Heresite™ was the first company to develop and apply coatings specifically designed for the HVAC industry. Heresite protective coating was developed in 1954 and has been continuously improved with the latest technological advancements.
Along with a great heritage, Heresite protective coatings are renowned for its properties. It is a very thin coating allowing for great protection without compromising heat transfer. Additionally, the Heresite coating is flexible and can handle thermal shock from exposure to temperatures as vast as 400°F to 32°F.
The Heresite protective coating is an immersion applied coating. This method is excellent to prevent environmental deterioration and to reduce galvanic corrosion that occurs when aluminum fins come in contact with copper tubes.
Immersion/Dipped Protective Coating
Heresite coating protects from the outside in as well as the inside out!
Heresite protective coating is an excellent protection for coastal/marine exposure, swimming pools, waste-water treatment, food processing, oil and gas industry, paper and pulp processing, and many other environments and applications.
Rahn Industries provides a complete Heresite coating service. This includes disassembly, coating, and reassembling both commercial and residential equipment. In addition, Rahn Industries offers protective coatings that can preserve the look and structural integrity of cabinets, casing, and other HVAC equipment. Other services are available including air handler sound reduction, VFD installation, and UV light installation.
Benefits of Heresite Coating
An HVAC system working 24/7 will become subject to degradation and natural wear and tear. In many climates, the presence of small, grainy particles and contaminants trapped inside of an HVAC unit will negatively affect the indoor air quality of a building. Over time, these pollutants will cause corrosion and eat away at the coils themselves. Even high-quality metals can become weakened as a result of incessant exposure to harsh elements.
Adds Layer of Protection
Applying a coating to coils will provide a durable layer of protection in the face of corrosion and rust. This process prevents particles from building up, which eliminates the conditions for bacteria and corrosion to set in.
HVAC coil coatings are the first line of defense against the harmful effects of rough environments. And without this step, companies put themselves at serious financial risk because it can cost millions to replace an HVAC unit.
More Energy Efficient
Coated coils lead to greater energy efficiency as well because the system is more capable of heating or cooling the incoming air faster, thus leading to lower electricity consumption, and, in turn, a smaller carbon footprint. Using this approach is both a short- and long-term necessity.
Is It Time for HVAC Coil Coating?
In the event an HVAC system is no longer working at maximum capacity, there are a number of steps a company can take. For instance, the first move would be to identify the location of the problem and come up with a workable solution. However, not all businesses have the maintenance staff or engineers available to correct a technical issue, nor the financial resources to make such a large investment in potentially replacing the unit itself.
While it’s usually not necessary to overhaul the entire system, in certain cases, major changes must be made or else serious health risks can appear – not to mention, a business will be losing a lot of money toward wasted energy.
Many performance issues are correctable if the proper precautions are taken. Because an HVAC system can only function at a high level if it is regularly maintained, scheduled updates and cleanings should occur.
But even then, timely cleanings will only go so far. That’s where HVAC coil coating services come in. Coil coating can solve a host of problems before they even start, which is why companies are more frequently turning toward this technique as a preventative measure.
