Throughout dry processing, storage, transport, power generation and manufacturing industries, dry materials and particulates within plant, pipework and silos are a major problem. Build-up of material can not only present an explosive hazard but can seriously impact on a system's efficiency, maintenance and running costs. Build-ups and ultimately blockages will seriously reduce flow, cause greater risk of cross-contamination, increase downtime and even shorten a plant's operational life.
Often the only answers are deemed to be intrusive or destructive remedies such as air cannons, soot blowers, external vibrators, hammering or costly, time consuming and dangerous man-entry - which usually requires system degassing and the use of respirators by highly trained support teams. Every one of these techniques can not only result in substantial periods of expensive downtime but can actually damage your plant.
However, there is a better solution ...Primasonics® Acoustic Cleaners offer a highly cost-effective, virtually maintenance free solution to internal system cleaning. Unlike work carried out during shutdowns, Acoustic Cleaners work alongside the normal operation of your plant to deliver a constant programme of cleaning. This can be timed to operate on a regular basis, or to coincide with normal system cycles such as changeouts and shift changes to actually prevent problems before they start costing you serious money.
Operating in the audiosonic or infrasonic ranges, Acoustic Cleaners utilise carefully selected sound frequencies to resonate ash, dust, powder and granules - causing them to debond from the surfaces they have adhered to. What is more, this revolutionary system is highly effective in every situation where dry materials or particulates builds up - even in the largest silos and the most inaccessible corners of your plant.
