Mike Creamer: “Fri3Oil System has been an essential requirement to high levels of cleanliness on refrigeration systems”

“Business Edge Ltd has been using the Fri3Oil technology for several years now on applications where flushing of either complete systems or systems section has been an essential requirement to exceptionally high levels of cleanliness so as to remove all traces or original / corrupted oil, acid, particulates and so on. Indeed, the Fri3Oil machine has also enables us to remove substantial quantities of water from systems, including compressor crankcases, where the evaporator on waters chillers has frozen and fractured, thereby allowing the chilled water system to flood the refrigeration circuit.

The Fri3Oil machine recovers refrigerant in liquid form at around 3/4 kg per minute into recovery cylinders and this saves an enormous amount of time, especially on those refrigeration and A/C systems where a refrigerant charge of up to 500kg may be involved, this otherwise taking days to remove. Having applied the Fri3Oil machine to a project where it is either necessary to remove all traces of mineral oil in readiness for the injection of synthetic oil when replacing the original refrigerant with a new refrigerant type, or where a system is corrupted with acid, the process delivers clean recycled refrigerant, a thoroughly clean system with all the contaminants neatly stored in a vessel for easy disposal.

Where acid formation within a system has occurred, leading to compressor motor burnout, failure to remove all traces of acid and particulates from the failed compressor motor windings nearly always leads to subsequent failure of the motor within the new replacement compressor, Consequently, it is essential to use the Fri3Oil technology to ensure an absolutely clean system before executing repairs, especially where compressor replacement following a burn out is necessary“.

Cleaning of refrigeration systems in road transports in Madrid

Cleaning of refrigeration systems in road transports in Madrid

Last week RefriApp carried out a practical training course of our R&CA circuits and refrigerant gases cleaning system, Fri3Oil System, in a company from Madrid dedicated to repair refrigeration systems in road transports, Carrier and Thermo King brands mainly.

The refrigeration systems had their burned compressors which initially were to be replaced without cleaning the circuits. They worked in a corrosive environment and/or low lubricity which ended up deteriorated in a few months, beginning the cycle again.

In a standard cleaning, with only 2 or 3 flushing cycles using Fri3Oil System, you can completely clean the circuit, working it automatically and in less than 1 hour of time.

With the acquisition of our system and with the training course received, until now the company will make preventive cleanings to ensure that the system is clean and acid-free environment, avoiding forming the periodic replacement of damaged compressors. So far today, they could not perform cleaning circuit and consequently they could not guarantee their interventions to change refrigerant or compressors of their customers. Most of them, by this circumstance, caused refrigerant leaks in the system in order to avoid having to pay the fees for destruction of the refrigerant replaced.

By using Fri3OilSystem, they can now perform flushing services, recycle contaminated refrigerant or replace and re-use it, carry out the work to its customers with timely guarantee and besides all this, avoid release huge amounts of refrigerant to the atmosphere.
