Protected HVAC Components in Corrosive Environments
Tuesday, July 26, 2016
Unprotected HVAC heat exchangers, radiators, condensing unit coils and fans exposed to salt air, corrosives or acid rain will begin to oxidize within the first few months of operation. Corrosive attack typically starts at the copper tube-aluminum fin interface on the coil design and at the header extrusion connection causing thermal performance to decline swiftly. Performance decreases of up to 30% within 6 months are not unusual.
