Our lightweight Single Stroke Cleaner is designed to address the severe challenges within the recovery process. Our low-maintenance features include a non-stick cleaning head that prevents itself from getting wedged inside the port opening and an external cleaning rod bearing that is easy to access. The spherical trunnion allows for several degrees of adjustment, eliminating the need for costly and complicated mounting frames. The angled design allows the cleaner to cut smelt from the port by cleaning from top to bottom with the longest stroke of any cleaner, making it more effective than typical single punch designs.
- (FEGT) up to 212 °F
- Unique mounting system eliminates the need for boiler shut downs to align cleaning head
Automatic Port Cleaners (APC)
The patented “index cleaning” technology design of the Clyde Industries APC allows for the lowest risk of cleaning failure, lowest cost of maintenance and lowest operating cost of any port cleaner on the market. By vertically indexing the serrated cleaning tip, the APC gradually cleans the entire port area with the least amount of mechanical stress on the components. This index virtually eliminates the risk of hazard exposure to personnel or production upsets because of an inability to clean tough deposits or jammed rods. This is the only system that can clean continually during normal boiler operation, and most of the time during disturbances.
- Small cleaning heads at the Primary level = less impact on the system
- Single critical degree
- Can be joined together for a 40% reduction to critical moving parts
- Up to 3-times less expensive than competitor
