Assessment
In response to this need and the demand to quantify each boiler’s cleanliness situation Clyde Industries, as the world’s leader in boiler cleaning technology, offers a Boiler Cleanliness Evaluation Service.

The Boiler Cleanliness Evaluation is a comprehensive service designed to evaluate each stations current cleanliness situation. The program considers the original boiler design criteria and operating metrics, the age and condition of the station, boiler modifications, fuel variability, future fuel opportunities, as well as current and projected business requirements for the plant.

The output of the program quantifies for station management specific deficiencies, cause and corrective action and the potential opportunities for improvement associated with the corrective actions.

Performance Monitoring + Optimization

Clyde Industries Boiler Performance Team was established in 2006 to meet the growing demand of remote performance monitoring and boiler optimization. The team will drive the maximum performance of your boiler, and optimize the cleaning system / strategy.

The team’s combined experiences have been used to monitor and optimize over 40 systems worldwide remote monitoring + optimization are carried out through secure VPN access or OSI PI, in collaboration with the plant’s security and IT team, to obtain critical boiler and sootblower related performance data. Raw data is then converted into valuable knowledge and used:

To early detect of problems with cleaning equipment
To make intelligent sootblowing decisions and achieve the plant’s performance objectives.
To ensure that the plant is on track with their Return on Investment (ROI).
Provide Management Reports + Training
Equipment Condition Assessment
Clyde Industries provides a comprehensive analysis of all components of the existing cleaning system including sootblowers, interconnecting wiring, controls, supply and drain piping, associated valves and instrumentation. Designed to quantify the system’s reliability and integrity by defining the condition of the system components and defines the requirements associated with bringing the system’s availability to an acceptable level in the event a deficiency exists.

Each component of the cleaning system will be inspected for current operability as well as longevity and suitability for service by factory trained Clyde Industrial technicians. The inspections are principally visual with certain pieces of equipment requiring operation to determine their condition. Operation of any equipment is coordinated with the control room through the plant designee.

The output of the inspections will include completed Life Cycle Assessment Report which identifies the current condition of the system component as well as its condition relative to its product life cycle. The deficiencies precluding the acceptable reliability level are itemized and corrective action(s) are provided which will bring the equipment to the acceptable level. Any upgrades to modern technologies that are available for the equipment that may be of benefit to the plant will also be listed at this time.
