Air Compressors

A Reciprocating Compressor is normally a heavy-duty, continuous service compressor. Cylinder construction usually incorporates a water jacketed cylinder and heads to remove some of the heat of compression and also to improve the lubrication and reduce carbonization of valve parts. Water jacketing around valve and packing is essential, since these are points of localized heat. As time goes on, you will have LIME, SCALE and RUST accumulation inside the water jackets, which in time will overheat the air compressor. This will also occur in the inter cooler and after cooler. With EZ-Clean you can clean these vital parts without disassembling the cylinders, after cooler and intercooler. Just simply remove the water in/out connection from each part and circulate EZ-Clean for the recommended amount of time. After the circulation, flush with water and connect the water in/out connections back to the proper location. If your compressor is running off a closed loop water system or a cooling tower, you may want to pour the EZ-Clean into one of theses systems. This will eliminate the down time in your plant operation verses disconnecting your in/out connections from each vital part. Before you proceed with these operations, contact your distributor so they may assist you. For the proper amount of EZ-Clean and circulation times, please refer to the following chart:

Example: if a compressor is 50 HP and the low pressure cylinder is to be cleaned, it would take 10 gallons of EZ-Clean and approximately 2 hours to clean it. To clean the high pressure cylinder, you would need an additional 8 gallons of EZ-Clean. It would then take 18 gallons of EZ-Clean and approximately 2 hours to clean the high and low pressure cylinders.
