2 more orders on HISS

The new orders are for a black liquor boiler in Iggesund, Sweden, and for a waste incineration plant in southern Sweden. What the customers have in common is that they want to use HISS to gain better control over their boiler and in this way improve the function. At the waste incineration plant, they want to reduce the wear caused by the steam sootblowers. They also want to reduce the amount of steam consumed and use it for generating energy. At Heat Management, we now have a strong tailwind partly due to sales of the HISS portfolio. Another thing that’s positive is how satisfied our existing customers are with their installations, showing improvements in many aspects, not only regarding steam savings, wear reduction, reduced pressure pulsations and increased load but also other improvements that are related to the stability of the boiler Details about the Iggesund black liquor boiler project: This project will include upgrading the existing control system for the 92 [...]

Heat Management bring in business in Spain

Spain is an interesting market in many aspects for Heat Management, partly because of its strong chemical pulp production industry, but also due to having many biofuel boilers. Since the olive oil industry is strong in Spain, a common fuel is based on olive residues. The fuel is rich in energy but can cause severe problems with deposits and fouling in the boiler system. In order to reduce downtime for manual cleaning, Infrasound cleaning will now be used to minimize the problems. Heat Management has now taken the first order within the Spanish olive-based fuel industry. The target is to improve efficiency, reduce downtime and generally improve the process. The fuel is renewable and environmentally friendly, which makes it attractive to use. Big thanks to our partner Per Hörnstein Per Hörnstein has a long experience in the process industry and a lot of knowledge of combusting systems and boilers. He graduated from Chalmers Technical University, in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1974 [...]

Chemical pulp plant in Central Europe implementing HISS

2020 has been busy on many fronts and we’ve been having a lot of orders coming in, both big and small. We can now reveal that we’ve received an order on our High impact sootblowing system (HISS)  from a chemical pulping plant in Central Europe. Up until now, we’ve mainly implemented the HISS solution on plants within Sweden. With this order, we now take the technology to other countries in Europe.  The objective for the client is to further improve their environmental impact as a provider of green energy for the local market. The chemical pulping plants play an important role in generating energy for both district heating and for the generation of renewable electricity. Our new client’s chemical mill needed to meet the objectives of their environmental green strategy. With the implementation of the High impact soot system, the chemical pulping plant will make it possible to increase the amount of steam for the paper machines and also increase [...]

How we optimize steam sootblowing systems

High Impact Sootblowing System General Installation Procedure Below describes the measures necessary for the implementation of the High Impact Soot System (HISS), for the optimization of steam soot blower and recovery boiler operation.  Step 1 – Install pneumatic actuator on the steam soot blowers The installation takes approximately 10 – 15 min per blower and can be performed during boiler operation. The actuators can be bypassed with a blocking pin. Step 2 – Install pneumatic control boxes for HISS The actuators are operated with instrument air at ~6 bar and is distributed to the soot blowers, through pneumatic control boxes. Each control box can handle up to 12 soot blowers. Step 3 – Install ACABBM 800M controllers for the actuators The contactors for the soot blowers are replaced with new ones, with direction control. Furthermore, an ACABBM 800M controller is installed. This make up the controls for the HISS-function. Step 4 – Implementation of operator control display The soot blower [...]

Benefits of infrasound as acoustic soot cleaning method

The first installation of an Infrafone Sonic Soot Cleaner with the purpose to keep an industrial boiler clean from soot was carried out in 1978. The boiler was an MgO boiler in a paper mill at Stora Enso in Hyltebruk, Sweden. The success of that installation taught us about the power of infrasound. The experience that we have obtained over the years has taught us how to create value with infrasound. The properties of sound differ substantially depending on the frequency range. Sound can be divided into infrasound, audible sound, and ultrasound. Infrafone harnesses the power of infrasound, which is sound with frequencies below 30 Hz. Infrasound waves have many properties that make them suitable for soot cleaning applications: Infrasound waves have a long wavelength. The acoustic power can reach areas far away from the acoustic source, unlike conventional soot cleaning methods. Infrasound waves are Omni-directional. This means that they spread in all directions with the same intensity, which implies [...]
