The O3 Philosophy
Using the latest chemical technology, O3 has developed a range of coil and refrigeration cleaners, which are powerful, and yet non-corrosive. No matter how often they are used, they will never attack coils or fins, whether they are made from aluminium or copper. Not only are they non-corrosive, but they also leave a protective film to help extend the life of the units on which they are applied. It is a given that they are concentrates, which can be diluted up to 15 times.
We want our customers to be able to use them 24/7, so they are odourless too. They are also extremely cost-effective. And they qualify to be at the forefront of the GOING GREEN campaign.
How effective? We are not interested in being told a coil is clean. We
want to know how clean? The best way to assess the results of a coil clean,
is to measure the improvement in air flow.Therefore it is imperative that
we teach technicians how to use an anemometer.
We insist on doing readings before and after each clean. We do comparative checks after each clean to see whether the programme is maintaining the required levels.
The O3 Programme will transpose the "before" and "after" figures onto an image of a coil so that the technician, and the contractor can see where there may be a problem which may need attention
Nothing is left to chance in the drive to reduce energy and water consumption.
How Much? We believe it is essential that a contractor should know in advance what the cost of chemicals will be for a contract before any work is started. Our new O3 Programmewill do this.
It even details the cost of the different types of chemicals needed for the job. But more than this. WE will start by identifying the building in which the work is being done.
We ask the contractor to give us the where the building is situated (town and street address).
We can then:
Overall tenant satisfaction with the building environment has been improved
as evidenced by the property manager's communications and positive feedback.
Conclusion - Good maintenance practices, including coil cleaning, can significantly improve energy efficiency (by as much as 10% to 15% as in this case).
The next step is to list the AHUs, mid-walls, cassettes, consols, under-ceiling units, and condensors in the building. It is preferable to identify where they are situated in the building – on what floor, and where on that floor the unit is situated. This will make it easier for all when "before" and "after" air flow readings are done. If there is a problem we can isolate the unit, and determine what outside elements are influencing it.
We need the AHU measurements (length and height), as well as the measurements for all the other units. From these we can work out the volume of the AHU in m². This helps us to determine the quantity of O3 chemical needed to clean the unit.
We need to know whether the AHUs are servicing a general area in the building, or whether they are servicing restaurants, fast food outlets, or any cooking areas. This will determine which of the two O3 chemicals we will use to clean the AHUs.
We use specially developed chemicals to clean mid-walls, cassettes, consols, under-ceiling units, and condensors. O3 SmartAir and O3 SmartFinish will do the job quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively - and they don’t need water.
