Tube Bundle Cleaning System Enhances Safety

June 18, 2014
NLB announces Saflex 2001 tube bundle cleaning system.

The Saflex 2001 tube bundle cleaning system from NLB Corp. is a lightweight, portable accessory with options to enhance operator safety. The Saflex 2001 lets an operator clean two tubes at once without exposure to water jets blasting out hard deposits at up to 20,000 psi (1,400 bar).  

After set-up, the operator positions the two flex lances at the tube openings — manually or using a hands-free option. The hands-free X-Y positioner indexes the lances in and out of the tubes and wireless remote controls to let the operator stand well clear.  NLB also provides an optional hose reel, Saflex-HR, to reduce the potential for tripping by managing the hoses that feed high-pressure water to the flex lances.

The Saflex 2001 is the latest tube bundle cleaning system from NLB, joining the semi-automated Saflex 3000, which cleans three tubes at once, and the fully-automated ATL-5000, which cleans five tubes at once.
