Cleaning Tubes by Hand is Inefficient •A dirty, messy job that's often put-off or avoided
• Not practical when done manually.
Boilers would have to be cleaned at least 3 to 4
times per day to maintain peak efficiency.
• Costly in terms of labor. Often scheduled
"after hours" at overtime rates.
• Soot has five times the insulating value of asbestos.
• Accumulations of soot waste fuel.
• Clean boilers deliver more heat per fuel dollar.
Saves the Boiler • Sulfur and vanadium in soot causes pitting and corrosion of boiler surfaces.
• Baked-on soot can eventually cause boiler tube failures.
• Automatic tube cleaning increases boiler tube life-expectancy.
Pays for Itself • 6 to 20% annual fuel savings result from increased boiler
• No downtime or lost production for cleaning.
• Helps increase boiler output to meet increasing demand.
Low Cost Operation... Maintenance Free • Cleans according to demand-tied into burner controls.
• No moving parts. All Welded construction.
Cuts Air Pollution • Helps control stack emissions.
• Most of soot reburned.
• Clean boilers use less fuel.
FOR ALL TYPES OF FIRETUBE BOILERS • 2, 3, 4-pass
• Firebox or Scotch Marine
• Induced or natural draft
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS • Heavy Oil
• Waste Heat
• Any Residual Fuel
