Explosive De-Slagging

Explosive Clean TubesExplosive Dirty Tubes

Our exclusive de-slagging technology allows for online or offline de-slagging regardless of internal boiler temperatures. Charges are placed through burner ports, view ports, and doors. When detonated, the charges clean the slagged over areas in a 360° radius. The science behind the explosive detonations enables the slag to be blown off the tubes safely and effectively—all without causing collateral damage to the tubes or refractory.

Used in conjunction with our vacuum trucks and high-pressure water blasting equipment, National Vacuum provides “one-stop shopping” for total outage cleaning.
