Automated Air Heater Technology MPW provides necessary equipment and trained personnel to restore your air preheater to optimal efficiencies.

MPW’s air heater cleaning service provides cutting-edge technology to ensure air heater baskets are cleaned, resulting in improved heat transfer, increased plant efficiency and reduced downtime. MPW’s air heater tooling provides automated technology for a consistent cleaning of air heater baskets, by using computer logic and software to calculate run times with the ultimate goal of reducing pressure differentials across the surface area being cleaned. This allows for detailed monitoring of the cleaning process, in addition to improved safety through reduced personnel exposure.

MPW’s electric-driven and VFD-controlled approach, combined with an automated track-driven design, allows for a constant basket speed in front of the cleaning head as the diameter of the cleaning pattern changes. MPW’s versatile air heater tooling employs multiple cleaning heads with scalable cleaning nozzles to adjust for pressure and flow to meet customer-specific requirements.
