Retracting and Rotating Sootblowing Device for Soot Prevention and Boiler Maintenance

Effectively control slagging and fouling while achieving boiler efficiency and increase power plant profitability with LPR Global’s High-Performance Soot Blowers. The boiler soot blowing equipment uses high-efficiency venturi nozzles and superheated steam as a cleaning medium to maximize blowing coverage and remove porous soot deposits or buildup. A spray pressure control unit included in the poppet valve guarantees constant pressure and provides convenient adjustment of nozzle pressure. Apart from its excellent cleaning performance, our clients appreciate the low-noise operation and easy maintenance of this soot-blowing equipment.

Soot blower manufacturers must be equipped with experience with a wide range of boiler capacities, fuel types and the types of the power plant, given that soot creation and its carbon particles are a product of incomplete combustion.  We bring the client the best practice from decades of experience with a wide range of boilers and their power plants.  Our soot blowers are currently being used at nuclear, thermal and cogen plants, which use various types of boiler fuels from small to large power generation plants.  The table below exemplifies our recent projects at different power plants.

Wall Blower/Insertable Rotating (IR) for Boiler Furnace Wall | High-Performance Soot Blower WB Type


Superior performance in removing heavy ash deposits in boiler furnace walls, especially in pulverized coal combustion boilers. Nozzle head and nozzles are constructed with a heat-resistant alloy to withstand high-temperature exposure over 1,000°C. To prevent damage from the high temperatures of the combustor, the lance tube is positioned backwards and attached to the outer furnace wall.

Upon starting, the lance tube moves to a forward position and then rotates, with a single motor powering its forward and backward movement. When the blowing starts, a cam operates the poppet valve.

Superheated Steam Soot Blowing for Optimized Biomass Boiler Plant Operations

In biomass power plants, incomplete combustion of solid fuel leads to soot formation. Soot is sticky and causes fouling on internal furnace tubes or heating and reaction surfaces of boilers. As a result, soot buildup in various boiler parts increases flue gas temperature, contributes to reduced boiler thermal efficiency, and incurs high energy costs.


LPR Global offers a variety of biomass boiler soot blowers to remove soot deposits that accumulate on heat transfer surfaces and various parts of the boiler. The equipment specifically uses superheated steam, the most effective soot cleaning medium for keeping different regions, tubes, and fireside surfaces of boilers clean and at peak efficiency.
