Our Cooling Systems Energy Efficiency (CSEE) Solution, also called PROATEQ,...

Our Cooling Systems Energy Efficiency (CSEE) Solution, also called PROATEQ,
is a heat transfer enhancement specifically engineered to decrease kWh
consumption while increasing energy efficiency capacity. Your company's
existing cooling and refrigerant systems would actually achieve reduced
operational cost in addition to the following benefits:

1) Lowers kWh consumption in HVAC/R Systems by +10%
2) Extends the productive life of HVAC/R Systems in increasing capacity
to transfer heat by +15%
3) Extending the life of cooling equipment

Restoration of Energy Efficiency In Cooling Systems Restoration of Energy Efficiency In Cooling Systems Presentation Transcript

  • C o o l i n g S y s t e m s E n e r g y E f f i c i e n c y Heat Transfer Enhancement
  • Helps reduce Greenhouse Gases Lowers Electricity Consumption Decreases Energy Operational Costs
    • What’s The Problem Space?
    •  Compressor oil migration, which is unavoidable, impedes heat transfer capabilities that reduce energy efficiency
    •  Loss of energy efficiency of 7-8% the 1 st year, 4-6% the 2 nd year, and 2-4% each following year according to ASHRAE -1
    •  This ‘silent’ problem degrades every year requiring more kWh ($$$) to overcome inefficiency
    • What’s the REAL Problem ?
    •  The real problem is the hard dollars it cost your company to do nothing or continue in a maintenance program incapable of adequately addressing this ‘silent’ problem of inefficiency.
    •  This problem is exacerbated by HVAC service industry that either aren’t aware of the magnitude of this problem, are misled by OEM to marginalize it, or who simply refuse to act in the presence of even the slightest risk.
  • The problem: loss of energy efficiency
    Cooling system efficiency over time Time  Efficiency  Untreated degradation of system efficiency 100%
    • Systems degrade due to buildup of contaminates on internal metallic surfaces
    •  This buildup causes:
      •  Increased kWh at startup  Heat exchange inefficiency
      •  Higher air supply temperature  Increased operating time
      •  Wasted energy usage  Higher electric bills
      •  Increased operating pressure  Shorter equipment life
    Why do systems lose efficiency? As defined by ASHRAE -3
    • 1, 2 “A Survey of Refrigerant Heat Transfer and Pressure Drop Emphasizing Oil Effects and In- Tube Augmentation;” ASHRAE Winter Symposium of 1987; Schlager, Plate, and Bergles.
    • 3 1998 ASHRAE Handbook, Refrigeration, Chapters 2.9 and 6.7

  • Before or if left untreated Over time, an oil layer forms on the heat exchanger wall creating an insulating layer that impedes heat transfer Surface condition Copper Tubing Wall Copper Tubing Wall Copper Tubing Wall Refrigerant Refrigerant Refrigerant Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Flow Heat Transfer Oil film buildup inhibits flow and can reduce the amount of refrigerant available The efficiency of heat transfer is reduced by the oil layer causing your unit to operate longer to achieve the desired temp
    •  The only product on the market originally formulated and patented solely to be a Polarized Refrigerant Oil Additive (PROA), which enhances the heat transfer capabilities of evaporator and condenser coils in air conditioning, heat pump, and refrigeration systems.
    •  It is a non-chlorinated, thermal conductive refrigerant oil additive that saves energy and reduces equipment wear by increasing the efficiency of heat exchange systems.
    Introducing The Solution: Cooling Systems Energy Efficiency
    •  PROATEQ contains highly polarized molecules that work synergistically with compressor oil to improve the performance of air conditioning and refrigeration systems by increasing the heat transfer capability.
    •  The highly polarized charge of the PROATEQ molecules attract the refrigerant to the surfaces of the heat exchangers, resulting in accelerated heat transfer
    The Solution: Cooling Systems Energy Efficiency
  • The solution: CSEE Solution PROATEQ Time  Efficiency  Energy saving & extended system life Untreated degradation PROATEQ treatment 100% Cooling system efficiency over time
    •  PROATEQ is a refrigerant oil additive that saves energy and equipment by increasing the efficiency of heat exchange systems and reducing equipment wear.
    •  Resolves the problem of compressor oil escaping out into the system. Using low viscosity non-particulate base oil for faster migration of polarized molecules, PROATEQ electro-statically bonds to the interior surfaces of the evaporator and condenser coils.
    What is PROATEQ?
  • PROATEQ dislodges the insulating oil film & bonds electromagnetically to the surface Surface condition Flow Heat Transfer PROATEQ polarized molecule prevents oil film buildup and improves lubricity by over 75-85% By returning the surface to a like new condition, heat is more easily transferred and run times are reduced Refrigerant Refrigerant Refrigerant Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil PROATEQ Molecule PROATEQ Molecule PROATEQ Molecule Copper Tubing Wall Copper Tubing Wall Copper Tubing Wall After treatment with the CSEE Solution - PROATEQ
    • The University of Tennessee Thermal Science Research Center (TSRC) conducted performance tests on PROATEQ in a heat pump and an A/C unit – an increase of 14.2% proven
    • Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) field testing showed a 25% decrease in kWh consumption and an 11% decrease in KW demand – Dr. John Willingham, Energy services supervisor
    • Southwest Research Institute conducted FALEX (lubricity/bearing) Test: increase from 610 lbs. base line to 1,581 lbs. with the addition PROATEQ
    Testing and Certifications
    •  Test concluded that PROATEQ was responsible for a 73% to 95% increase in heat transfer.
    •  At a minimum PROATEQ delivers a 75% to 85% increase in lubricity to refrigeration oils.
    •  PROATEQ forms a thin monolayer on metallic surfaces; the net effect of which is to displace organic deposits while thermally conducting an increase in heat transfer.
    •  PROATEQ cleans systems that have suffered burnout.
    National Institute of Standards and Technology
    • Two key ways that we mitigate risks to our clients:
    •  $1,000,000 Liability Policy from Georgetown Utilities’ manufacturer – Ensateq and $500,000 Professional Liability Policy from Georgetown Utilities
    •  Georgetown Utilities guarantees to increase HVAC/R System capacity by a minimum of 10%; if unable to do so, will refund all money associated with that HVAC/R System
    Risk Mitigation
    •  These two SLAs shield plausible risks to prospective clients. Georgetown Utilities has essentially isolated the client from any plausible risk.
    •  Our CSEE Solution has been marketed nation-wide for ten years with not one damage claim filed against Georgetown Utilities or our manufacturer – ENSATEQ.
    •  PROATEQ is insured by the Colony Insurance Company for $1 million per cooling system treated
    Risk Mitigation
    • By law, our CSEE Solution should NOT effect product warranty or service level agreement based on results from NIST Test and the Magnusson-Moss Consumer Product Warranty Act of 1992
    • Investment cost for our CSEE Solution is partially based on total HVAC ton treated and a number of other implementation factors.
    •  Typical payback period is 12 operating months or less.
    Client Risks & Investment Cost
    • Installed by experienced, licensed contractors familiar with your cooling systems
    • PROATEQ is introduced through existing connections on your current unit
