Our Next-Gen Synthetic Catalyst
Onformant’s ClearFlow Catalyst is the most cost-effective way to restore lost system SEER (seasonal energy efficient ratio) performance in your refrigeration and HVAC equipment.
Achieve and maintain a high level of system performance.
Improve Long-Term Coil Heat Transfer
What is Oil Fouling?
In all air conditioning and refrigeration systems, 0.5% to 8% of the compressor’s lubricating oil circulates with the refrigerant. This oil attaches to the inner walls of the refrigeration tubing and ultimately block heat transfer and reduce your system efficiency.
The heat transfer efficiency loss due to oil-fouling is restored to near new equipment levels by using the ClearFlow synthetic catalyst to break the surface tension forces between the oil globules and the walls of the refrigeration tubing. The absence of oil-fouling restores the loss of 20% to 30% heat transfer efficiency. An added benefit is that the capillary tubes, expansion valves and heat pump’s 4-way valves are also cleaned and will not oil-foul again.
Yes. ClearFlow has been tested to show that it is compatible with all modern compressor oils.
ClearFlow has been fully tested for its compatibility with compressor parts, including metals, rubber seals, and gasket materials found in compressors. The accelerated test to show the effects of the use of ClearFlow over a long period of time showed no significant change in any of the materials exposed to ClearFlow. In addition, wear tests have been conducted, which resulted in a 50% reduction in wear and friction after the use of ClearFlow.
Independent third-party performance testing on ClearFlow has been conducted in refrigerated trucks. The performance testing was conducted in a completely controlled environment, and results showed a 15% reduction in diesel fuel consumption and a 15% faster cool-down inside refrigerated trailers.
In independent testing focused on data-center energy reduction, ClearFlow delivered measurable and substantial efficiency gains and energy reduction in data-center cooling equipment.
