Fluidised Bed Cleaning Furnaces
Fluidised bed cleaning is considered best available technology for most applications of thermal cleaning. Excellent temperature uniformity and rapid heat transfer permits cleaning of complex critical hardware with minimal risk of distortion or metallurgical damage. Also, the average cleaning cycle is an order of magnitude shorter than ovens due to the superior heat transfer characteristics of the fluid bed.
Unlike ovens, complete conversion of carbon to carbon dioxide minimizes post cleaning operations and possible product contamination. In addition, the dynamic nature of a fluidised bed allows complex hardware to be cleaned without disassembly.
