Sonic Soot Blowing encompasses the realm of sound transmission through particulate and solids. It is best described by the creation of rapid pressure fluctuations. These pressure fluctuations are transmitted into the particulate or "bonded" dry material causing the solid particles to resonate and dislodge from the surface they are deposited on or bonded to, without causing any structural damage to the plant. Once dislodged, the materials fall, either due to gravity or are carried away by the gas or air stream within the process.

The powerful sound waves are produced when the short bursts of standard plant compressed air enters the sonic soot blower’s wave generator and forces the only moving part, an aerospace grade titanium diaphragm to flex creating the powerful "base" sound wave. This "base" tone is then transmitted by a range of different horn sections into selected fundamental frequencies between 60 - 350Hz in our Quattrosonics Sonic Soot Blower range.  A periodic "sounding" typically 5 to 10 seconds every 2 - 30 minutes is all that is required.
