ARW-1 Tube Cleaning Machine

Description And Operation

The SOS model ARW-1 in an air powered rotary motion with simultaneous water flush tube cleaning machine suitable for cleaning tubes from 6.4mm to 400mm I.D.’s

There is a choice of two Air Motors; the 4AM delivers up to 1.3 Kilowatts and the 6AM delivers up to 3.0 Kilowatts. Speed may be varied 300 to 3000 rpm with a corresponding variation in torque.

This machine has a combination air filter, pressure regulator and air lubricator fitted to the air inlet side of the machine.

Filtered air at supply pressure is fed to the foot controller via quick couplers and upon operation the foot control supplier air to a pilot operated water valve and the air motor supply valve.

The air powered motor drives a flexible shaft and cleaning head which is fed through the tubes by the operator. Water is supplied to the cleaning head through the flexible shaft and washes forward the debris removed by the cleaning tool.

The machine has a tool storage box for the foot control and the tube cleaning tools. Root nuts are fitted in the base so that the machine can be trolley mounted if so desired.

Safety & Special Features

  • Explosion proof air motor and controls completely eliminate electrical hazards.

  • All supply and control lines utilise quick couplers.

  • Control lines are safety yellow and give excellent performance in terms of flexibility, resilience and kink resistance. They exceed in all respects the requirements of Australian Standard AS2554-class B

  • They are robust, compact and will fit through most boiler man hole doors.

  • Air filter, regulator and lubricator unit is fitted to the machine as standard. Filter and lubricator have spring return drain valves.

  • Filtered supply air is utilised to control the operation of the water valve and motor supply valve, thus ensuring that these valves will open when the motor is operating on its lowest torque setting (ie air pressure to motor 140kPa (20psi)).

  • Air pressure regulator allows torque to be varied over full range of operating pressure.

  • Full bore compression fittings and air lines ensure that maximum power is obtainable.

  • The machine has a tool storage box for the foot control and the tube cleaning tools. Root nuts are fitted in the base so that the machine can be trolley mounted if so desired.

  • The machine is designed so that any one item can be replaced in approximately 10 minutes.
