ATD-Target Blaster

The patent-pending ATD-Target Blaster is a high-pressure nozzle made of heat and chemical resistant steel. It can be installed in the critical area during the production process and remains in position, ready to perform its function.

The length, and therefore the insertion depth, of the Target Blaster, as well as the type of the discharge openings, are adapted in order to fully meet efficiency and safety requirements for the application. Even a straight discharge is possible by offering a 100% safe locking of the ATD-Tube during blasting.

Outside the plant, access to the ATD-Target Blaster is via a high-capacity thread. It is designed and engineered to ensure easy functionality and fully strengthened to reliably handle the existing traverse forces of the activated ATD-Tubes. Before and after use, the thread is protected and closed by a plug.

When ready for action, the ATD-Pressure Gas Tube is screwed to the ATD-Target Blaster by hand.

The existing installations in the cement industry are mainly in the critical areas of the kiln inlet chute and close to the entry of secondary fuel components, such as the tyre chute.

The benefits of installing the ATD-Target Blaster:

  • 100% safe locking during blasting by using the patent-pending ATD-Locking System ( EP2683976).
  • 4- 2-way and 80/20% discharge and straight shot for all type of ATD-Pressure Gas Tubes.
  • Heat- and chemical-resistant material for the nozzle is possible (approx. up to 1100°C/1900°F).
  • Fast access to the area of operation.
  • Fast reaction time on build-up formation.
  • The operators are not directly exposed to the heat and to the hot materiel, as drilling and poking the insertion hole is unnecessary.
  • The ATD-Pressure Gas Tubes are not in direct contact with the heat; therefore, the ATD-Target Blaster offers a tremendous increase in safety and lifetime for the ATD-Tubes.
  • The blasting nozzle can be easily removed for inspection.
