Only fill the heat exchanger if there is no danger
of freezing.
3.
Fill the heat exchanger and vent it. To fill the
system, use clean tap water
(pH value 6.5 to 9) or a water glycol mixture
(max. 30% glycol).
4.
Check the system for leaks immediately
after installation and then in regular
intervals.
Ensure that the surfaces are clean

Commissioning and cleaning
Commissioning
Cleaning
Cleaning the casing
Before you start commissioning:



Ensure that all connections are correct
Ensure that all passive chilled beams are clean
and free from residues and foreign matter
Ensure that the water system including the
heat exchanger has been filled and
vented
The casing may be cleaned with a damp cloth.
Sticky dirt or contamination may be removed with
a commercial, non-aggressive cleaning agent.
Cleaning agents that contain chlorine must not be
used.
Cleaning the heat exchanger
Carefully clean the heat exchanger with an
industrial vacuum cleaner. Be careful to not
damage the fins. We recommend using a soft
brush on the suction inlet.
Contamination tends to deposit mainly
above the heat exchanger. We therefore
recommend cleaning both the top and
the bottom of the heat exchanger.
