ICP is announcing the transition from Blue Fin Coating to a new Golden Fin Coating on the indoor and outdoor coils. The systems are susceptible to hostile environments and over time contaminants can corrode the heat exchangers or particles can accumulate within the coils, this causes the heat exchangers performance to degrade leading to capacity loss, high head pressure and eventual compressor failure.
In order to minimize heat exchanger corrosion or dust accumulation, a coating can be used to protect the metal from harsh environments.
Benefits of the Golden Fin Coating Coils are:
- Improved Wettability (ability to repel the water on the coils)
- The Golden Fin has a smaller contact angle compared to Blue Fin coating, so the condensation on the coil flows easier, increasing the heat exchange efficiency.
- Improved Anti-Corrosion Capablities, avoiding the fins of the to rust as easily
- This unique anti-corrosive golden coating on the fins of the condenser coil helps withstanding the salty air, rain and other corrosive elements, increasing the life span of the coil by minimizing corrosion
The New Golden Fin Coils will be implemented on all the Ductless units produced after January 01, 2018 (serial number V011810001) Model Families: DLFPHA, DLFSHA, DLFEHA, DLFSCA, DLFLCA, DLFSDA, DLFLDA, DLFSFA, DLFLFA, DLCPRA, DLCSRA, DLCERAA, DLCERAH, DLCLRA, DLCMRA
Note: The ductless systems are not advised to be used in coastal applications without a proper coating on the cabinet and other components of the system. Different options of coating are available with third party companies.
ICP has a new ‘HVAC Basics’ training course available for your use. The HVAC Basics course offers content that illustrates the basic functions of heating and cooling – and how a comfortable environment is created. If you are new to the industry, in a new role or simply want a quick refresher on the basics of HVAC, take advantage of this new My Learning Center online course, HVAC Basics.
Through learning how the body regulates temperature, what attributes to us feeling comfortable, and how comfort is created with heating and cooling products, this course gives you the foundation of how HVAC systems work. This course is eligible for ELITE FACTORY HOURS and NATE CEU credits.
