HydroDrill™ Tube Cleaning Services
Utilizing a water flush and rotary drilling action, Conco HydroDrill Tube Cleaning Systems are the fastest and most effective way to remove difficult deposits from the inside of heat exchanger tubes, chemical reactors, condensers, re-boilers and absorbers. Sized properly, the heavy duty Dominator and hand held Mitee Mouse II units are designed for maximum cleaning effectiveness. Both units will quickly scour away hard deposits such as coke, calcium, sulfur, bauxite, asphalt, oxides and baked-on hard polymers. Depending on the system used, Conco crews can remove obstructions from any type of tube ranging from 13 to 70 mm O.D. and up to 18 m in length. Completely blocked tubes can be restored to 100% of the original tube I.D. in one pass. HydroDrill tube cleaning is fast, typically clearing 6 m long tubes in only 30 to 90 seconds each. The system can even accommodate tubes that are bowed, since the long, slender Kelly Rod or Extension Rod that drives the bit inherently bends to follow the tube. Both HydroDrills are easy to set up and operate. A Conco crew can be in-the-cut in less than one hour. In the last 30 years, the HydroDrill system has successfully cleaned thousands of heat exchanger tubes, worldwide.
