Tube Bundle Cleaning Is Automated And Self-Contained
The system has five rigid lances, each with a specially-designed nozzle to deliver high-pressure water (up to 20,000 psi, or 1,400 bar) to clear the tubes of hardened debris. A powerful hydraulic drive inserts the five lances at a rate of 39" (1m) per second, then withdraws them so they can be positioned to clean the next five tubes. All movements (in/out, up/down and left/right) are controlled by the operator from a convenient overhead station, which provides excellent visibility at a safe distance from the action. The operator can even rotate the bundles with the optional bundle roller control package.
