• Helps maintain air cooler efficiency to maximum levels
• No harmful effect to engines
• Reduces maintenance costs and saves time
AIR COOLER CLEANER is a very effective mixture of solvents, surfactants, strong emulsifiers and penetrating agents formulated to penetrate and remove mineral oils, grease and other deposits from air coolers and turbochargers in marine engines .
AIR COOLER CLEANER is used in air coolers, turbochargers, and the scavenging system of marine engines, either when running or idle. The product is also used to remove carbonaceous residue from machinery parts.
USE AND DOSING
A. In-service cleaning (Injection method)
Using a permanently installed or portable injection apparatus spray a solution of AIR COOLER CLEANER in water in the air trucking system, so that the solution jet flows in the opposite direction to the turbocharger forced air stream. Continue injection for 10-15 minutes and allow 15 minutes for the product to act. When injection is complete, inject an equal amount of water to rinse. For turbocharger air side and air cooler cleaning, use a 30-50% solution of AIR COOLER CLEANER in resh water depending on the amount of deposition. When cleaning turbocharger exhaust side, reduce the content of AIR COOLER CLEANER down to 10%.
Note: The cleaning frequency largely depends on the amount of air cooler fouling. At the early stages, it is recommended to repeat the cleaning procedure every 24 hours and slowly reduce the frequency of application. The dosage rate, however, should remain constant regardless of the application frequency.
B. Out-of-service cleaning (Hand spray method)
The engine is stopped and the air cooler drain valves are opened. Using a pressure hand spray, AIR COOLER CLEANER is applied undiluted to the cooler coils. The product is allowed to penetrate for a minimum of one (1) hour and then, using a high pressure water jet, all loosened deposits are being removed. The process is repeated if necessary and the system is thoroughly rinsed prior to closing the drain valves.
C. Soaking method
This method is used to clean carbonaceous daeposits from machinery parts. Soak parts in a bath of undiluted AIR COOLER CLEANER for as long as necessary (min. of 2 hours) so that deposits are loosened and can easily be removed with a high pressure water jet and wire brush. Rinse well with fresh water.
