The Air Rotary Water (ARW) Tube Cleaning Machine
The ARW-1 is 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 (1.5 HP) and the 6AM delivers up to 3.0 Kilowatts (4.0HP). 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 upon operation the foot control supplies 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 the debris, removed by the cleaning tool, is washed forward.
The cleaning tools consist of Nylon, Brass, Steel, Spingrit Brushes, Flex Hone Scale Remover, and Bowed Wire Buffer Tools with or without Drill Bits. 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.
