According to GO Distribution , commercial and industrial processes are dependent on efficient heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R) systems. Leaks of refrigerants from chilling systems, processing lines and perishable product handling facilities can be costly for owners. Sneaky leaks, tiny holes in evaporators, condensers and pipelines are found in the HVAC/R systems that are vital to commercial and industrial plants.
GO Distribution observe that ineffective HVAC/R systems can spoil refrigerated goods or processes in factories and shops, cause discomfort to workers and disrupt industrial processes. Left unchecked, these holes can leak refrigerants, push up energy bills and pollute the environment. The micro leaks are hard to find when the refrigerant pipelines are accessible and are not possible when pipelines are buried in a building’s structure, under cement or in walls and ceilings. Super Seal sealant is formulated to repair leaks up to 300 microns in evaporators, condensers and pipelines.
The Super Seal sealant is injected to circulate with the refrigerant and oil that is crucial for HVAC/R systems. At the point where the refrigerant leaks through the tiny punctures in the system, it begins to lower the ambient air temperature down to the dew point, when micro droplets of moisture are deposited around the leak area. The escaping refrigerant containing the Super Seal sealant reacts with this moisture to form a permanent low tensile crystalline structure, which seals the hole from the inside out.
The Super Seal sealant is suitable for heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R) specialists operating in Australia’s tropical north. Rob Middleton, a Cairns based technician, used the Super Seal sealant in two recent applications that involved a refrigerator and an air conditioning unit that were having persistent leaks. The refrigerator unit was in the premises where food was handled and the HVAC unit was in a commercial building area.
Middleton notes that effective results were achieved on the refrigerator. The Super Seal sealant was suitable for micro leaks in systems that cannot be found or accessed easily.
Middleton shares some of the cases where super seal sealants helped their customers to save time and money. One case involved a leaking chiller that forced the HVAC/R engineer of a car manufacturing plant to decide between a costly production shutdown and using the Super Seal sealant to eliminate the leak. Shutting down the chiller system, which cooled 39,366L of honing oil used in the engine block cutting process, would be expensive and disrupt production. The Super Seal sealant eliminated the leak.
Another case involved refrigerant lines running 30m under a concrete deck located at a supermarket franchise store. These lines replaced sub-surface components but the problem was solved when the service technician injected two 85g (3-ounce) cans of the Super Seal sealant into the refrigerant lines at the supermarket. Soon after injection, the system retained optimum pressures.
Middleton has also used the Super Seal sealant on a supermarket walk-in cooler, a restaurant ice machine with an evaporator plate and residential HVAC central air conditioning systems.
The Super Seal sealant is suitable for air conditioning and refrigeration applications and is compatible with all oils and refrigerants. The Super Seal sealant does not interfere with compressor valves, capillary tubes or TX valves and remains stable within the refrigerant stream.
The Super Seal sealant is available in three varieties for systems from:
Super Seal ACR - 0.7kW - 5.3kW (1/10hp - 7hp)
Super Seal HVACR - 5.3kW - 17.6kW (7hp - 23hp)
Super Seal Commercial - 17.6kW (23hp)
Super Seal Pro is suitable for automotive and mobile air conditioning applications.
