Acoustic cleaning system

What is acoustic cleaning?

Acoustic cleaning is a maintenance method used in processes that produce particulate materials to remove buildup on surfaces. It works by generating powerful sound waves that shake particulates loose from surfaces, reducing the need for manual cleaning.

The operation of an acoustic cleaner is simple - compressed air enters the sound generator, forcing a titanium diaphragm to flex. This flexing causes a pressure fluctuation that is amplified by the horn bell. The resulting pressure wave causes particulate matter to dislodge. The particulate matter then is removed by either gravity or gas flow.

Since there is no contact between the acoustic cleaner and the surfaces of the equipment, acoustic cleaning is a non-invasive, non-destructive method of particulate removal. Compared to traditional methods of particulate removal, acoustic cleaning is by far the most cost-effective and reliable way to keep your process moving without causing structural damage.

Advantages of acoustic cleaners

Compared to traditional cleaning methods, acoustic cleaning offers many advantages, including:

  • Continuous use during normal plant operations significantly reduces unscheduled shutdowns. 

  • Elimination of particulate matter prevents blockages, improving material flow. 

  • Reducing the buildup on heat exchange surfaces results in lower energy usage and increased efficiency. 

  • Improved cleaning causes a reduction in health and safety risks for plant personnel. 

  • Extended equipment life by reducing the need for aggressive cleaning regimes. 

  • Automated acoustic cleaner operation does not increase plant workload.

Most importantly, the use of an acoustic cleaner prevents material buildup in the first place, extending maintenance intervals and reducing the need for expensive manual cleaning.

Traditional methods vs. acoustic cleaning


Mechanical Rapping
  • Destructive

  • Increased maintenance costs and reduced equipment life

  • High energy consumption


Steam Sootblowers
  • Expensive to purchase, install, operate, and maintain

  • Poor cleaning ability

  • Cannot run continuously
