Energy Generation

Issues with the constant functioning of your air-cooled condenser during the warm months?

Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH also uses the JetMaster from mycon GmbH in the field of power generation. JetMaster is environmentally friendly and saves resources. The water consumption is extremely low with 0.20 – 1.00l clear water per minute of use. JetMaster works without the addition of chemicals. Thus, the amount of waste water is extremely reduced compared to other aqueous cleaning methods and is only polluted by the mostly harmless soiling of the surfaces in this area. During the examination of the air-cooled condenser in the plant of a customer surprising realizations resulted: The performance of the tested air-cooled condenser dropped between 2 cleanings every 5 months to up to 57% of the rated power due to contamination. This leads to a drop in energy production of up to 25%. If, on the other hand, the air-cooled condenser is cleaned on demand, its output does not fall below 95%, which means that the slumps in production can largely be avoided.

Cleaning of cooling towers

The pipes in the cooling tower were temporarily supplied with lime-containing water. As a result, a hard limestone armour had developed around the pipes.

The JetMaster combination system successfully cleaned the outer pipe surfaces.

The zinc coating – which had been destroyed by chemical cleaning – is not attacked by JetMaster.

The entire JetMaster combination system (incl. JetPower) is used for cleaning surfaces with limescale residues. More information about the JetMaster combination system can be found on our JetMaster product page.
