Before the installation of the Infrafone Sonic Soot Cleaner, the economizer and the air preheater were steam soot blowed three times per day. After the installation the steam soot blowing has been reduced to only once per day.

Some of the benefits that the Sonic Soot Cleaning System has brought to the customer are:

  • Increased electricity production due to reduced steam soot blowing.
  • Reduced wear on air preheater and economizer tubes.
