What is Exhaust Stack Cleaning?
The process of cleansing of the interior surfaces of exhaust stacks and duct collectors free of soot, dust and debris.
Why & When is Exhaust Stack Cleaning Needed?
For example, Exhaust stack cleaning is used as a preventive measure. Many fires have been started due to the mass amount of soot build-up combined with high amounts of heat inside the duct collectors. Regular inspection and cleaning is obligatory to the safety of personnel as well as the longevity of the ships mechanics.
Another example is these stacks are prone to cracking, giving the mass amounts off heat being generated within the modules. Thus this cleaning is necessary in the inspection for internal cracks and before hot work can take place for repairs if there be any found discrepancies.
