Hudson has been the leader in chiller decontamination services for nearly three decades and we have raised the bar considerably in decontamination services utilizing our fast, thorough processes to remove contaminants that would otherwise be left behind by other methods. In fact, our unique and proprietary ZugiBeast® equipment performs up to 10 times faster than anything else in the industry for both online and offline services.

Moisture Reduction

Moisture Reduction

ISSUE

Moisture reductions can be performed on wet systems that are not completely saturated with water. Depending on the current level of moisture, your refrigerant may require moisture reduction.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • On-site moisture reduction can be performed using our unique and proprietary ZugiBeast®
  • Reduces chiller downtime
  • Frees your technicians for other profitable work, thereby increasing your service revenues
  • Salvages the maximum amount of refrigerant, saving on the cost of replacement refrigerant

System Dehydration

System Dehydration

ISSUE

Moisture has fully entered your system, requiring a dehydration. Our process can reduce the presence of residual contaminants, which can be left in the system when using traditional methods such as vacuum pumps and air-drying.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Equipment and knowledge to cut weeks off the dehydration process
  • Reduces chiller downtime
  • Rapidly dehydrates air-cooled units
  • Frees your technicians for other profitable work
  • Reduce residual contaminants
  • Minimizes the chance of rust or corrosion
  • Salvages the maximum amount of refrigerant

Rust or Particulate Reduction

Rust or Particulate Reduction

ISSUE

With so many ways for moisture to enter a system, rust and related particulate contamination has always been a problem for chiller and refrigeration systems. Tubing with rust buildup can degrade chillers performance so much that it must be shut down.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Reduces rust and other particulates from tube surfaces,
  • In some cases, may eliminate the time and expense of re-tubing
  • Regains lost system capacity
  • Restores heat transfer efficiency

Chemical Decontamination

Chemical Decontamination

ISSUE

Chemicals, acids, and other contaminants in your refrigerant ultimately affect efficiency, can lead to downtime, and possible catastrophic failure. Contaminated refrigerants cause a variety of issues that may range from decreased cooling performance and increased energy use, to significantly reducing the operating life of the equipment, and even equipment failures.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Restores system efficiency
  • Effectively reduces chemical contaminants
  • Salvages the maximum refrigerant, saving on the cost of replacement refrigerant
  • Avoids lengthy downtime and repairs normally associated with this problem

Hermetic Motor Burnout

Hermetic Motor Burnout

ISSUE

Hermetic motor burnout is one of the most time consuming and expensive repairs chiller owners face. If the contaminants are not thoroughly removed, a costly secondary burnout becomes more likely.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Decontaminates centrifugal screw or reciprocating chillers in hours not days
  • Reduces all contaminants the first time
  • Reduces the need for cleanup kits, extra filter cores and suction dryers
  • Reduces chance of a second premature burnout

Excess Oil Reduction

Excess Oil Reduction

ISSUE

Over time, oil can build up in your chiller. This causes your chiller capacity to decline, degrading your energy efficiency. As more oil contaminates the refrigerant, the more efficiency is lost, and the more money is spent on energy. A decrease in capacity increases the risk of a potential breakdown.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Restores lost chiller capacity and energy efficiency
  • Minimizes or eliminate downtime
  • Targets all refrigerant and system contaminants including acids, oil, moisture, and particulates

Cross Contamination of Oils

Cross Contamination of Oils

ISSUE

Mixed oil can find its way into your chiller system. Cross-contaminated oils can cause a variety of issues that may range from decreased cooling performance and increased energy use, to significantly reducing the operating life of the equipment, and even equipment failures.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Depending on the severity of the issue we have a number of remedial solutions available
  • Restores lost chiller capacity and energy efficiency
  • Minimizes or eliminates downtime

Chillers Damaged by Ruptured Tubes

Chillers Damaged by Ruptured Tubes

ISSUE

Water can get into refrigerant from ruptured evaporator/condenser tubes, leaking tube sheets, tube leaks, or ice trapped in refrigeration circuits. The smallest amount can lead to expensive repairs. Even more costly is when moisture ingresses into compressors and motors.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Decontaminate your refrigerant at benchmark speeds
  • Minimizes expensive water damage to compressors and motors
  • Reduces all water and other contaminants from the refrigerant
  • Fast response and rapid evacuation of the system
  • Salvages the maximum amount of refrigerant, saving on the cost of replacement refrigerant

Lithium Bromide Recovery, Disposal & Analysis

Lithium Bromide Recovery, Disposal & Analysis

ISSUE

If you have service work to do on system, you may need to recover and store your lithium bromide chemicals. Also, for absorbers that are being demolished, modified, or renovated, you may need to recover, store, or even dispose your lithium bromide.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Lab analysis of lithium bromide solution
  • Full recovery services
  • If necessary, disposal of your used lithium bromide as well as complete documentation of the disposal services
  • Frees your technicians for other profitable work, thereby increasing your service revenues

Glycol Recovery, Disposal & Analysis

Glycol Recovery, Disposal & Analysis

ISSUE

If you have service work to do on system, you may need to recover and store your glycol. Also, glycol and brine systems that are being demolished, modified, or renovated, you may need to recover, store, or even dispose your glycol.

HUDSON SOLUTION

  • Lab analysis of glycol solution
  • Full recovery services
  • If necessary, disposal of your used glycol as well as complete documentation of the disposal services
  • Frees your technicians for other profitable work, thereby increasing your service revenues
