Internal Pipe Cleaning, Three Easy Ways
Internal pipe surface preparation is now easier, faster, and more economical with the use of Clemco’s family of pipe cleaning tools. These pipe tools help to get the job done faster, enhancing productivity and saving money in the process. Clemco tools are engineered for a wide range of pipe internal diameters and most abrasives. Each tool handles a specific pipe internal diameter range through the use of various centering devices. Clemco’s pipe cleaning tools are designed as the best method to remove rust, old paint, and any other contaminant. Through highly powered abrasive impact, precise surface profiles can be obtained which will ensure proper adhesion for long life coatings. Standard abrasive blast machines are used in conjunction with all pipe cleaning tools.
The hollo-blast is constructed, in part, of high-grade tungsten carbide and engineered to provide hours of productive work. Various tungsten carbide nozzle sizes are available to comply with the range of pipe diameters. Any standard blasting abrasive may be used with the exception of aluminum oxide and silicon carbide. Maximum abrasive size is 16 mesh on Spin-Blast, 20 mesh on Hollo-Blast, and 30 mesh on Hollo-Blast Junior.
Pipe cleaning tools replace conventional blast nozzles at the end of the hose and are powered by compressed air. Abrasive is accelerated and propelled through specially designed nozzles. The end result is high velocity and hard impact on the surface that will remove the most stubborn materials. Pipe and tubing ranging in size from ¾” to 36” may be blast cleaned by the assortment of pipe cleaning tools fitted with various centering devices. The Spin-Blast tool accommodates inner diameters from 8” to 36” with its two centering carriages. The Hollo-Blast tool will clean 2” l.D. by itself and extends up to 12” I.D. when either of its two centering devices are attached. To handle smaller diameters, the Hollo-Blast Junior cleans ¾” to 2” l.D., which requires the use of four centering collars to cover the size range.
Clemco pipe cleaning tools are designed for manual travel through pipe. Before blasting, tools are pushed through pipe to the opposite end. When the blast machine is turned on the operator pulls the tool through pipe at a speed necessary to obtain desired degree of cleaning.
