Waste Incineration Plants

Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH offers manual and semi-automated cleaning options

The JetMaster from mycon GmbH is environmentally friendly and saves resources. The water consumption is extremely low with 0.20 – 1.00l clear water per minute. JetMaster works without any additional chemicals. Thus, the amount of wastewater is extremely reduced compared to other aqueous cleaning methods and is only polluted by the mostly harmless soiling of the surfaces in this area. During the examination of the air-cooled condenser in the plant of a customer, with surprising results. The performance of the tested air-cooled condenser drops between 2 cleanings every 5 months (beginning of April and end of August) to up to 57% of the nominal performance due to contamination. This leads to a 5.6% reduction in waste incineration and a 7.9% reduction in electricity production in these 5 months. If, on the other hand, the air-cooled condenser is cleaned on demand, it’s performance does not fall below 95%, which means that the slumps in production can largely be avoided.

Cleaning of cooling towers

The pipes in the cooling tower were temporarily supplied with lime-containing water. As a result, a hard limestone armour had developed around the pipes.

The JetMaster combination system successfully cleaned the outer pipe surfaces.

The zinc coating – which had been destroyed by chemical cleaning – is not attacked by JetMaster.

The entire JetMaster combination system (incl. JetPower) is used for cleaning surfaces with limescale residues.
