The PrimaSound Acoustic Cleaner will Solve your Problems.

Acoustic Cleaners are low frequency, high powered horns designed as a highly effective, economical means of preventing build-up in industrial intake and exhaust systems / applications. Acoustic Cleaners are pneumatically operated horns that produce low frequency, high energy sound waves.
The sound waves are produced when compressed air enters the sound generator and forces the only moving part, a diaphragm, to flex.
The flexing action of the diaphragm generates sound waves that are amplified by the acoustic cleaner's bell.
The resulting sound waves cause particulate deposits to resonate and dislodge from the surfaces to which the particulate deposits have bonded. Once dislodged, the particulate deposits are then removed by gravity and/or gas flow, as micro particles.
The advantages of cleaning with the PrimaSound Acoustic Cleaners over conventional cleaning methods are many, however the basic concept is to eliminate the built up of carbon deposits during the operational/service cycle. Performing so, the down time for cleaning is eliminated, together with the washings collection and disposal difficulties too.
The Acoustic Cleaners minimize the Corrosion of Washed Metals from the corrosive action of the sulphuric acid created by the water.

The Acoustic Cleaners are eliminating the use of steam soot blowers.

The Acoustic Cleaners are Continuously Clean:

  • The Boiler Tubes
  • The Exhaust Gas Boiler Heating Element
  • The Exhaust Gas Piping up to the Funnel Top

with no more powdery deposits, burning remainders and/or sludge’s.

By keeping CONTINUOUSLY clean the exhaust gas piping up to the funnel’s top the
Acoustic Cleaners Stop the Combustion Residues and the Ash-Flakes, with results to have:

  • Clean Poop deck and clean Environment
  • Reduced Risk for Fires on Mooring Ropes

By using Acoustic Cleaners also have:

  • Clean and free flow (Continuously) of forced gases.
  • Minimum Back Pressure
  • Minimum risk of Stack Fires
  • Reduced accumulated water washings after EGE or A/B cleaning

THE BOTTOM LINE IS MAXIMUM OPERATING EFFICIENCY AND LOWER OPERATING COSTS AS REGARDS INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES, AUX. BOILERS, EGE etc..

Installing PrimaSound Acoustic Cleaners to your intake and exhaust machinery systems simply the advantages are as follows:

  • Lower maintenance cost
  • Lower operational cost
  • No structural damage
  • No mechanical wear on equipment surfaces
  • No corrosion or blockage
  • Cleaning of inaccessible parts
  • Continuous plant operation
  • Cleaner poop decks and seas
  • Eliminated risk for funnel and poop deck fires
  • Reduction of accumulated washings and chemicals
  • Low initial investment
  • Easy installation

INSTALLATIONS

a)    Air Cooler M/E
Keep it clean and functional, without any chemical cleaning need. Stabilizes the air intake pressure and maintains both sides (air-sea) always clean and operational.

b)    Ex. Gas Boiler / Economizer & Main-Aux. Boilers
Eliminate the build-up of carbon deposits on the tubes surface and increases the heat transfer. In the meantime prevents from acid formation deposits due to the corrosive attack of the sulfuric acid created using water for cleaning, minimizing the need for wash down to much longer intervals and eliminates the need for steam or air soot blowing with the known results at the funnel surrounding areas (decks – sterns – etc.) always clean.

The overall gain is based in the achievement of lessening the downtime for cleaning the intake and exhaust systems, while at the same time ensuring a linear performance and OPEX, avoiding the low performance picks in between cleaning periods.
In other words, the down time for cleaning and maintenance can easily be adjusted in line with the Classification Surveys, where the planning time allows for better organization and convenient execution and not of course after every long voyage, where the place for disposals and time allowed might not be convenient.

Additional gain can be realized for installations in ships performing coastal trades spending considerable time in port and anchorage, where the machineries are operated in low set ups resulting to heavy formation deposits in the exhaust and intake systems otherwise and carrying also the risk for air pollution and funnel sparks at ports and anchorages.
