December 2007: Cleaning with Inox Cleaner ® restores the transmission rate of temperature control units / cleaning ‚in situ’.

Hot and cold deposits of any kind (lime, ochre, bio films) reduce the heat exchange - in a boiler just as in process thermostats. A lime layer of 2 mm already reduces the transmission rate of a heat exchanger by approximately 20 %. Manufacturers of temperature control units, such as SINGLE, pay special attention to the design of their units to prevent deposits. Nevertheless every operator has to clean his temperature control unit sooner or later.
