Maintain Roll Performance - with Acid Flushing
Chill & heat-transfer rollers that are not performing optimally may be clogged a variety of compounds.
Over time, heating & cooling liquids tend to build-up, forming lime deposits, scale and calcium crusts, clogs of coagulated chemicals, and masses of rust. These deposits block the spiral baffles inside the roller, which decreases flowrates and causes the roller to lose thermal conductivity.
The end result: clogged rolls don’t get as hot or cold as they should – and your processes suffer.
But Menges can help.
We offer a unique acid flushing service that breaks-down and flushes-out these deposits of calcium, rust and congealed chemicals. Menges Roller uses specially-formulated chemicals to dissolve these solid masses and bits of particulate matter, then completely flush them from the roller.
Customers see immediate improvements in thermal transfer performance.
Improved heating/cooling performance also allows engineers to dial back flow rates, so pumps don’t have to
work so hard. You’ll save energy, but you’ll also increase the overall lifespan of connected equipment, the
result of pumping sludge-free liquids.

Rolls left to completely plug up can sometimes be saved, but this is an complex process, usually requiring removal of the outer shell, rebuilding of the interior components, and the fabrication & installation of a new
