The shock waves created by the detonation process dislodge the various types of deposit

Detonative technology for cleaning combustion chambers in large boilers

    • We use detonative cleaning technology to remove deposits of dust, dirt and other kinds of material. These deposits are dislodged by the shock waves created by the detonation process. The amount of explosives used depends on the volume of fouling that needs to be removed but this amount is always kept at a safe level so your plant is never at risk.

      The igniters and cartridges containing industrial gelatinous explosives, which we use to carry out our detonative cleaning work, are all made by German manufacturers. By deploying a special camera, we are able to observe the online detonation process as it takes place in the combustion chamber.

    Thanks to this detonative cleaning system, large volumes of deposits are broken up into smaller pieces within no time at all so that they can then be removed from the chamber. Detonative technologies are combined with standard cleaning systems

We can offer you a comprehensive package of services
