Refrigeration Oil Analysis and Cleansing
The only contents within a refrigerant system should be refrigerant and oil. Modern polyester oils are very hydroscopic. Every time intrusive work is carried out, moisture is inadvertently allowed to enter the system. Moisture mixed with polyester oil turns into acid, which leads to system degradation and component failures. Acid attacks the electrical insulation within compressor motor windings – eventually leading to an electrical compressor failure or what is commonly called a “burn-out”.
ICS Cool Energy can analyse the oil within your refrigeration circuit to identify early signs of potential failure, noting moisture, acid and metallurgy. We’ll then make recommendations in line with the results.
Preventative action can increase the life of components and prevent expensive compressor failures if caught early.
Our highly qualified engineers utilise our Ref-Cleanse system which provides a cascade, triple filtration process. The system components are segregated, and refrigerant flushed through each area. All contaminates including oil, carbon, debris, sludge and any trace of moisture are completely removed from the circuit which is returned to an “as new” status.
Additionally, we can recycle contaminated refrigerant that would normally have to be disposed of, reducing impact on the environment and creating considerable savings.
Benefits of Ref-Cleanse:
- Extended lifecycle of equipment
- Prevent expensive component failures
- Avoids costly virgin refrigerant through recycling
- No need to use inferior solvents or cleaning agents
- System is quickly returned to full operating performance and efficiency
