New innovations from Rahn Industries have allowed HVAC systems to perform at their maximum potential for much longer. Applying a Rahn-Kote coating can greatly improve coil performance while defending against harsh contaminants that are common in commercial and industrial settings.
HVAC coils are the most vital aspect of the interior operation of the larger HVAC unit, which places a primary emphasis on the need for proper function and quality. Without efficient coils, energy use, indoor air quality and temperature regulation are all negatively impacted. When set in especially corrosive environments, coils can fail in a matter of months, according to CED Engineering.
Keeping coils insulated against the elements is vital to the output, productivity and sustainability of not only a building, but the business itself. With Rahn-Kote, coils can be protected to work like new.
Rahn-Kote contains Flouro teflon and titanium dioxide materials that help coils resist corrosion. Acids, salts and other types of particles frequently eat away at coils, however Rahn-Kote protects against all of these factors. Additionally, no other type of coating on the market provides UVC light protection, which is a staple of Rahn-Kote.
Restores older coils
Though many coils may be in poor condition, a resistant coating could be the solution to revitalize once-damaged parts. Fins can easily become detached from the tubes inside of an HVAC system. When this happens, the ability to transfer heat becomes affected. Rahn-Kote can seal the fin and the tube back together, thus making the coil nearly good as new. Rahn-Kote can be applied straight to the coils or even right over top previous coatings to provide a complete seal.
Stops bacteria and fungi
With high temperatures and humidity levels, poor air circulation can provide a perfect atmosphere for mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria and other microorganisms to thrive. This will create an excess amount of buildup within an HVAC system, which will inhibit the unit from functioning at a high level. These spores can also be harmful when ingested if they are forced into the room. Rahn-Kote contains quartemery ammonia biocide and Silver Ion that kills all bacteria and fungi, which improves air quality and protects HVAC coils.
Corrosion can not only eat through an entire surface, but can do more subtle damage that may be harder to spot. Coils can become susceptible to cratering, wherein small divots are created. Once the shape of the coils is altered, it can be hard for hot or cold water to come in contact with the entire surface inside the coil. This will slow down heat transfer and prohibit the necessary movement of air that regulates temperature. Rahn-Kote creates a clean, smooth surface for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
Repels water accumulation
Once moisture and condensation begin to gather in an HVAC unit, corrosion can happen fairly quickly. Water-based self-etching epoxy resin is used to coat coils and HVAC surfaces to prevent water from collecting. Rahn-Kote's super-hydrophobic contents decrease contact between water and fins, thus lowering static pressure and the amount of wattage necessary to power the unit. With Rahn-Kote, defrost times are reduced and water is unable to corrode coils.
By creating a durable, long-lasting sealant around the entire coil, corrosion is stopped before it starts. By coating an HVAC unit with Rahn-Kote, businesses can be sure they are receiving the most advanced form of resistant materials and services.
