Choking of coolers due to abrasion / erosion of aluminum fins
Industry is facing problem of Compressor Coolers’ Aluminum fins erosion due to poor ambient air quality.
Description: Replacement of coolers for FS Elliot make compressors due to choking.
Problem: Choking of coolers due to abrasion / erosion of Aluminum fins.
Root cause:Bad Ambient Air quality as tested by external laboratory causing erosion of cooler fins material.
Impact: Frequent Tripping of Compressors at High IAT due to inefficient cooling resulting in major downtime of compressors i.e. production and power loss.
Industry needs support of scientists for analyzing impact of Ambient air on Aluminium fins / compressor parts and recommendation on long term solution to this problem. [BV]
