Explosive slag removal & boiler cleaning requires experts.
"Use of explosives for boiler deslagging gains acceptance," reported by Power Magazine. This unconventional technique for removing slag from solid-fuel-fired boilers, used for more than five decades, has exploded in popularity. But the risks are very real: extensive damage at several jobs confirms that all blasters are not created equal. As the technique's acceptance has grown, so has the number of contractors entering the field. Norm Harty, N.B. Harty General Contractor Inc, widely recognized as the technology's pioneer, says he spent his first 17 years in the business without a competitor.
When searching for an explosive cleaning company, you want a company that has a proven record. At N.B. Harty, we have a proven record of knowledge, experience, safety and dependability. That's why we are the world's number one company in this field.
Kenneth Bridegroom, who had the idea of explosives, said that slag removal is a constant battle for power plants. Conventional weapons such as picks, jackhammers and hydro-blasting are labor intensive, require a large amount of downtime and may not dislodge severe deposits. Using explosives for boiler deslagging was introduced and engineered by Norm Harty in 1964. Norm Harty and his staff have built this procedure into the state-of-the-art technique it is today.
