Pneumatic Tube Cleaning System Is Available in Three Configurations

HVAC  Boilers  Heat Exchangers  Condensers  Chillers

Long Island City, New York USA->When an air-powered tube cleaning system is the tool of choice, Thomas C. Wilson, Inc. offers three pneumatic tube cleaning solutions:

- Wils-Away 3000: 1 1/2-HP Portable Pneumatic Tube Cleaning System (Heat Exchangers, Condensers and other small diameter pressure vessels)

- Wils-Away 4000: 4-HP Dolly Mounted Pneumatic Tube Cleaning System (Heat Exchangers, Condensers and other small diameter pressure vessels)

- Wils-Away 4500: 4-HP Dolly Mounted Pneumatic Tube Cleaning System (Boilers and other large diameter pressure vessels)

Each Wils-Away Pneumatic comes in a complete kit that includes:

- A powerful and durable Wils-Away pneumatic Drive Unit

- A Wils-Away Flexible Shaft & Casing

- 6 Spiral Brushes or a Wilson Expanding Brush and Refill Set

- Foot pedal for hands-free On/Off and Forward/Reverse operation

Wils-Away Pneumatic Tube Cleaning Systems offer several unique features and benefits:

- Both forward and reverse drive for cleaning enhanced tubes and tubes in surface condensers (Editor's Note: No other pneumatic unit has this capability!)

- When access to a pressure vessel is limited, the Wils-Away 3000 Compact Pneumatic Tube Cleaning System is lightweight (just 32 pounds) and maneuverable (just 12 inches high and 23 inches long)

- 500 to 3000 rpm variable speed motor cleans tubes fast and thoroughly

- A built in Tool Box keeps accessories and tools close at hand

- Can be run wet (to clean heat exchangers, condensers and water tube boilers) or dry (when cleaning fire tube boilers and water heaters)

- Water flushing aids cleaning action-when water is clear, tube is clean

- Wide selection of cleaning heads including the unique Wilson Expanding Brush

- Wils-Away Shafts & Casings are available in nylon, Teflon, steel or rubber-coated steel

- Air activated Foot Pedal ensure operator safety-Optional Foot Pedal offers remote Forward/Reverse control

For many tube cleaning applications, an electric-powered tube cleaning unit is not appropriate:

- Compressed air is more readily available than electricity

- Explosive or combustible materials prohibit the use of electric drive units because of the fear of sparks

- The tubes to be cleaned may have water or other fluids in them, so an electric drive unit presents unnecessary risks

In addition, Wils-Away Pneumatic Tube Cleaning Systems are very attractively priced! The cost of a Wils-Away kit is $100 to $200 less than the cost of a drive unit and similar accessories from any competing vendor. Thomas C. Wilson, Inc. also offers a complete line of electric tube cleaning systems, as well as a selection of air motor-based tube cleaning systems, and an extensive selection of tube cleaning accessories and supplies.
