Since the two Integro™ 2 v3 systems were installed there has been a significant reduction in the scale buildup inside the condensers/heat exchanger tubes with no new scale formation. The condensers have been operating at a normal operating pressure and have not had to be taken down due to the head pressure increasing, as was the case in the past. None of the condensers have needed to be ‘rodded out’ since installation of the technology.
Additionally, the seven ice machines have all been operating efficiently with no scale build up inside the ice tubes. The machines have not been running ‘hot’ so ice production time has been consistent and the compressors are not having to work as hard.
Installation of the Integro™ technology has improved operating efficiency, reduced down time, decreased scheduled maintenance and improved production output.
What the Owners had to say?
“Head pressure on the condensers is down. It has stayed consistent. Never got near having to take it down. So going on since 9/20/20 and no need to rod any out in 2020 ,2021 or2022. Something is working if the head pressure is not going sky high, because the water I’ve got [is very hard and] has a good bit of scale in it. Since the compressors are not running as hard, I am making more ice on the machines. If the head pressure goes up, it can cut my production 10% to 20% easy because it will slow you down. Normally, I was cleaning my ice machines twice a year. I haven’t done it at all since installing the Integro systems. I haven’t even cleaned them out due to scale in over a year. Additionally, I haven’t lost a pump since installing the Integro whereas before the descaler would start killing the o-rings.
