Plate and frame heat exchanger cleaned





A California biodiesel manufacturer wanted to test RYDLYME on one of its fouled plate and frame heat exchangers within the methanol recovery division of the plant. A byproduct of the biodiesel manufacturing process, methanol is extracted from spent cooking oil and grease, vaporized and recovered in plate and frame heat exchangers. Scaling inside the units were inhibiting proper heat exchange, making the entire recovery process inefficient. 


RYDLYME approach

  • 37 gallons of RYDLYME circulated for 3 hours via RYDLYME 10PPC pneumatic pump cart.
  • Unit DID NOT have to be disassembled.
  • Unit drained and flushed with fresh water.

RYDLYME results

  • After the unit was brought back online, the plate and frame heat exchanger was returned to normal operating parameters.
  • The customer stated, “Your product seems to have worked wonderfully on cleaning our exchanger. We have two more plate and frame exchangers that need attention, not to mention our entire cooling system!”
