Intelligent Sootblowing Workshop Draws
Tour looks at new technology in Luminant's Martin Lake Plant.
Nearly 50 participants representing 13 utilities
were on hand for EPRI's Seventh Intelligent Sootblowing
Workshop, held May 20-21 in Shreveport, Louisiana.
All of the major ISB technologies were discussed,
including traditional sootblowers, water cannons,
impulse cleaning, acoustic cleaning, and even coatings
which inhibit ash accumulation. Presentations described
ISB demonstrations in all of these areas. The highlight
of the workshop was the tour of Luminant's Martin
Lake Plant to see the installation of the most recent
Clyde-Bergemann ISB technology. A CD will be published
containing all of the presentations. For more information,
