Results from Gruvön

The first results from installing HISS soot blowing technology at BillerudKorsnäs in Gruvön, Sweden in April 2016 has arrived. Steam consumption for soot blowing has been reduced by 30 % and the number of soot blower starts has been increased by 25 %, allowing for a load increase of 10 %, from 101 TDS/h at an average to 111 TDS/h, thanks to more efficient cleaning of the heat transfer surfaces.
