Cement Plant Pre-Heater Fan Acoustic Cleaning With Sonic Horns
Silos, however, are not the only part of a cement plant where material build-up can be a problem and we find ourselves servicing an increasing number of enquiries for the cleaning of other plant elements such as pre-heater ID fans.
Particulate build-up on the blades can cause a pre-heater fan to go out of balance and if this happens during production, the whole upstream plant has to be closed down, the fan manually cleaned and then the whole plant gradually restarted. Such unscheduled downtime is very expensive. Typically, the build-up is an extremely hard, brick-like substance which can break off during operation and cause serious imbalance and possibly damage to the fan casing.
