ABOUT Pure Solution®
Pure Solution® is the product that will allow you to save money and energy, whilst reducing your carbon footprint. It is an award-winning synthetic catalyst used worldwide by companies like McDonald’s and Bimbo that is saving thousands of dollars in electricity costs. It is time for you to reduce your excessive spending on cooling services, by adding this single product to your cooling system which will reduce oil fouling, thereby making your heat exchange process more efficient from day one.
Pure Solution® saves you money
Including Pure Solution® in your energy efficiency strategy will allow your company to start saving money the same day it is introduced, because your cooling equipment will use less energy from the very moment you start it up and it will continue to do so during its normal operation. The most immediate result will be on your electricity bill, making it apparent that the equipment was previously wasting power.
As you decide to use Pure Solution®, the economy of your company will thank you, as well as the environment. This reduction in electricity usage will translate into a reduction in the dollars spent on it. As for the environment, every single saving in power consumption means saving precious natural resources like oil, natural gas and coal. As we lower our electricity consumption we can reduce the amount of mining and drilling for the materials that are basic to electricity production. Really simple measures can deliver big and important benefits for your own economy and for the environment at the same time.

01. Effects on Heat Transfer
Oil-fouling of the heat transfer surfaces of air conditioning and refrigeration systems will cause a loss of about 7% efficiency the first year, 5% the second year and 2% per year the following years.
According to ASHRAE, performance is degraded by as much as 30% due to the buildup of lubricants on internal surfaces.* Higher percentages have been observed in systems 20 years old or older.

02. Managing The Problem
Some of the techniques used by manufacturers to control migrating oil include the use of mechanical devices, such as separators, skimmers, drums, heat sources, suction risers, traps and pumps. However, according to ASHRAE’s Handbook*, these high-tech designs are not efficient enough to remove all of the unwanted oil. Although the mechanical solutions may reduce the problems of restricted or plugged capillary tubes or sticky expansion valves, they do not resolve the boundary layer oil fouling over time.

03. Pure Solution®
The heat transfer efficiency loss due to oil-fouling is restored to near new equipment levels by using Pure Solution®’s synthetic catalyst to break the Vander Waals (surface tension) forces between the oil globules and the walls of the refrigeration tubing. The absence of oil-fouling restores the loss of 20% to 30% heat transfer efficiency. An added benefit is that the capillary tubes, expansion valves and heat pump’s 4-way valves are also cleaned and will not oil-foul again.
The result is that Pure Solution® delivers an average financial payback period of under twelve cooling months and a Return-On-Investment of up to 500%.
At this stage, the coils are occupied by the fouling oil at the same time as the refrigerant, slowing down the latter and preventing it from doing its job properly. In a fairly new system, the performance may be degraded by 30% due to this problem. However, it gets worse; because the oil will continue accumulating and the process performance can be degraded by up to 40%. To prevent this from happening, Pure Solution® should be added to the system. Pure Solution® is a synthetic catalyst made out of three components: a first catalyst that removes the oil fouling, a second catalyst that reacts with the refrigerant and causes it to evaporate at a lower temperature and a lubricity agent that helps the refrigerant’s circulation. Pure Solution® is not made from petroleum-based stock, but it contains molecules having a high percentage of carbon-hydrogen bonds. These are ‘intelligent’ molecules that work for a specific purpose, in this case to enhance the refrigerant’s circulation and, thus, improve the system’s performance and reduce its energy consumption.
