Soot Blowers

EEI has successfully designed, manufactured and supplied more than 550 soot blowers to our national and international clients.

In an industrial boiler, soot/ash/slag accumulates on the surface of the coils/ tubes, and results in a reduction of heat transfer. Since the soot deposition can erode and corrode the metal surface, it is necessary to remove this accumulation periodically in order to increase efficiency and boiler performance.

Our range of soot blowers include:

  • Long Retractable Soot Blowers (LRSB)
  • Wall De-slaggers/ Short Retractable Soot Blower (SRSB)
  • Rotary Motorised Soot Blower (RMSB)
  • Rake type Soot Blower (RSB)

Long Retractable Soot Blowers

Long Retractable Soot Blowers (LRSB) function is to remove soot deposited on coils / tubes in high temperature zone. To avoid sagging of the lance element from high temperature of flue gases, LRSB are parked outside the boiler. Venturi nozzles fitted on the lancing element achieve high cleaning efficiency.

Wall De-slagger (Short Retractable Soot Blower)

Wall de-slaggers are designed to remove soot / ash / slag deposited on furnace wall/ side wall tubes. The lance element retracts and cleans soot deposited on side wall/ furnace tubes.

The wall de-slagger is mounted directly on the wall box and external support is not required

Rotary Motorised Soot Blower

This is designed to remove soot / ash / slag deposited on tubes in economizer as well as boiler tubes in low temperature zone (below 750 degrees Celsius). The lance element remains inside boiler/ economizer all the time.

Rake type Soot Blowers (RSB)

RSB uses a rake blowing element to clean mainly the surfaces of bare & finned tubes. RSB used at low flue gas temperature and in condition of light fouling. It gives the best blowing efficiency by the action of several nozzels moving between each row of tubes. with the following details for techno- commercial offer
