Ferret tube cleaning machines are suitable for cleaning tubes in all boilers, air pre-heaters, heat ex-changers, etc. of the smoke tube. The Machines function equally well in horizontal as in vertical tubes The Ferret machines are powered by compressed air.
The Ferret machines propels itself through the tube without
manuel pushing or pulling of the hose. The machine´s speed can be adjusted by raising or lowering the air pressure.
The extremely powerful cleaning effect is achieved not by rotation but by high-frequency oscillation, i.e. repetitive back and forth movement. With air pressure of approximately 5.6 bar, the supplied power is 736 Watts, i.e. one horsepower (150 RH) At this power, each tube is cleaned form one end to the other. The machine´s air motor is highly efficient, with low utilization of compressed air.
