The heat rodis an important equipment in boilers used in industry and daily life. However, boiler cooling is easily damaged which makes the boiler inoperable. So what are the causes of boiler heat exchanger damage? Let’s find out with KS – Boiler through the article below.
What is the heat rod?
The heat rod is a U-shaped part that converts electrical energy into heat energy. The heat rod is usually located near the bottom of the boiler because it provides heat to make the water hot and boiling. The current boiler heat rod is made of stainless steel and depending on the type of boiler with different sizes and power sources, there are many different types of heat bars to suit each type of pot.
Heat rods can also be damaged even if made of good materials, because the heat rod is a device that operates frequently and is subject to high temperatures. The cause of the damaged heat exchanger may come from the characteristics of the device such as: high frequency use, poor quality or improper storage and use by the user.
Causes of boiler heat exchanger failure
The first reason that the boiler heat rod is damaged is that when the boiler is used continuously for a long time, the heat rod operates at a high frequency, leading to a decrease in the ability to transfer heat. Therefore, it is necessary to replace them to make the boiler operate more efficiently. The sign that the boiler heater is no longer working properly is when you feel that the boiling time is longer than before, it means that the life of the heater has deteriorated and needs to be replaced.
The second cause: the voltage used is too high compared to the specified voltage of the boiler heat rods, causing them to burn and damage. Therefore, you need to choose a boiler with a voltage suitable for the voltage of the power source.
The last cause is not cleaning and maintaining the boiler heat rod. If the heat rod is less cleaned after a period of use, there will be a layer of residue on the outside of the heat rod, leading to their inefficient operation, poor heat dissipation, longer boiling water and you also need to replace it. Therefore, to limit this situation, regularly clean and scrub the heat bars so that they transfer the best heat.
If you do not know the cause of the broken boiler heat rod, please contact KS – Boiler immediately to have our staff assist in answering questions and consulting on choosing a quality boiler heat rod good, have a long life.
