Sootbreaker is a free-flowing powder, designed to clean the fire-side of boilers and air heaters whilst in use. It's propellant mechanism ensures distribution throughout the boiler, reaching areas inaccessible to manual cleaning methods. Regular use minimises the need for manual cleaning.
Sootbreaker is a blend of oxidising and neutralising components packed in plastic tubes, which are thrown, unopened, into the combustion chamber once the boiler is up to maximum temperature (at least 350°C).
The boiler is then fired continuously for a minimum of 30 minutes. Highly reactive chemicals, in both gaseous and solid form, are distributed throughout the boiler, causing hard carbon deposits to dry out, oxidise and disintegrate.
