Air Blowing

The process of Air Blowing is used for both the cleaning and drying of process systems and pipe work. At EnerMech our team of specialists’ carryout this post construction activity for intervention to ensure that a system is free of debris, before a decompression air blow can take place.

A detailed engineering review is undertaken to determine the optimum flow rate to achieve the desired cleanliness result, and ensure an operational flow rate is exceeded by a factor of 150%.

Once the system is pressurized to a pre-determined pressure, the system is immediately decompressed to the right atmosphere using either a rupture disk or alternatively a fast action full bore valve system. This is done through a noise reducing receiver, which acts as a filter for any debris. The decompression process continues until the required cleanliness levels have been achieved.

The decompression process continues until the required cleanliness levels have been achieved, with follow on air blowing undertaken as necessary to achieve the correct dryness.
