Ric, et al

I think it only referred to as Muriatic Acid in the US. Other places will refer to it as Hydrochloric acid which is a solution of hydrogen chloride (HCl) in water.

I have to correct myself. It is 5%  Muriatic acid vs. Sulfuric. I am curious if there is any Diesel maintenance books that suggest this. Even if removed for cleaning.

Brick cleaner is generally a 5% solution of Sulfuric acid. Easily bought in gallon jugs at any hardware store mixed at that rate. Not sure I would want to “run-in-thru my engine and dislodging scale, only to clog somewhere else.

Hello Bill et al,

 

I just spent the day at Onan UK learning about the MDKAL.  Another Amel owner was there… he had done the organising for this course.

 

If one wishes to do the cleaning himself, the instructor said that well diluted “brick cleaner” would do the trick in 10 minutes.

 

Remove the heat exchanger and immerse the unit in the above solution.  Rinse well then reinstall the component.

 

Basta.

JP,

 

I brought the heat exchanger to an automotive radiator shop. They cleaned it for me.

Bill,
What kind of acid do you use to clean the onan heat exchanger ? What concentration? Thanks
