RECLEAN PRO™ provides customers with their most reliable partner in our people, systems and in all ongoing technical support. Our mission is to enhance Cooling Tower / Chiller / Boiler operation by reducing our customers’ energy and water consumption. RECLEAN PRO™ has been perfected by nearly two decades of R&D and is validated by hundreds of field installations. Our success is built on more than 40 years experience as an energy management, building automation and controls system contractor with a focus on RECLEAN PRO™ since 1997.
RECLEAN PRO™ saves money, reduces energy and water consumption, and enhances the performance of cooling tower/chiller/boiler operation. A skid mounted, side-stream particle precipitator installation minimizes any disruption to your operation, preventing downtime. We have developed this approach to reduce the risk of our clients’ growing Legionella and bacterial concerns. Our system’s operation is twofold. First, we remove up to 95% of suspended solids found in water down to one micron. Secondly, we hold dissolved solids in solution until bled out when the mineral levels reach conductivity setpoint.
Our commitment to reduce the consumption of energy and water within the facility enhances thermal transfer, giving higher equipment efficiency and providing a cleaner, greener, and healthier operation.
RECLEAN PRO’s™ Water/Energy Savings Approach – To provide a healthy, clean condenser/evaporative system is our primary goal A clean heat exchanger will save water and energy, as well as extend equipment lifecycles.
RECLEAN PRO™ Concentrates on Total Suspended Solids Removal and Control of Total Dissolved Solids Our technology improves thermal transfer in the condenser and evaporative heat exchangers. This will utilize each chiller to its optimal efficiency thereby saving energy. In turn, the cooling towers are a slave to the chiller heat load and abilities to transfer temperature through their exchangers. This is where water savings are achieved.
By removing suspended solids and controlling dissolved solids RECLEAN PRO™ has been successful in reducing large percentages of make-up water to the cooling towers and energy needed to operate chillers. Unlike most side-stream filters RECLEAN PRO’s™ system uses no media and requires no backwash or continuous maintenance.
RECLEAN PRO’s™ philosophy is to concentrate on evaporation rates rather than trying to extend bleed cycles. Make-up water to your cooling towers is divided into evaporation (75%) and bleed (25%). Bleed cycles are a necessary evil to rid the system of dissolved minerals (scale). Pushing or extending bleed cycles is risky business and will cost energy in the long run. Remember, bleed makes up only 25% of a towers usage in most cases.
RECLEAN PRO™ removes 95% of suspended solids down to one micron, which greatly increases the condenser water’s thermal transfer rate, and also manages dissolved solids that may produce fouling (scale). RECLEAN PRO™ monitors chillers approach temperatures which will verify our system’s effectiveness in keeping exchanger tubes clean. RECLEAN PRO™ monitors and logs monthly make-up and bleed usages.
RECLEAN PRO™ concentrates on evaporation rate needed – 75% of your system’s usage.
RECLEAN PRO’s™ water savings have never been the result of increased bleed cycles. Our success is in direct proportion to the improvement in equipment efficiencies.

The air conditioning and refrigeration industry has been increasing the efficiency of its equipment dramatically. One of the biggest contributors to these efficiency gains in the past has been the modification of heat exchangers to use nhanced surfaces, such as attached/integral fins, porous coatings, reentrant cavities and internal grooving. Today, a radically new method of increasing heat transfer efficiency, called the electrohydrodynamic (EHD) technique, is being investigated. Some early results have shown more than a 1000 percent increase in heat transfer coefficients of R-134a.
The EHD technique works by applying a high-voltage electrostatic potential field across a heat transfer fluid, such as a refrigerant or refrigerant mixture. The applied electric field serves to destabilize the thermal boundary layer, increasing boiling or condensation of the fluid near the heat transfer surface, and producing better mixing of the bulk fluid flow. The net effect is to increase the heat transfer coefficient, sometimes by several hundred percent. Although the EHD technique can be applied to both single phase and phase change heat transfer, it is more effective when applied to phase change processes (boiling and condensation).
A common method for using the EHD effect is to suspend a charged electrode (for example, a straight wire running parallel to the tube) in the fluid medium and to electrically ground the heat transfer surface. The reverse case (charging the surface and grounding the wire) is also possible. The applied electric field can be either direct or alternating. The field polarity in most cases has little effect on the enhancement mechanism, particularly for the phase change processes. For shell-and-tube heat exchangers, the tube and shell sides can be simultaneously energized by placing electrodes in both the tube and shell sides. For plate heat exchangers there is no need for an external wire electrode, as the plates themselves can serve as the electrodes by charging one plate and grounding the other.
Initial studies have been done with several refrigerants, including R-123, R-134a, an R-11/ Ethanol mixture, and R-404A. The improvements in heat transfer are dramatic, especially at lower refrigerant qualities (more liquid and less vapor). This may allow manufacturers to produce highly compact heat exchangers with less complicated surfaces without sacrificing heat transfer efficiency.
Another potential application is to use continuously EHD enhancement with smaller, less costly heat exchangers. The EHD effect would offset the loss of heat transfer capacity experienced from the smaller heat exchanger. Similarly, EHD could be used in place of, or in conjunction with, enhanced surface heat exchangers.
