Steam Blowing

Rust, dirt, mill scale, and construction debris present before startup in boilers, turbines, pipelines, superheaters, and other equipment are the number one cause of downtime for new systems. Steam blowing is an effective and safe method for ensuring your systems are free of contaminants before startup. High velocity steam is blown through the systems at engineered velocities and pressures and then vented to atmosphere via temporary piping just before a critical component like a steam turbine.

Steam blowing is a critical activity during the commissioning of a new steam system. Any steam system feeding a steam turbine must be steam blown to remove debris that would damage the steam turbine blades. Steam blowing is also employed to clean process steam lines and utility steam systems.
