Air Compressor Inter-cooler

Restoring a worn air compressor to an efficiency level that is as near to new as possible, NHE methodology will further eliminate corrosion and fouling problems inherent in the original equipment.

Plugged tubes and water jackets will cause compressors to run hot, reducing efficiency and stopping plants from running at full capacity. Participate fouling on the fin side not only reduces heat transfer but contaminates the plant air and potentially causes serious damage to the air compressor itself. Both of these issues exacerbate the erosion of the fins and further reduces efficiency.

Air Compressors are a vital component in the operation of any plant; if they are down – so is the plant. Properly maintaining air compressor inter and after-coolers is essential for efficient, worry-free operation.
