On-line Accretion Removal

  • Removes operator from hazards
  • Fully automated on-line operation
  • 5% increase in availability
  • 20% increase in production
  • Eliminates furnace damage
  • Adaptable to other furnaces
Built for:

Extreme Operating Conditions

The system operates in an extremely harsh environment with temperatures above 2,000° Celcius and a heavily dust laden SO2 atmosphere.

Operational Benefits

The furnace transition opening is maintained by constantly keeping accretion at a low level, resulting in steady state furnace operation and improving furnace stability and productivity. It mills accretion into fines leading to a reduction in downstream blockages.

Safety & Equipment Benefits

Once installed into production daily shutdowns, manual interventions, safety issues and potential furnace damage are vitually eliminated.
