Protect HVAC investments with coil coatings
Added on 27 January 2023
Many industries rely on HVAC systems to create comfortable and productive environments, and in addition to avoiding major repair expenses, it’s important to take proactive measures to keep them running properly to ensure safety and efficiency.
Protecting your HVAC equipment is paramount, and applying coil coatings will help combat corrosive agents in corrosion-prone environments. Here are a few ways to mitigate corrosion attacks.
E-Coat and Spray-Applied Factory Coatings
One of the best ways to protect your HVAC coils is by specifying OEM factory e-coated coils in your project upfront. E-coats, such as ElectroFin E-Coat from Modine Coatings, are an electro-deposition coating process that involves epoxy paint particles evenly suspended in deionized water. When it is electrically charged, the paint particles migrate to and bond with aluminum, copper, and other conductive metal surfaces that form the heat exchanger coils. The ElectroFin E-Coat Coating is applied in very specialized facilities where the coils are fully immersed into large process tanks. The ElectroFin E-coat process allows for 100% complete penetration and uniform deposition of the coating through the coil no matter how thin or thick the heat exchanger is or how densely it’s packed.
