The cost effective add-on or alternative
to all known methods of cleaning boiler and heat exchanger tubes exposed to fly ash deposits.

Third generation cleaning technology

“I have been developing innovative boiler cleaning systems since 2001. At Explotechnik we now developed the 3rd generation: the patented Power Wave Generators (PWG). With this, we believe to have the best and most cost-effective add-on or alternative for soot blowers, water cannons, knockers or different detonation based cleaning methods on the market. Powerful, effective and easily maintainable.”

Hans Rüegg

 

Why Explotechnik

We deliver the most attractive boiler cleaning results: we increase efficiency, reduce maintenance and ­­­decrease CO2 emissions.

Problem solving

Our patented technology optimizes the boiler cleaning process through continuous 3 dimensional dry cleaning.

 

Power

Our technology is based on a supersonic power wave that is generated by deflagrating propane gas and compressed air in the Power Wave Generator.

 

Proven

Boiler cleaning technologies of the 1st and 2nd generation, originally developed by Hans Rüegg, have proven their effectiveness since 2001. Our new 3rd generation technology delivers the most attractive results.

 

Professionals

Engineering education skills with combined > 100 years of industry experience well versed in international markets.

 

Continuous innovation

Innovation is at the core of what we do.
Hans Rüegg has successfully been developing boiler cleaning technologies based on gas explosion since 2001.
With the establishment of Explotechnik in 2016 and with new technology patents (3rd Generation), we now bring the latest automated boiler cleaning technology, the POWER WAVE GENERATOR to the market.
