Maximum flexibility for on-load cleaning of the convection area Deposits in the convective heating areas tend to have an uneven distribution.
The use of conventional cleaning technologies can lead to the following issues: Insufficient cleaning of badly affected areas due to cleaning parameters set to less deposited areas; tube wear in zones with less or no deposits due to intensified cleaning of heavily deposited areas.
The non-uniform fouling distribution requires a corresponding flexibility from the on-load boiler cleaning system to achieve the best and most economic cleaning results.
Our solution The RX-SMART Helix is a long retractable sootblower with a unique dual-motor design which allows independent and variable traversing and rotational speeds. The speeds can be varied at any time.
All parameters required for cleaning – traversing speed, rotational speed, blowing pressure, blowing angle – can be set as required with a flexible combination.This leads to different cleaning intensities that best match the actual deposit situation
Cleaning parameters aligned with the reqirementsof badly deposited zones
Cleaning parameters adjusted to the requirements of the actual deposit situation
Results of the utilization of RX-SMART Helix
Cleaning parameters can be adjusted to the actual deposit situation
RX-SMART Helix minimises erosion
RX-SMART Helix economically uses steam or air – cleaning media savings of up to 60 %
Extended boiler availability
Improved heat transfer
Increased boiler efficiency
When combined with diagnostics/analysis modules of the SMART CLEAN ISB platform, it is turned into a fully automated on-load cleaning system that can be seamlessly integrated into your control system
