SCR & CO Catalyst Cleaning
Catalyst are essential for running a clean operation at combined cycle plants. However, through general operations SCR and CO Catalyst get dirty and decrease the efficiency of the plant. Most fouling consists of dirt, dust, and insulation.
Precision Iceblast Corporation provides a successful technique of removing this fouling from Catalysts. Catalyst are cleaned with a combination of low pressure air (90 psi) and high volume low pressure vacuuming. The upstream and downstream faces are vacuumed first to remove any debris. The downstream face is air lanced blowing upstream. Air lancing the downstream face allows any lodged debris to work its way out to of the upstream side of the Catalyst. Once air lancing is completed the upstream face is vacuumed to remove any final debris that was forced out from the air lancing.
