Automatic Tube Brushing System


On-Line condenser tube cleaning with the Automatic Tube Brushing (ATB) System is a permanent solution for fouling in chiller condensers and other straight tube and shell heat exchangers. When fouling is minimized, maintenance and energy savings are maximized.

WHY USE ON-LINE TUBE CLEANING?
Periodic tube cleaning with expensive and dangerous acid or through labor-intensive manual
brushing is a temporary fix to a permanent problem. An automatic tube cleaning system,
on-line and permanent, virtually eliminates tube fouling and
saves 10-25% in energy costs.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The ATB System four-way valve back-flushes the condenser water for 30 seconds every six
hours, propelling nylon brushes through the tubes. The cleaning brushes are suspended in
plastic catch baskets in the water boxes, the catch baskets are epoxied in at each tube end.
The Brushes, working with normal chemical treatment, clean foulants from the tubes before
they ever have a chance to harden on the heat transfer surface.
CAN IT WORK ON PLATE HEAT EXCHANGERS?
The four-way back-flushing valve can even be installed on plate and frame heat exchangers to
reduce plate fouling. This "
Automatic Back-flush System" backwashes the inlet several times each day.
The Automatic Tube Brushing System is a simple, proven, and reliable way to
keep your heat exchanger clean and save significant energy!
