HVAC performance is critical to everyday business operations. From temperature control to pollutant removal, HVAC systems serve various roles and require optimal settings to create the necessary environment for certain industries and products.
For instance, data centers can only operate within specific temperature ranges and must have an appropriate level of ventilation present to keep machinery cool and electrical systems from failing. Further, wastewater treatment facilities, chemical plants and oil refineries all require similar modules to function at high capacities.
On a more minute level, the air itself must be free of contaminants that may have found their way into an enclosed area. Outdoor pollution, smoke, spores and other biological particles can easily affect particular processes within a company if they're not removed quickly enough, especially when it concerns sensitive materials.
This environment is only achievable through the use of maximum-efficiency HVAC equipment. However, the reason some businesses have high energy costs and limited HVAC performance is because these systems tend to break down naturally over time. When metals come in contact with water and other harsh elements, corrosion is bound to set in. It's up to building managers to have the wherewithal to notice warning signs before they get out of hand or else owners could have a million dollar renovation project on their hands. Coming up with the necessary funds to overhaul a failing HVAC system isn't always easy, but allowing your unit to continually operate below standard can damage both personal health and daily operations of a business.
The best way to remedy this and similar situations is to take a proactive stance on preventing corrosion before it starts. This is only manageable if a company has the right tools and services that are capable of resisting the elements for a long period of time.
At Rahn Industries, a variety of HVAC coating services are available that can aid both the interior and exterior of units, thus increasing lifespans and improving performance.
If the outside of your HVAC system isn't protected, then it can lead to rust that will eat away at the metal until a hole is present. This problem will worsen because rain will flow and damage the interior of the unit, which can cause a full malfunction.
It's important to apply an architectural coating to all parts of the HVAC system that are exposed to the outdoors as well as structures that may not serve a specific HVAC purpose. Pipes, metals, walls, floors and other parts of a building can be covered with an architectural coating because these items also need to be protected from corrosion and decay.
Rahn has several different offerings that can be applied to cabinets as well. With PPG, Ameron PSX 700 and other different compounds, materials can become resistant to below-standard conditions. These products are designed to limit water collection and reduce the effects of moisture and acid.
Once the exterior of a unit is refurbished, it's best to take a hard look at the HVAC coils themselves because they can become damaged in a matter of weeks without intervention. HVAC coil coating helps coils resist cratering and full breaks by minimizing the effects of corrosion.
Rahn-Kote coating is superhydrophobic and can withstand high temperature and pressure levels while preventing the formation of mold, bacteria and other contaminants. By allowing coils to perform more efficiently, airflow and air quality are better regulated.
Rahn also offers dip & bake coatings which rely on fleuro Teflon to shield coils. Coils are dipped in an epoxy resin, then baked to a high temperature to provide a complete seal so that leaks don't occur in the future.
Selecting the coating that works for your company is key to enhancing output and reducing energy waste. These cost-saving measures will do wonders to advance sustainability goals while also keeping your HVAC system functioning at a high level.
Whether you're trying to revamp a failing HVAC system or are looking to prevent problems before they start, Rahn can save you money and increase the longevity of your unit.
Rahn Industries has a full lineup of spray and immersion (dip)/ Bake protective coatings to meet your needs.
