  • Targeted towards problem areas and proper reaction chemistry
  • Increase time between cleaning cycles
  • Safest process to control slag and fouling

How it Works

Conventional fuel treatment programs attempt to control slagging and fouling by applying liquid and/or dry chemicals onto the fuel or randomly into the boiler without regard for ensuring proper chemical reactions and the avoidance of interfering chemical reactions. This frequently leads to increased slag and fouling or no improvement in operating life. By failing to address the problem areas or the chemistry issues directly, these non-specific programs rarely meet customer performance expectations.

Our Approach

Our process begins with the development of a TIFI Bio™ program for each unique boiler application and circumstance. Computation fluid dynamics modeling is employed as required to develop a program for each individual application’s circumstances.

One or more chemicals are either applied to the fuel, or injected into the furnace to target the problem areas and the correct chemical reactions. Unlike other chemical treatment programs, TIFI Bio has shown no adverse impact on overall unit operations.

TIFI Bio offers significant operating cleanliness and lower corrosion advantages while firing a greater variety of biomass waste fuels, including:

  • Yard WasteBiomassPlant3
  • Demo Waste
  • Logging & Mill Residue
  • Wood Chips
  • Switch Grass
  • Forest Residue
