Product Spotlight: The Sludge 2: EAHU #5
Last week’s blog received such a response that it warranted an encore performance.
Not only are air handler condensate pans affected by sludge buildup, but so are evaporative coolers. This is never more evident than in an account submitted to us by one of our distributors.
The unit in question, EAHU #5, had been neglected for years. Preventive maintenance had become deferred maintenance, which eventually led to ignored maintenance. We could take paragraphs describing the condition of the unit, the rust and corrosion of the motor and support structures, the scale deposits on the pads and the condition of the cell deck. However, we think the picture explains it all. Imagine those water particles floating in your air!
At CRT, we developed our Timed Release Product Line to essentially eliminate scale, clogs and buildup. By using the following product, cooler pads and basins remain clean and deposit free, protecting assets from costly maintenance and saving capital otherwise spent on utility bills.
Cooler Guard is a timed-release polymer block that protects against scaling damages and accumulation on evaporative cooler pads and basins. Users are able to cut water expenses virtually in half as a bleed is not needed when using Cooler Guard. Once installed, an evaporative cooler remains clean four to six weeks, depending on mineral concentration of the water.
