Heat exchanger cleaning

Remove scale and blockages with ease

Heat exchangers used in industry are prone to scaling & blocking which drastically reduces heat transfer & efficiency of the process.
Heat exchanger cleaning using high pressure water jetting is the fastest & most efficient method of cleaning internally & externally. At 1000bar the water jet removes scale & blockages with ease, leaving a polished finished on the inside wall of the tube thus slowing down future scale build up.

Each lance will pass 30-40lpm at 1000bar. The smaller pumps are generally used with a single lance & foot operated control valve to control pressure on/off. The lance could be hand held but Hughes Pumps recommend a 1-LTC which takes the lance out of the operators hands for increased safety.

As pump size/ flow increase as can the quantity of lances, up to the 5 lance bundle blaster for maximum productivity, automation & safety.
