Maintenance system drives-down industrial air-con costs

With temperatures set to rise higher than normal across much of Australia as we enter the warmer months, HVAC/R systems (heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration systems) will potentially carry greater loads than previously, according to GO Distribution.

Any weaknesses in the system — including micro-leaks that can sap energy while impacting on buildings’ carbon footprints — will be more costly than ever, says HVAC/R specialist Gary Oborne of GO Distribution.

GO Distribution offers one solution to the problem in the form of Super Seal Total, a preventative maintenance system that can reportedly assist in reducing buildings’ carbon footprints and drive down energy costs.

Super Seal Total can also help avoid expensive overhauls or replacement of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems (HVAC/R) as diverse as those used in the food, beverage, hospitality and primary processing industries (including meat, fruit and vegetables) through to large-scale shops, shopping centres, offices, factories and infrastructure and processing plants, the company claims.

An innovation from the international Cliplight Manufacturing Company, Super Seal Total combines three products that help prevent the formation of refrigerant leaks that drain energy and pollute the environment as well as repairing existing micro leaks and detecting larger leaks at the same time.

These are: Cliplight’s new DRY R formulation developed to rid the issue of moisture acid; the Super Seal sealant used throughout Australasia and internationally to permanently repair leaks up to 300 microns in evaporators, condensers and pipelines; and an ultra-violet tracer dye that marks any leaks that are too large for Super Seal to seal, making them simple to detect with standard UV fluorescing lights.

“The combination of these three products delivers a four-in-one benefit of eliminating moisture, preventing the formation of acid, sealing micro leaks and helping find larger leaks,” says GO Distribution managing director Gary Oborne.

“Such benefits will be even more attractive than usual this year, with the Bureau of Meteorology National Outlook for temperatures through to mid-spring suggesting warmer than normal days for Southern Australian while warmer nights are favoured for much of the continent”.
