Descaling ammonia condensers at turkey processing facility





A 1,200-ton ammonia condenser at a turkey processing facility experienced scaling on the exterior of the tubes. This scaling caused significant issues with proper heat transfer and in turn, not cooling the ammonia inside the tubes for proper refrigeration temperatures.


RYDLYME approach

  • 660 gallons of RYDLYME circulated for 8 hours via inline pumps.

RYDLYME results

  • Scaling throughout the tubes was dissovled restoring proper heat transfer and refrigeration temperatures, which is critical for this and other food processing facilities.
  • The client purchased additional totes of RYDLYME to clean three more ammonia condensers.
  • RYDLYME has also been incorporated into the preventative maintenance guidelines of these units.
