After installing Infrafone Sonic Cleaners on two Howden air preheaters Suralaya Power has been able to keep a low and stable differential pressure over the air preheaters while reducing steam consumption for steam cleaning. A lower differential pressure has also ment that the load on the FD fan has been reduced.

Some of the benefits that the Sonic Soot Cleaners have brought to the customer are:

  • Reduced steam consumption for steam blowing.
  • Reduced wear of air preheater elements.
  • Low and stable differential pressure.
