Waste-to-Energy power installations have a waste treatment process that involves the combustion of substances contained in waste materials.
Incineration and other high-temperature waste treatment systems convert the waste into ash and flue gas. The various parts of these Waste-to-Energy power installations have to be cleaned to maintain production and ensure the plant remains stable. Rather than shutting down the plant, which can be a costly exercise, this can be done during operation using our smart online cleaning solutions.
Shockwave cleaning in Waste-to-Energy power installations can create substantial operational gains when done pro-actively based upon real time monitoring of the key parameters. This is done by the Online Cleaning Technologies experts who remotely monitor the state of contamination (delta-T and delta-P values in combination with in depth knowledge of the installation). Due to this online insight regular shockwave cleanings are planned before wear and tear to the installation occur and serious problems can happen. The dashboard provides insights to reduce maintenance costs, increase plant performance and minimise downtime
Areas which benefit from online cleaning include:
- Superheater surfaces
- Combustion furnaces
- Spray driers
- Electrostatic precipitators (ESP)
- Cold traps
- Flue gas absorbers
- Burnout grates
