Things we need to know:

  • Size (OD and ID of the tube.
  • Material of the tube.
  • Type of deposit.
  • Length of the tube.
  • The number of tubes needed cleaning.
  • Type of Boiler (Water tube or Fire tube).

Size of Machine Required

 Select the most powerful boiler tube cleaning machines for the scale and tube size. But then, if you are only cleaning light soot from tubes no bigger than 2.1/2″OD, the PTC-75 would be more than adequate. To clarify, the scale encountered is a major factor for brush material. When cleaning hard calcium deposits, the brush design and material become critical. Water treatment systems connected to feed water help. Especially in areas of high mineral content.

Powermaster Industrial tube cleaners are compact and maneuverable. Used to clean straight and curved tubes. In heat exchangers, boilers, condensers and other tubular apparatus. The attachments remove the deposits using a rotational force from the drive unit. The flexible shaft allows easy access to the tube sheet. While in operation, water flushes out deposits from the tube. The ID of the tube determines brush size selection. The brush must be slightly smaller than the ID, especially to vibrate within the tube while cleaning.

Flexible Shafts for Models TC

The Flexible Shaft transmits constant torque/power from the motor unit to the tool. These shafts run dry at all times. The Inner Core is a double wound in opposing layers with high tensile-spring steel wires. Made for absolute vibration-free performance and continuous duty. The outer casing is flexible and made out of galvanized steel strips. It provides a special steel anti-friction lining for the entire length.

So, besides boilers, tube cleaning machines will clean any tubular apparatus. Despite the tube size, as long as we know the type of deposit, we can specifically choose the correct cleaning accessories. To conclude, know your tube size, type of deposit material, and length. Consider how close you can get the drive unit to the pressure vessel. This will determine the length of the shaft required.
