffusion screens
I 2 Air Fluid Effectiveness
The patented I 2 Air Fluid Infusor Cartridge produces I 2 infused bubbles that are dosed for accurate elution. Elutes only grams per month into water stream. Adjustable based on need and standards. are unaffected by water temperature, turbidity, mineral content or pH. converts to Eco-Friendly iodide after contact with bacteria. will not effect most materials. will have the same effect on microbes as much higher concentrations. are negatively charged.
The cell wall is exposed continually to new low dose iodine within the air bubbles. Iodine is drawn into the cell and key amino acids in the respiratory chain are broken down. The bacteria is destroyed. The I2 infused air molecule eliminates free floating bacteria and bacteria resident in existing biolms. Iodine converts to Eco-friendly iodide and moves downstream.
Bio-film formation 7 days post APF cleaning without i2 bubble exposure. Note plate condition.
Does it work? Results after 8 month protocol use; 300 GPM geothermal well system; Inlet pressure: 13 psi avg. and outlet pressures 4 psi avg. Total labor: 75 minutes per month with NO exchanger breakdown! What about the diffusion screens? “We have been running one 300 GPM supply well. We have left all 3 diffusion wells open. Each diffusion well has a capacity of 300 GPM. In order to determine if all 3 diffusion wells are working properly, we turned two off at a time so that we tested each diffusion well by itself to ensure that it was taking 300 GPM. All 3 took the 300 GPM of water without increases in incoming or outgoing pressure at the heat exchanger. I took that to mean that all 3 diffusion wells are working properly.”
The benefits; T he APF Cleaning Protocol and I 2 Air Infused mixed media; Increases system efficiency. Effectively removes bio-film and minerals. Eliminates exchanger breakdown. Prevents the reformation of bio-films. Does not use caustic chemicals. Uses very low dose iodine. Does not allow exchanger cleaner into groundwater or well. System down time is under 1 hour per month. Low cost of use. Does not expose staff and environment to bio-films and dangerous chemicals. Environmentally friendly.
