Soot blower installed for coal fired boiler


Total installed capacity of Shandong Zouxian Power Plant is 2400MW. Phase III project is 2*600MW unit. 5# boiler is put into operation on 17 Jan, 1997. 6# is put into operation on 7 Nov, 1997. The boiler is designed by Poster Wheeler company in US. It is subcritical, natural circulation, single drum, coal fired 2020tph boiler. 100 sets of soot blower is installed for each boiler.

4 soot blowers are installed for 2 air preheaters. Flue gas inlet and outlet of each APH is installed with one soot blower. Steam supply is from super heater outlet pipe. Steam design teperature is 538℃, design pressure is 16Mpa. Steam is supplied to APH sootblower after pressure reduction.

For the water cooled wall of furnace, 48 sets of IR-30 rotary soot blowers are installed. From furnace arch (Elevation 42975mm) to convective flue gas pass (Elevation 42500mm), there are 44 sets of IK-545 long retractable soot blower. At convective flue gas pass (Elevation 38500mm), there are 4 sets of IK-525 retractable soot blower. Steam supply is from platen superheater outlet pipe. Steam at 440℃, 16Mpa is reduced to 4.14Mpa and supplied to main pipe of soot blowing system.

Charateristics of soot blower

To keep heating surface clean, improve heat transfer efficiency, reduce exhaust gas temperature, various soot blowers are developed. Steam soot blower is the first generation, and then sonic horn and shock wave soot blower is also utilized. In 1971, Huangtai power plant in Shandong province installed LRSB for 2# boiler. In 1972, Laiwu power plant installed soot blower for the rotary air preheater. In 1985, 148 sets of soot blower were installed for the heating surface of 1# subcritical boiler. In the following days, 6 boilers of Zouxian power plant adopt steam soot blower.
