The rodding robot is a simple robust automated port cleaning system, with a single stroke and painted flex head technology recovery boiler ports are cleaned regularly which increases the capacity of the recovery boiler, hence increasing steam production and reducing emissions. Manual air port cleaning is often irregular, leading to unstable boiler operation. Manual rodding is hard, hot and dangerous work.

  • More stable boiler operation
  • Better SO2 combustion
  • Easier to keep the bed in shape
  • Higher bed temperature Increased steam production Greater recovery boiler capacity
  • Labour saving
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Less need for soot blowing
  • Longer operating times between stoppages for boiler cleaning
  • Reduced NOx
