    Trane Intellicrap

    I don't know about up north but here in the south it seems that the high humidity kills trane coils FAST this is not coating coming off it's corrosion and it sucks! It builds like scale and stops air flow. In time those coils will leak like a sprinkler.

    Inteelicrap

    Are you near the ocean? salt in the air will attack coils.They make prtective coatings to spray on coils to protect them from the elements. Of course they must be applied before the coil gets corrosion, When the coil is new.

    Looks like the crap I deal with everyday, which is located right next to the ocean. One guy has a chiller running about a 265 head with outside temps averaging 65 degrees.

    Yeah florida were either next to salt water or in a swamp lol those coils would have to be seriously cleaned up before something like an aluminized coating was applied also take into acct that if it's not 100 deg's on the roof it's raining cats and dogs high humidity we also have allot of ozone here it's like if one thing dosn't kill a unit here another will. If i'm not sweatin I better get to getten.

    I have 40 100% outside air addison units on a bld coils coated and all, the bld is right on the ocean, 4 years in and the coils are refrigerant sprinkler systems/ though someone may have tried to clean those coils with an acid and killed the coating but who knows for sure.

    i can honestly say that up here in pa ive never seen any corrode that fast. or many corrode at all even. we have an account with 22 rtus 20 to 30 ton trane that we just replaced the first one due to coil leakage. they are all from 1987 i believe so hopefully we will be replacing more shortly. hey its job security for you guys down there.

    That doesn't look like any kind of corrosion I've ever seen.

    So what is the ratio of lemon juice, vinegar, and water? I'd like to know for the next time I clean the coils on an intellipak. I'm also curious as to which Trane office gave you that information, or more specifically who...

    This was from trane I don't know who, my boss got the info I hurd laughed so hard i missed the rest of the info the tech that went to try it reports that crap didn't work.

    I get the reasoning, that mix will clean copper and I remember five or six years ago some cleaning paste stuff but who really knows. I'll let the "pros" at trane figure out what next lol. I thought it was a coating that was coming off.
