Boiler Cleaning Equipment

Hawk has a range of boiler cleaning equipment including high pressure washers and accessories.

In the video clip, a Hawk 3/27-500 High Pressure Washer is being used by the operator to remove the deposits that have built up over time in the tubes of this boiler system.

By cleaning the tubes with a high pressure washer, production and heat transfer efficiency can be maintained.

Why it is necessary to clean boiler tubes and pipes?

Tubes are typically smaller in diameter than pipes. Tubes are usually grouped together for the purpose of transferring heat. Examples of this type of equipment are Boilers, Heat Exchangers, Fin Fans, Condensers, Steam Generators and other piping systems.

The medium that is being heated causes deposits to be made on the inside of the tubes and this deposit build up (e.g. soot, scale) “thickens” the inside wall of the tube. This causes a number of problems: the diameter of the tube is made smaller so less of the medium travels down the pipe decreasing efficiency; “thicker” walls reduces heat transfer to the medium so that desired temperatures are not reached; and deposit build up can eventually cause blockages.

By cleaning the tubes with a high pressure washer, production and heat transfer efficiency can be maintained. Special nozzles can be fitted to a length of  hose. These nozzles, by jetting water backwards, pull the hose forward and feeds it through the tube, cleaning as it goes.
