Removing Entrained Air & Dirt from Heat Transfer Systems
The purpose of fluids in heating and cooling systems is to transport heat or cold to where it is needed. The optimum conditions for this are a well-designed, clean system with fluid that contains as little air and dirt as possible. If air and dirt are not removed or are not removed sufficiently, all sorts of hindrances and problems can arise. These can include annoying noises, the need for regular manual venting, reduced pump performance, system imbalance, unnecessary malfunctions, excessive wear and higher energy consumption.
