Highly economical.
This can be diluted in the Ratio of 1:10 with water

ABS - 200(Special Descaler and Cleaner)

A descaler which does not contain harsh inorganic acids such as Hydrochloric, Sulphuric or Nitric. Also contains a specially formulated corrosion inhibitor, hence very safe on most metal surfaces. Fast penetration and dissolution of scale and rust. Economical, eco-friendly and can be slightly warmed for better results. Product best suited for stainless steel.
Dilution: Can be mixed with water in the Ratio1:1

ABS - 10 (Advanced Glass Cleaner)

Excellent glass cleaner. Does not leave any residue. Does not contain any hazardous solvents. All surfactants present are Biodegradable. Highly economical.
 This can be diluted in the Ratio of 1:25 with water

ABS - FINCARE (Coil Cleaner)

ABS - FINCARE is a unique blend of surfactants and cleaning agents used primarily for the cleaning of AHUs, FCUs and Radiators Fins cleaning. This Non-acid coil cleaner is Bio-degradable and is safe to use. The special foaming action brings the dirt from inside to outside. This can be diluted up to 5 parts with water depending on the dirt levels in the AHU/FCU and Radiators Fins
AHU AND AIRCONDITIONING COIL CLEANING 

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS

PROBLEM # 1   High Pressure Drop

When the pressure drop is high between the return and the supply air, the AIR FILTERS needs cleaning or replacement.

PROBLEM # 2   Low flow rate of supply air.
When the flow rate of supply air is low, the AIR FILTERS need cleaning or replacement.

CLEANING OF AIR FILTER:  Air Filter should be cleaned with warm water or detergent at least once a week.

PROBLEM # 3   Low temperature Drop
In spite of the air filter, the surface of aluminum fin coils tend to get contaminated by airborne foreign particles/substances or oxidized due to humid environment inside the casing. Both contamination and oxidation film becomes an insulation barrier which hinders the heat transfer between the air and refrigerant in the coils.

CLEANING OF FINS: This should be cleaned with FIN CLEAN

HOW TO EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF FIN COIL CLEANING

  1. Measuring the supply air flow rate before and after cleaning.
  2. Measuring the temperature of refrigerant return and supply air.
  3. Measuring the supply air temperatures before and after cleaning.

BENEFITS OF CLEANING AC COILS.

  • ENERGY SAVING_ Experience tells about 30% of electric power can be saved after cleaning dirty coils. (0.25 mm thick insulation layer).
  • Assures proper operating of the system.
  • Avoids sudden shut down of the systems. Dirty coils leads to mechanical damage to motors/blowers/compressors due to the heavy load.
  • Clean systems provide pleasant working environment at reduced electrical cost. Avoids ‘SICK BUILDING SYNDROME’. The dirty coils are the nests of germs, which over a period of time lead to diseases to people breathing and exposed to the polluted air through the air conditioner.

WHY CLEAN AIRCONDITIONING COILS.

A clean air-conditioning unit uses less electricity. An energy survey, based on Northern New Jersey 1982 electric rates, shows a cost of $540.00 per season for operating a simple 3-ton unit with a clean condenser coil, versus $756.00 if the coil is dirty. A savings of $216.00. For a 60-ton unit, it costs $ 11,368 to operate on dirty coils and $ 8120 if it’s clean, a savings of $3248.00. With the spiraling cost of energy, you can’t afford not to clean your air-conditioning coils regularly. Secondly, more air conditioners fail because they are running with dirty coils than because of mechanical problems. Dirty coils can cause head pressure to be 10% - 20% higher, thereby increasing unnecessary wear on motors, compressors, capacitors, switches, etc. Dirt and corrosion reduce the efficiency of the units, which causes it to run too frequently. An air conditioning  coil is designed to transfer heat. Dirt and corrosion on a coil act as an insulator that interferes with heat transfer. Thirdly, coil cleaning eliminates downtime. Regular cleaning reduces breakdowns. Units can be cleaned in-place, without DISASSEMBLY - which means additional savings.
