Hydroball Technics (SEA) has successfully developed a Non-Powered Automatic Tube Cleaning System for heat exchangers and condensers with R&D ingenuity and sound engineering design that covers every potential reduction in energy consumption. Innovation to achieve “state-of-the-art design” was given full management support. The revolutionary Hydroball System eliminates equipment downtime and also optimizes energy consumption of equipment by automatically keeping the heat exchanger tubes perpetually free from fouling and scaling deposits. Our test results show that all chillers in central air-con systems equipped with Hydroball System have trouble free operation with the technical support from local distributors.

Hydroball System is the perfect cost-effective solution that eliminates equipment downtime and optimizes energy utilization of water-cooled heat exchangers (including chillers) by automatically keeping heat exchanger tubes perpetually free from effects of scaling and particulate fouling. This ensures optimal heat exchange efficiency, contributing to prevention of unnecessary energy loss and low total-cost-of-use.

Hydroball System eliminates equipment downtime for manual cleaning of chiller condenser by automatically keeping the condenser tubes free from effects of scaling and particulate fouling. This prevents energy wastage caused by poorer heat exchange in the condenser and the need for chiller compressor (heat pump) to work harder to deliver the same amount of cooling.

Benefits

  • Non-powered – Does not requires pump or diverter to activate each cleaning cycle.
  • No Mixing of Hot and Cold Water within Condenser – Warm water leaving condenser does not re-enter the condenser.
  • No Water Wastage – No discharge of water after each cleaning cycle.
  • Totally Effective Against Particulate Fouling – Particulate fouling can be very rapid in a dusty environment.
  • Energy Saving – Particulate Scaling & fouling if not mitigated, can increase the chiller energy consumption by more than 20%. Hydroball system prevents scaling and fouling at all times.
  • Reliable Performance – Hydroball Technics Provides a reliable maintenance programme to ensure no uptrend in Condenser Approach Temperature readings.
  • Prolonged Lifespan of Condenser Tubes
