Tested and patented
boiler cleaning technology

A method to clean fouled heat transfer surfaces. VTT has tested it, clients have praised it.
Done by trained professionals.

What is Smart Blasting?

The Smart Blasting™ method removes slag deposits from power plant boilers, stops corrosion and forms a fouling-resistant layer of chromium oxide.

 

  • Patented technology cleans heat transfer surfaces
  • Grit blasting by well-trained and experienced staff
  • No negative downsides like other methods – no corrosion problems or dust
  • The best-possible cleaning result to maximise boiler performance
  • Fastest method available
  • The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd has tested this method that removes 100% of the dirt without damaging the boiler’s heat transfer surfaces

Method Comparisons

Smart Blasting™

 

  • Developed specifically to clean heat transfer surfaces
  • 100% clean result without surface damage
  • Fastest method
  • No corrosion problems
  • Less dust
  • Inspection-ready clean surfaces
  • Built on the circular economy model

Sand Blasting

 

  • Traditionally used to clean painted or coated surfaces
  • Extra careful cleaning needed, so as not to damage surfaces
  • Slow method, because dust blocks visibility
  • Surfaces must be polished for inspection
  • Sand is a virgin material – not  part of the circular economy

Hydro-blasting

 

  • Traditional way to clean everything
  • Slow method, especially when boilers are very dirty
  • Surfaces must be polished for inspection
  • Expensive waste handling
  • Water is a virgin material – not part of the circular economy

This is what you get

Even in difficult conditions

Q & A

How does Smart BlastingTM work?

Smart BlastingTM method removes slag deposits from power plant boilers, stops corrosion and forms a fouling-resistant layer of chromium oxide. The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd has tested this method that removes 100% of the dirt without damaging the boiler’s heat transfer surfaces.

What kind of plants is this method suitable for?

This method can be used for many boiler types. We clean mainly power boilers, but this method is suitable also for clearing other fouled heat transfer surfaces. For example, tube boilers that are typically used in sawmills can be effectively cleaned with Smart Blasting. Our clients include paper and pulp plants, incineration plants, sawmills and CHP plants among others.

How Smart BlastingTM differs from traditional cleaning methods?

Smart Blasting TM has been developed specifically for cleaning heat transfer surfaces. The used medium has been optimized for removing dirt (it clears but does not damage the surfaces), and as it is a dry method, it does not have the same adverse effects as hydro-blasting for instance.

What are its immediate benefits?

We call Smart Blasting cleaning a means of “resetting to factory settings”. Most often the boiler problems that occur during the run (pressure differences, the rise of end temperature) are caused by slag formations on heat transfer surfaces. When the slag is removed, it improves the heat transference and flue gas flow. The boiler functions return back to normal. When you invest in the cleaning of a boiler, it pays itself back instantly with an improved efficiency and minimized problems. Investing in a professional service is justifiably worth your while. It brings measurable results that enhance your business.

7 reasons to choose Smart Blasting

Smart Blasting™ method removes slag deposits from power plant boilers, stops corrosion and forms a fouling-resistant layer of chromium oxide.

  • 100% clean result – improves heat transference and flue gas flow immediately
  • Stops corrosion from spreading – minimizes related problems.
  • A quick method – a time saver!
  • 100% customer satisfaction – try it, and you won’t be disappointed!
  • Forms a protective layer of oxide that hinders future fouling – high level of effectiveness for longer time.
  • Inspection-ready clean surfaces – easier & quicker assessment of the piping condition.
  • Regular application extends the lifetime of the piping lifetime.

These facts are based on Clean Steel’s customer feedback questionnaire results and customer reports.
