HMA Power Generation/Diamond Power (Australia) Pty Ltd have been supplying sootblowers to the Australia and New Zealand markets for over 50 years.
A sootblower is a device for removing the soot that is deposited on the internal furnace tubes of a boiler during combustion to prevent plugging of the gas passes and maintain boiler efficiency.
Most common types of sootblowers:
Furnace wall sootblower IR (Insertable Rotating) for cleaning the wall on which it is attached
Long retractable sootblower IK (Insertable Kinetic) for cleaning the convection pass
Generating bank and economiser sootblower G9B for fully inserted rotating element
Rake sootblower for cleaning economiser and finned tubes
Air heater sootblower for rotating assemblies
Steam is normally used as a medium for blowing away the soot since capital cost of steam pressure reducing equipment and drain is less than the cost of compressors, motors and control of air systems. Water is also common for furnace cleaning.
