Feature: Rodeco – Local Sand Blasting

I had a very friendly visit from Josh Courson last week and had the honor of learning about the local company he is an employee of.
Ironically, Rodeco does a service that is needed with preparation before using some of our products. Generally, everyone associates CRT aka Controlled Release Technologies with Pan In A Can aka Pancrete. Granted, we have several other products that we engineered ourselves and manufacture in house, Pancrete is our bread & butter and one reason we are set apart as a manufacturer and vendor in the HVAC Industry.

Pancrete is a permanent resurfacer for Heating & Air condensate drain pans. It does miracles when it comes to restoring and/or refurbishing a pan verses having to replace an entire HVAC system. It has transformed many HVAC units as well as saved clients billions of dollars as Pancrete has been in existence & successful for 16 years.
One of the reasons Pancrete has been so successful is because of the minimal prep work that is done before the application. This is something that can be done yourself. However, there are many ways to make it easier on YOU. Who doesn’t want to save time & reduce downtime ? That’s what I thought. EVERYONE WANTS TO SAVE TIME & REDUCE THAT DOWNTIME.

Well, here is a solution! Rodeco is a local NC business that offers several different services. One of these services is sandblasting which can make things a bit easier when doing the prep work of removing dirt, rust, and debri out of a “past the point of no return” HVAC pan.

So, if you are local and are in need of a great company to assist you with prep work to save downtime. Contact Rodeco at 877-781-0834, email them at info@rodeco.com or you can visit their website at http://www.rodeco.com


If you have anyone in your area that has been a great deal of help to you, let us know!
We would love to hear the feedback of who has made things easier on you.

Product Spotlight: Reduce HVAC Energy Consumption Through Proper Cleaning

HVAC systems account for over half of the energy used in commercial and residential buildings. For this reason alone, it is important to keep energy expenditures to a minimum.Excessive energy use by the HVAC system is usually due to improper or irregular maintenance of the equipment. Therefore, a regularly scheduled cleaning and maintenance plan helps sustain HVAC equipment while reducing energy consumption and improving energy efficiency.

One of the main causes of HVAC energy consumption is due to thermal discomfort. Occupants are dissatisfied with the buildings thermal temperature and adjust the thermostat, increasing energy costs. However, proper cleaning and preventive maintenance allow the HVAC system to quickly obtain and maintain the desired temperature and humidity levels. The HVAC system works less to heat or cool the building, which satisfies both occupants and building owners.

At CRT, we have developed the following products to clean HVAC systems. By using our Quick Cleansing Product Line, coils, condensate pans, and system interiors remain clean and buildup free, saving users money and making HVAC systems more efficient.

Fast Attack

Fast Attack is an EPA registered, concentrated iodine sanitizer. Iodine was chosen as the active ingredient, as its effectiveness is well known and widely used in hospitals and laboratories. Fast Attack quickly and conveniently cleans and sanitizes the interior surfaces of HVAC systems, removing odor-causing algae, fungus, bacteria and mold.

Instant Powder Kegs

Instant Powder Kegs is a highly concentrated cleaning powder that removes efficiency-hindering buildup from all HVAC coils. Unlike other coil cleaners, instead of diluting down the product, Instant Powder Kegs is mixed up with water to the desired strength. Instant Powder Kegs will not separate or leak, and is easily transportable due to its compact nature.

 Clean Bond

Clean Bond is a concentrated liquid cleaner that is also used when preparing HVAC air handler units for resurfacing. When diluted, Clean Bond cleans and removes efficiency-hindering buildup and grease from all HVAC system metal surfaces. When concentrated, Clean Bond inhibits flash rusting, and is formulated to act as an additional adhesion agent.

Technical Corner: The Nature of Chemical Solubility Part One

The dissolving rate of chemical substances plays a very important role in many everyday activities.

When washing dishes or floors, users would like the detergent to be present in large amounts to attack and remove dirt. Fortunately, most liquid detergents are readily dissolved, and react quickly with debris to help remove it. However, when one wishes to have a constant residual of a vitamin or drug in their body, a timed-release or controlled release substance is more appropriate.

For example, a medical doctor may indicate a dosage rate of 10 milligrams should be maintained for 12 hours to produce a desired effect for a patient. However, if one used a liquid or highly soluble tablet, the effect would not last 12 hours.

If the same patient is given an initial controlled release amount of 100 milligrams, the substance can time-release the dispersal of 10 milligrams every hour for 10 hours. This extends its effectiveness so that the body is able to use it up to 10 times longer.

Along with providing extended periods of effectiveness, controlled-release materials also contain fewer ingredients and require less doses.

Controlled Release In an Industrial World

In the industrial world, such as HVAC or other maintenance areas, there are many situations where a controlled release of materials is necessary.

At the heart of every building is its HVAC system, providing vital, conditioned air to occupants. Unfortunately, these important systems operate in dark and damp environments, making them prime areas for the growth of offensive microbes such as bacteria and mold.One of the worst areas in the HVAC system is the water collection pan, which is present in every system.

In the past, maintenance staffs were available to clean these condensate pans frequently, avoiding odors and biological buildup. However, over the past decades, the amount of maintenance staff has dropped consistently. Todays staffing personnel are scarce and have more workload.

In today’s environment, cleaning happens infrequently, if at all. Odors and microbes proliferate, often deteriorating air quality and causing corrosion of equipment.
