Retractable Sootblower (VX-H)
Retractable Sootblower (VX-H)

Operating Principle

  • The lance tube with high-performance nozzles is helically moved into the flue-gas path
  • The blowing process begins shortly after the nozzles have passed through the boiler wall
  • On reaching the prescribed travel, the direction of movement changes and the lance tube returns to its rest position
