Fan Coil Unit Cleaning

Fan coil units - web

Are your fan coil units overdue for a clean? 

Did you know that after 5 years, a non-cleaned unit can use up to 50% more electricity? Dirty and contaminated coils are a significant cost to an operator.

Over time, evaporator coils deteriorate dramatically in performance and hygiene. Inside the units, coil surfaces become contaminated through the build-up of dirt, mould and bacteria.

Coolclean provides specialist cleaning of fan coil units for the food, health and hospitality industry. Our technicians are HACCP certified to work in food related areas.

Professional cleaning brings significant benefits – reducing electricity costs, enhancing food hygiene by controlling the spread of bacteria and mould throughout the room, and reducing unsightly staining of walls.

Ensure the cleanest, most efficient operation of you cooling assets. We clean all types of coil-based HVAC equipment, including fan coil units, evaporators, condensers, air handling units, production line equipment, split systems, Thermfresh and Humicool units.

Benefits

Included in our service

Coolclean uses an advanced residual microbial biocide to safely clean and protect units from bacteria and mould. Much more than just the superficial cleaning of external surfaces, our technicians use custom equipment to penetrate the inner coils, hygienically cleaning without causing equipment damage. Our service includes:

A fully traceable service for audit purposes

To make your next audit straightforward, we provide a comprehensive report for each cooling unit and each room, together with photos and a Coolclean service sticker.

 

Coolclean - Without coil cleaning, webElectricity costs significantly reduced

After 5 years, a non-cleaned unit can use up to 50% more electricity. The efficiency of cooling units is affected by a number of factors – the age of the unit, system maintenance and cleanliness can increase energy consumption. In time, the surfaces of coils become dirty as the air moving over the coils can contain dust, dirt, pollen, bacteria, mould, pollen and other contaminants.

Mould and bacteria control

Mould and bacteria thrive in a moist environment. During the cleaning process, we remove mould, bacteria and contaminants from cooling equipment and surfaces. Following treatment, the unit is protected from mould and bacteria for a minimum of 12 months.

Improved reliability

The correct cleaning of heat transfer surfaces reduces breakdowns. The majority of breakdowns are due to the system not being cleaned properly. Often the unit is not broken, it is simply dirty.

In-house qualified technicians

Our own technicians carry specialist equipment to perform work efficiently, to minimise impact on your operation. The cleaning process includes the application of an anti-microbial biocide, which is endorsed by HACCP and CSIRO to effectively remove contaminants. Our technicians are fully trained and HACCP qualified to safely restore unit efficiency in food related areas.

Avoiding the use of cleaning chemicals in food related areas makes perfect sense. As part of our standard clean, the food-safe biocide is environmentally friendly, pH neutral, non-corrosive and fully biodegradable.

We clean and sanitise all brands including Kirby, Eco, LU-VE, Frigel, Gunter, Muller, Actrol, Buffalo Trident, Cabero, Bitzer, Tecumseh, Copeland and Embraco. We also clean walls, ceilings and food related equipment on request.

FOOD SAFETY COMES FIRST

Optimised cooling performance

Food products must be stored at the correct temperature in order to ensure food safety. By cleaning coils and surfaces (together with 12 months’ added protection), the Coolclean service restores units to ‘as new’ efficiency, where performance improvements see the correct airflow and temperature maintained.

Performance validated by HACCP and CSIRO, we use a food-safe anti-microbial biocide to break down and digest contaminants, protecting units from mould and bacteria re-growth for 12 months.

Case Study: Reputable Food Manufacturer, Melbourne

“We have noticed a large reduction in the time it takes for the rooms to bring produce down to temperature, and there is much more airflow around the room.” – Joe Cremona, Cremona Bros

Improved food safety and product shelf life

Mould and bacteria thrive in a moist environment. This builds up naturally on cooling units, walls and ceilings.

Cooling units act as prime incubators to spread mould and bacteria throughout a cool room. While some moulds are desirable in foods such as blue cheese, other moulds and bacteria can produce contaminants that degrade food, cause illness and reduce shelf life.

It is well known that contamination is a leading cause of food damage. Dirty fan coil units and evaporators act as the primary source of contamination in cool rooms. When cooling units are overdue to be cleaned, coils are typically chocked with dirt and bacteria. As a result, the fan spreads contaminants throughout the room and stains the ceiling. In order to break the cycle, cleaning and disinfection of cooling units is required.

Biological hazards include:

  • Bacteria
  • Moulds
  • Yeasts

These are found everywhere

  • Some are good, and some are bad – pathogens 
  • They all need certain conditions to grow, when conditions are right they multiply very quickly
  • They travel

Pathogenic Bacteria

  • Is harmful to humans – most are killed at pasteurising temperature (72ºC for 15 seconds)

Pathogens that can be found in food products are:

  • Salmonella typhi (Salmonella)
  • Cronobacter sakazakii (CB)
  • Escherichia coli (Coli)
  • Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria)
  • Clostridium (SRC or Botulism)

Coolclean provides 12 months’ protection from mould and bacteria, to assist in keeping cool rooms hygienically clean and suitable for food storage.
