Vacuum Furnace Heat Exchanger Cleaning Process

In the operation of vacuum furnaces, the quench gas heat exchanger fins can become clogged with various debris and dirt that is difficult to completely clean with standard pressure washing and other conventional methods. The clogged heat exchanger greatly impedes quench gas flow, resulting in reduced work cooling rates.

"Solar Atmospheres' special process involves 12-hour soak submerged in a suitable tub using a water base cleaning agent," said a company spokesperson. Recirculated forced water jets wash out the accumulated dirt from deep inside the heat exchanger. It is then pressure washed and blown dry with nitrogen gas. The heat exchanger is cleaned to an as new condition and then returned to the user. Vacuum Pump Services Corp. is an affiliate of Solar Atmospheres.
