Why IceCOLD® Was Created
In the 1980s, it was discovered that Oil Fouling, which occurs on the heat transfer surfaces of all HVAC systems, will cause a loss of efficiency that continues to accumulate during the life of the system. System performance is degraded by as much as 30%, due to the build-up of lubricants on internal surfaces. In older systems performance can be degraded by up to 40%!
Why IceCOLD® Is Unique
It is an innovative synthetic catalyst that was engineered specifically to remove oil fouling and improve the energy efficiency of HVAC and refrigeration systems. IceCOLD® is not made from petroleum base stocks, it is a pure synthetic. Synthetic lubricants contain no contaminants or molecules that don’t serve a designed purpose. They are made from molecules that are saturated with a higher percentage of carbon-hydrogen bonds, leaving fewer sites to which other, harmful molecules can attach to critical surfaces, or attack the molecular composition of compressor oil.
How IceCOLD® Works
It improves energy efficiency in HVAC and refrigeration systems, with three designed and balanced components:
- Removes Oil Fouling through breaking the surface tension of the oil that is creating an insulating barrier to heat exchange, within the evaporator coils
- Reacts with the refrigerant and causes it to evaporate at a lower temperature
- Independent testing, conducted by Intertek, using SAE protocols, demonstrated an improvement in compressor lubricity of 54%
IceCOLD®, benefits include reduced operating costs, faster temperature recovery times, enhanced quality of cooled air and extended equipment life. Typical payback is 12 cooling months. In most systems, IceCOLD® is installed once and lasts for the life of the equipment, delivering an exceptional return on investment.
IceCOLD®, has been successfully installed in tens of thousands of HVAC and refrigeration units throughout the world, with consistently positive results. Applications range from office buildings and hospitals to food processing and data centers – IceCOLD® can produce commercial and environmental benefits for every link in the Cold Chain, including refrigerated transport!
