The Sootblower Fouling Detection (SFD) System is an ITM proprietary technology (Patent Pending) for the measurement of fouling along the path of a sootblower in recovery and utility boilers.
This system has two primary purposes. One is to help understand where fouling is occurring in order to optimize sootblowing. The other is to provide real-time data for control systems which will allow for targeted sootblowing. Both of these will result in immediate savings in steam consumption, prevention of tube erosion in areas with little to no buildup and increased boiler efficiency in areas with significant buildup.
A secondary benefit of the SFD is sootblower condition monitoring. Conditions include but are not limited to: what’s the condition of the SB motor and gearbox; is the poppet valve stuck open; is the track damaged; is the sootblower lance bent; is the sootblower stuck in the boiler, what condition is the sootblower packing; and are there any steam leaks on or near the sootblower.
- Saves steam consumption
- Reduces boiler tube erosion
- Increases boiler efficiency
