The combustion of carbon in industrial boilers is often accompanied by the formation of molten deposits on the walls of the combustion chamber and of deposits in the convection stacks. These deposit reduce the performance and the availability of the boiler. The existence of high temperatures and the accumulation of deposits, which hinder the passage of fumes, accelerate clogging. This leads to the melting of deposits and the subsidence of large masses, which can damage ash removal equipment and heat exchangers.

In this research, we have aimed to favour the practical approach, and that is why we will tackle the problem of clogging of various types of burners through the actual experience of industrial boiler users. The various factors that contribute to clogging have been specified and evaluated and practical methods of reducing them have been studied. .
