Customized solutions for the global pulp and paper industry are addressed by our sales office in Canada. An additional manufacturing facility in Brazil services the pulp and paper industry in Brazil.
Products and services include a full range of boiler cleaning devices including steam or air operated sootblowers for all areas of the boiler as well as more advanced cleaning devices such as water cannons, multi media and multi mode sootblowers. Our complete cleaning solutions include the use of direct feedback and sensor controlled intelligent sootblowing (ISB) systems where cleaning devices are being actuated only when and where needed. Controls for the cleaning devices are designed and manufactured to meet the specific requirements of the boiler installation and are integrated into the boiler control system.
Clyde Bergemann offers a wide range of engineering and site support services including on-site assessments and walk-downs. These services allow us to tailor boiler cleaning solutions that improve boiler efficiency by increasing availability and production while lowering operating costs for our customers.
Clyde Bergemann Inc. is a member of Clyde Bergemann Power Group, the leader in supplying boiler cleaning and ash handling solutions worldwide. The Clyde Bergemann Power Group has factories and representative offices in sixteen countries supplying and supporting vital equipment and systems for improving boiler performance in various industries worldwide.
Clyde Bergemann has become the world leader in on-line boiler cleaning equipment by integrating and enhancing boiler cleaning technologies from around the world. Our product lines combine the experience and knowledge developed over the last 100 years by various independent sootblower brands such as Clyde, Bergemann, Copes Vulcan and Forest. Each of these independent companies developed expertise in the very specialized field of on-line boiler cleaning. All this experience has been combined to form the Boiler Efficiency Division of the CBPG to provide boiler operators and manufacturers with optimum solutions for improving boiler efficiencies.
Clyde Bergemann, Inc., the US operation of Clyde Bergemann, was established in 1988 as Bergemann USA, Inc. by Bergemann GmbH, a subsidiary of Deutsche Babcock (later Babcock Power), both German based. Bergemann GmbH - a specialist in cleaning systems for boilers - had been in the boiler cleaning business for several decades.
In 1996 Clyde Blowers PLC of Glasgow/Scotland, which was active in the same market segment, acquired the Bergemann Group and the company was renamed Clyde Bergemann, Inc. Clyde Blowers had been in the boiler cleaning business for many years. In the 1990s the product line was extended into the field of ash handling equipment.
In 1997 Clyde Bergemann Inc. acquired Copes-Vulcan, Inc.'s sootblower product line, a business whose roots date back to 1903 and whose equipment is installed in most of the North American power plants.
Early in 2000 additional materials handling activities were incorporated in the Clyde Bergemann Boiler Efficiency Division. Thus, the Clyde Bergemann Power Group was formed with 16 subsidiaries worldwide and activities in the following market segments:

Model VS - Furnace Wall Blowers
The VS is designed specifically for cleaning slag from furnace walls. It does this by directing a high pressure cleaning medium (steam or air) through one opposing nozzle onto the furnace wall. The screw tube delivers the nozzle into the furnace and then rotates the nozzles. This provides two cleaning sweeps affectivity covering 100% of the target area.
Membrane Sensors are very cost effecitive heat flux sensors. They are installed in the membrane of the furnace water wall. Membrane sensors only have two thermocouple embedded instead of four thermocouples for conventional tube heat flux sensors. Since membrane sensors are installed on the membrane rather than in the waterwall tube, they are less effective for the thermal impact measurement caused by water jet. Membrane sensors are the best candidate ...
