AcoustiClean Sonic Horns provide several material flow benefits that plant managers need. AcoustiClean Sonic Horns produce high-energy, low-frequency sound vibrations that disperse dry material. It can help clean vessels and equipment like silos, hoppers, heaters, and fans to minimize downtime and material build-up.
Sonic horns are often used in industries like cement, petrochemical, and power generation. However, it can benefit any process where material build-up can occur.
AcoustiClean reaches blind spots
Manual cleaning can be tedious, time-consuming, or even impossible in inaccessible areas. AcoustiClean’s powerful sound vibrations can clear out material in seconds, even in equipment that is hard to clean (i.e, pipes or baghouses) or are in hard-to-reach locations. It can also reach blind spots that mechanical soot blowers and rapping systems often miss.
No equipment damage
Unlike other cleaning systems that use pressurized air, sound vibrations don’t damage sensitive equipment like tubes.
Customizable for different environments
AcoustiClean can be made of either stainless steel or cast iron. Stainless steel can be sanitized easily and is suitable for food and sanitary applications. Cast iron can withstand temperatures up to 2000ºF.
A manufacturer of building materials sends waste materials like wood flakes and wet bark to a boiler furnace. However, the soot build-up affected the boiler’s heat transfer efficiency and clogged the equipment.
They tried installing soot blowers, but these melted in the furnace’s high temperatures. The pressurized air also damaged the tubes, further adding to their equipment costs.
The manufacturer replaced soot blowers with AcoustiClean Sonic Horns and saw instant results. With the soot removed, the furnace temperatures remained steady and allowed optimum production time.
AcoustiClean is Versatile
AcoustiClean Sonic Horns can be mounted and hung on practically any kind of equipment.
- Baghouse Filters
- Super Heaters
- Air Heaters
- ID Fans
The AcoustiClean system is designed to be efficient and very easy to maintain. The only parts that need to be replaced are the sound generators (every few years) and the titanium diaphragm (the only moving part, which is replaced yearly).
