Energy-from-waste plants process unrecyclable household waste as well as suitable industrial or commercial waste.
They recuperate 80% of the energy produced by combustion, turning it into steam which drives steam turbines to create electricity. There are a number of issues that are common to EfW plants and many solutions that Online Cleaning offers to ensure your plant runs as efficiently as possible, with the fewest shutdowns possible.
The combustion process and other high-temperature waste treatment systems convert the waste into ash and flue gas. The various parts of these energy-from-waste power stations have to be cleaned to maintain production and ensure the plant remains stable. Rather than shutting down the plant, which can be costly, this can be done during operation using our Patented Linear Cleaning method and other methods, depending on the location of the fouling.
Our Patented Linear Method is one of the most effective ways to break up and dislodge ash no matter the volume or density.
Online Cleaning Technologies experts remotely track and analyse the state of contamination using our Real Time Monitoring Dashboard. In combination with our in-depth knowledge of EfW plants and their inner-working we monitor the delta-T and delta-P values and other key parameters. This insight informs our cleaning plans before wear and tear to the plant occurs and causes serious problems. The dashboard provides insights to reduce maintenance costs, increase plant performance and minimise downtime.
In addition, our Dashboard system can be utilised to monitor and maintain flue gas temperatures in the boilers and superheaters below 650 degrees, avoiding the corrosion that could otherwise occur if boilers regularly reached beyond that temperature.
