To significantly improve cleaning of extremely small exchanger and heater tubes (10-20mm). ADI introduced a combination of mechanical and water jet cleaning that prevents the cleaning head from being pushed out of tubes by hydraulic water forces. A patent pending pneumatically driven unit that enables the operator to drive and rotate rigid lances with diameters down to ¼”
(6mm) can clean fully plugged tubes up to 50ft long without the risk of bending the rigid lances. This system replaces conventional cleaning processes that burn plastic scale and accelerates cleaning of tubes fully plugged by calcium carbonate or bauxite. The Aqua Lancer™ system provides a fully enclosed track containing a lance support system that retracts as the drive unit rotates rigid lances in and out.
