New Saflex(TM) 2001 Simplifies Tube Bundle Cleaning
Press release date: April 24, 2014
WIXOM, MICH... The new Saflex™ 2001 tube bundle cleaning system from NLB Corp. is a lightweight, portable accessory that is more productive than manual water jetting and has options to enhance operator safety.
The Saflex 2001 lets an operator clean two tubes at the same time without exposure to the water jets, which blast out hard deposits at up to 20,000 psi (1,400 bar). After the simple set-up, the operator positions the two flex lances at the tube openings — manually, or with hands-free options — and watches them go to work.
The hands-free options are an X-Y positioner that indexes the lances in and out of the tubes and wireless remote controls to let the operator stand well clear. NLB can also provide an optional hose reel, Saflex-HR, that reduces the potential for tripping by managing the hoses that feed high-pressure water to the flex lances.
The Saflex 2001 is the latest tube bundle cleaning system from NLB, joining the semi-automated Saflex 3000, which cleans three tubes at once, and the fully-automated ATL-5000, which cleans five tubes at once.
NLB Corp. (www.nlbcorp.com), a global leader in high-pressure and ultra-high pressure water jet systems, manufactures a full line of quality water jetting pump units and accessories for contractor and industrial uses. Applications include tube bundle cleaning, tank cleaning, tube and pipe cleaning, product removal, surface preparation, drill pipe cleaning, pavement marking and rubber removal, concrete hydrodemolition, concrete and pipe cutting, and more.
