For16-inch to 60-inch diameter pipe, the Pipe Pro XL™ is a pneumatically operated tool for cleaning pipe interior surfaces. It attaches to the blast hose in place of a standard nozzle. The Pipe Pro XL features an air motor, which controls the rotation of the blast head, where two identical nozzles mount. The 360° rotation of the blast head provides complete cleaning without rotating the pipe. Variable-speed head rotation means precise RPM adjustment so that the degree of cleaning the pipe surface condition requires can quickly and easily be achieved. The adjustable carriage with urethane wheels centers the tool within the pipe and provides smooth movement throughout its length.
The tool uses two standard short- or long-venture nozzles, which must be ordered separately because nozzle choice depends upon the diameter of the pipe and the available compressed air supply.
The Clemco Spin-Blast is (a highly specialized attachment connected to the end of a pressure blast machine hose) specifically designed to restore any type of pipe to white metal clean without need of rotating pipe. With the complete removal of virtually any contaminant and with a highly desirable “tooth”, the interior pipe surface is superbly prepared for the application of long-life coatings. Applicable for pipe sizes ranging from 8 inch to 36 inch I.D. the unit is a high production favorite of refineries, pipe liners, chemical producers, water and gas companies.
The Spin-Blast can be used with all common abrasives except aluminum oxide and silicon carbide. Simple preventive maintenance allows low-cost operation. Three nozzles of varied orifices and centering (two) carriages are available to accommodate pipes from 8 inch I.D. to 36 inch I.D. Either carriage is quickly adjustable for any diameter within the size range.
The Spin-Blast is connected with 1-1/4 inch pipe lance to a standard Clemco blast machine . Preferably the lance should be the length (up to 40 ft.) of the pipe being cleaned. To operate, the Spin-Blast is first pushed through the length of the pipe while the blast machine is idle. The air is fed from the blast machine which starts the blast head rotating. With full rotating speed quickly obtained, the abrasive control valve on the Clemco blast machine is opened. When the abrasive ejects from the spinning nozzle then the blasting is is progress, signaling the operator to withdraw the tool to clean the entire pipe length. Blasting speed is determined by the specific cleaning requirements. Standard unit delivered with 1/4 inch orifice by 1-3/4 inch long nozzles.
Clemco Hollo-Blast Jr.
The Hollo-Blast Jr. is designed to clean pipe or tubing from 3/4 inch to 2 inch I.D. in 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch increments. The tool is mounted on 3/8 inch pipe lance for the length of tubing to be cleaned. A tungsten carbide lined reducer adapts the 3/8 inch lance to standard straight 1-1/4 inch thread for attachment to blast machine hose. Operation of the Hollo-Blast Jr. is the same as Hollo-Blast. Air consumption is 80 CFM. Recommended abrasive size is 30 mesh or finer.
Internal Pipe Cleaning Tool
Rugged, Heavy-duty, and Low Maintenance
- For pipes 18″ to 48″ ID
- Air motor control offers exibility in cleaning rates for varying surface conditions
- Adjustable centering carriage for consistent blast pattern
- Use with standard blast machine
Pipe cleaning just got easier with the Spin-Blast HD from Clemco. The Spin-Blast HD is a rugged, portable, high-production tool for blast cleaning the internal surface of steel pipe. Its carriage adjusts for cleaning pipe from 18 inches to 48 inches inside diameter.
The Spin-Blast HD is a pneumatic tool that is used as an accessory to a
standard blast machine. Compressed air powers an air motor for control of the blast head rotation speed allowing infinite flexibility for varying degrees of contamination of the steel surface. The tool can be used with nozzles from 3/8″ ID to 1/2″ ID and requires a minimum of 1-1/2” ID blast hose. [Larger nozzles can be used in special situations—consult distributor].
- Sturdy, rugged tool that withstands the harsh blast environment
- Few moving parts to replace
- Independent air motor control of blast head suits varying surface conditions
The Clemco Hollo-Blast cleans the full 360 degree inside diameter of pipe to white metal finish. It operates without need of rotating the pipe or the tool. deposits such as rust, carbon millscale, coke and paint are easily removed. The Hollo-Blast will accommodate pipes from 2 inch to 12 inch I.D. and lengths up to 40 feet. Any abrasive (except aluminum oxide or silicon carbide) 20 mesh or finer may be used. In operation, the proper model is attached to a pipe lance and connected to Clemco blast hose. The Hollo-Blast is inserted into the pipe, the Clemco blast machine is started and the Hollo-Blast is manually pushed through the pipe. Abrasive hits the tungsten carbide deflector tip and fans out to clean the 360 degree interior. Air will blow spent abrasive and contaminants out of the pipe. The rate of cleaning depends on deposits being removed. Hollo-Blast is available with 1/2 inch or 5/8 inch nozzles. Standard HB-1 delivered with 1/2 inch nozzle. Air consumption, 1/2 inch 200 CFM, 5/8 inch 350 CFM.
