Cleaning Boiler Tubes

Cleaning boiler tubes is a laborious job when done by hand with brushes and rods. Using boiler tube cleaning systems makes the task much easier on the operator and is completed in a shorter time. First, you need to know the type of deposit on the inside of the tube. This will determine the type of accessories you will need and the type of brush needed to remove the deposit in the most economical way.

Brushes

Most fire tube boilers if cleaned regularly will usually only need nylon brushes to remove the soot bringing the tubes back to their original cleanliness. The brushes need to run loose on the ID of the tube. So, if the tube ID is 1.7/8" then a brush of 1.3/4" is ideal. It's the rotation and the vibration of the brush in the tube which removes the deposits. The machine supplies water to the flexible shaft from the tool end. This then flushes away all debris out of the tube. Water only runs when the foot pedal is depressed. For more stubborn deposits use either the Double Spiral brush or Stainless Steel brushes.  In water tube boilers, especially where the local feed water is either not treated or has high calcium or other mineral content.  For large copper tubes in Stills and evaporators use either Nylon or Brass brushes.
