The CLARCOR Industrial Air BHA Powerwave+ acoustic cleaning system can significantly improve the cleaning of air pollution control equipment, heat transfer surfaces, material handling and storage equipment and areas of production where particulate buildup occurs. As an alternative to sootblowers and sootblower cleaning, acoustic cleaners are air-operated devices that emit low frequency, high-energy sound waves. The sound waves create vibrations powerful enough to break apart and dislodge heavy concentrations of particulate on surfaces, but gentle enough to not harm the surface. Once the material has been dislodged, gravity and/or gas flow removes it.
BHA Powerwave+ impulse cleaning system enhances boiler operation and minimizes high maintenance expenses associated with other cleaning methods. This revolutionary technology provides significant advantages over traditional methods like sootblowing, rapping, manual shaking, blasting and high-pressure water washing. Because the BHA Powerwave+ effectively cleans using controlled and repeated impulses, cleaning can be performed online. Another advantage over traditional methods is the benefit from less tube wear and no unnecessarily wasted steam and water.
