Air Preheater Cleaning
Computer Controlled Cleaning:
Are clogged or restricted preheater wheels costing you thousands of dollars in reduced operating capacity? Riley Industrial Services has an efficient and economical solution: Computer automated, high-pressure water jetting. Keeping regenerative air preheaters clean has long been a challenge faced by utilities running coal-fired boilers. Traditional cleaning methods such as steam or air soot blowers and high-volume water washing have provided only partial solutions. Now, with Riley Industrial’s automated system, horizontal or vertical preheater wheels are cleaned thoroughly, precisely and efficiently.
Our automated cleanings system is capable of producing flows to 300 GPM and pressures up to 8,000 psi. These high-pressure jets are concentrated in a very small area — generally less than 1/4 inch, resulting in less rotor damage and more precise cleaning than manual methods allow.
Compared to Manual lancing techniques, your rotors are 15 to 25 percent cleaner after our automated cleaning and in less that 24 hours. Plus far less water is used, reducing waste water removal costs.
Cost Effective Cleaning:
Using Riley Industrial Service’s computer controlled cleaning your savings will add up quickly. We are able to do the job more efficiently with less manpower. Your rotors are returned to almost 100 percent of their original efficiency in less time for less money!
