Injection of relatively small amounts of water into the air or steam blowing medium of long retractable sootblowers can result in many benefits in initial cost, operational cost, and functional operation of sootblower systems. This paper explores the possibilities that this method of sootblowing presents, and includes experimental data on the operation of test systems. Thermal shock tests have been performed on superheater and waterwall tubes, and boiler tube samples have been analyzed after long term operation with combined air and water mist sootblowing.
