Explosive slag removal & boiler cleaning requires experts.
As reported by Power Magazine, (the)"Use of explosives for boiler deslagging gains acceptance. 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 plants confirms that all blasters are not created equal. As the technique's acceptance has grown, so has the number of contractors entering the field. Norman Harty, owner of N.B. Harty General Contractor Inc, and widely recognized as the technology's pioneer, says he spent his first 17 years in the business without a competitor.”

Kenneth Bridegroom, the first person to voice the idea of using high explosives to displace slag deposits, said that slag removal is a constant battle for power plants. Conventional methods 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 Norman Harty, and he and his staff have built this procedure into the state-of-the-art technique it is today.
