Oscillating Sootblower PS-PB
Oscillating Sootblower (PS-PB)

Operating Principle

  • The blowing tube with high-performance nozzles over the whole length, is movably supported in the flue-gas path
  • During the blowing process, the blowing tube continues to oscillate and move into the flue-gas path
  • On reaching the prescribed travel, the direction of movement changes and the blowing tube returns to its rest position
  • The blowing tube remains partly in the flue-gas path

Technical Summary

The Oscillating sootblower is designed for the selected cleaning of specific boiler segments with fouling in power plants, waste-to-energy facilities, biomass plants, petrochemical plants and other industrial applications.

The Oscillating sootblowers offer excellent results in cleaning performance. Using the most effective cleaning nozzle in the market, cleaning impact is maximised with a minimal amount of blowing media. The key feature is the oscillating movement of the cleaning element.  Also suitable for hazardous area conditions.

  • Cleaning Medium: Steam, Air
  • General Application Areas: Superheater, Reheater, Economiser
  • Travel Range: 0.3 m – 6 m
  • Cleaning Arc: 60 ° – 360 °
  • Oscillating Arc: 50 ° – 90 °
  • Key Industries: Power Generation, Waste-to-Energy, Biomass, Oil & Gas, Other Industrial Processes

Key Features

  • Poppet valve with adjustable throttle disc for easy setting of the blowing pressure
  • Stainless-steel feed tube, polished to minimise leakage at stuffing box connection with lance tube assembly
  • Temperature and corrosion-resistant blowing element with high performance nozzles
  • Compact single-rack track beam with standard top covering
  • Integrated gear motor with special mechanism for simultaneous axial and oscillating movement
  • Integrated multi-blowing pattern for more uniform and complete cleaning with minimum erosion impact to the heating surfaces (optional)
  • Travel monitoring by two limit switches
  • Wall box with sealing elements corresponding to boiler pressure mode
  • Sealing and scavenging air piping with dedicated fan (optional)
  • Add-ons: SMART Set for external adjustment of throttle disc / Self-adjusting stuffing box packing

Product Benefits

  • Increased plant availability due to reliable boiler cleaning, resulting in efficient plant operation
  • Prevents heavy fouling at targeted cleaning areas
  • Increased boiler efficiency through improved heat transfer
  • Reliable and simple to maintain
  • Intelligent, flexible operation, in conjunction with SMART Convection (optional)
