The Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems offer several distinct advantages as a superior and cost effective alternative to conventional cleaning methods. They maintain plant efficiency at a high level. Nirafon acoustic cleaning system continuously removes soot, ash and particulate matter deposits from surfaces, thus preventing formation of build ups and maintaining heat transfer efficiency in boilers, pressure drops in bag filters, vibration levels in fans etc. at desired levels.
Nirafon acoustic cleaning is a totally independent process which does not require stoppage or interruption of production. Being an ‘on-line’ process, it significantly reduces or even eliminates down time and increases equipment availability. At the same time, Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems can be used during plant shutdowns to minimise requirement of manual cleaning.
Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems are fully automatic as the operation is controlled by means of an Electrical Control Unit / PLC with settings made as per requirements of the application. Once the system is switched on, no manual intervention is required for its operation.
Conventional cleaning methods such as steam soot blowing in boilers are known to cause erosion to the heating surfaces leading to their premature failure. Similarly, manual hammering of walls causes damage to hoppers, bins, and cyclones while excessive use of compressed air pulses in bag filters causes high mechanical fatigue to the fabric leading to premature failure of filter bags. The Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems perform the cleaning operation gently without causing damage, thereby enhancing the life of the mother equipment.
When compared with traditional alternatives such as steam soot blowers for keeping the heating surfaces of the boiler clean, the Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems offer an extremely cost effective solution from the viewpoint of capital cost. Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems require compressed air for their operation leading to much lower operating costs compared to traditional cleaning systems such as steam soot blowers which consume substantial quantities of steam having significant cost implications. Also power consumption of Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems is minimal compared to conventional cleaning methods.
Having minimal moving parts, Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems require negligible maintenance, service and spare part costs.
Nirafon acoustic cleaning systems are compact and occupy much less space compared to conventional cleaning devices such as long retractable soot blowers. This adds further to the cost effectiveness of the Nirafon systems.
