Carbon Remover – combined air cooler cleaner
Aquamarine Carbon Remover combined Air Cooler Cleaner is a carbonaceous residue cleaner and for in service cleaning of air handling systems for turbo charged diesel engines.
• Non-corrosive, safe on all light metals, including aluminium
• Quickly dissolves deposits containing carbon, resins or varnishes
• Simple and economical to use by soaking or circulation method
• Eliminates need for hard scraping
• Can be recycled for future use
• Non flammable
• Low toxicity
• Low evaporation rate
• No phenols or chlorinated compounds Application
• Removal of carbon type deposits from burner tips, fuel injectors and all components fouled by carbon, resin or varnishes
• Cleaning oil side of fuel and lube-oil heaters, oil coolers etc
• Removal of carbon based deposits from fuel and lube oil filters
• Direct engine parts such as pistons, piston rings, valve spring, valve cages
Soak method: The items to be cleaned are dipped into the solvent; a wire basket can be used for small components. For removal of light deposits or oil, a dilution of up to 1:2 in fresh water may be used. Light deposits will be removed in 1 hour, whereas heavily oxidised deposits may need overnight soaking. After the components have been removed from the soaking bath, remaining solvent is easily removed with water.
Due to a very low evaporation rate, no precautions are necessary to prevent loss of liquid, but adequate ventilation is recommended.
Circulation: Where in-situ cleaning is required, the chemical can be used neat and circulated through the unit in question. Time required for this process will again depend on extent of fouling and may take up to 20 hours.
1. Before circulation with the cleaner blow compressed air or steam through the system to begin with.
2. to remove as much as possible of the residual oil.
3. Connect up the end of the oil system to a pump, fill the system with the cleaner and circulate.
4. Continue circulating through the system for 4 to 24 hours. Cleaning process will depend on the type of deposits involved.
5. Heating the cleaner will enhance the effectiveness, but temperature should not exceed 60°C.
6. When cleaning is completed, drain out the cleaning solution and flush the system with a petroleum solvent such as gas oil or kerosene.
