Internal Corrosion

Lithium Bromide is highly corrosive in the presence of air. A small leak in the Absorption Chiller for a prolonged amount of time caused an internal corrosion and blocked the heat exchangers. This stopped the chiller from functioning at all. A LiBr analysis found that the copper content was over 5000 ppm.

It was a repair or replace dilemma for the customer. Our systematic diagnostic approach assured the customer to repair the chiller. Internal cleaning of the Absorption Chiller with Lithium based chemicals removed all the debris and restored it back into operation. VAMTEC assures customers with good maintenance practices and guarantees trouble free operation of the chiller.
