For operators running on heavy fuel oil (HFO), ensuring the nozzle ring performs optimally poses a major challenge, as the nozzle ring is prone to collecting residues from burning HFO.
Regular washing becomes the immediate and most practical solution to keep the residues in check.
Regular washing however comes at a cost. Significant operational downtimes and loss of productivity. The below whitepaper is a compilation of case studies showing how operators can maximize uptime, increase productivity and profitability by replacing the standard nozzle ring with ABB's coated nozzle ring.
