The RAM-4X is the upgrade of the RAM-4 Tube Cleaner. A higher rpm, more torque and a stronger machine everywhere, allows the RAM-4X to go further than the RAM-4. However, the RAM-4X is more often used for dry cleaning and work in the following applications:
In combination with the right tools (see related articles), this machine is capable of removing heavy pollution from pipe bundles and other piping systems.
This machine has a Heavy-Duty dolly, which makes it easy to move the system. With an engine power of 1 HP there is quite a bit of power behind it, which is also necessary for heavy cleaning projects. The system has a fixed speed of 1725 RPM.
Below 2 short videos, where both dry and water is cleaned:
Methodology Mechanical Cleaning
The method of mechanical cleaning always consists of at least (1) a machine, (2) a flexible shaft and (3) a brush or tool. Below is a short video, where the method is explained by us. Note that water is used here, when cleaning boilers, flame pipes and the like, this is of course done dry (with special flexible shafts).
Combi Deals/Product Bundles
In the field of dry cleaning processes, the method always consists of at least (1) a Tube Cleaning machine, (2) a black flexible shaft and (3) a Heavy Duty Tool. In principle, it is also necessary to dispose of loose dirt during cleaning. Where this is done with water in a water-cooled condenser, we also have equipment/options for this for the dry cleaning processes. For this we recommend the following systems:
On the right side of this page are a number of combi deals. The first product bundle is a basic package for boiler cleaning, without such extraction. Combi deal 2 contains the complete package to clean boiler and flame pipes + suck off the loose dirt directly. Of course you can also just order the items separately, however, the product bundles can steer you in the right direction.

Alternative Tube Cleaners
When choosing an electric machine, there are several alternatives to the RAM-4X. The RAM-4X is basically the moderator of the RAM-4 series:
Apart from the power there are few other big differences in the RAM-4 series. We often see that the RAM-4 is also used for wet cleaning projects in more than 50% of the cases. Think of cleaning condensers on ships. The RAM-4X-2, on the other hand, is mainly used for boiler cleaning and such dry projects, due to the extra power of the Tube Cleaning machine. All 3 machines have a strong dolly, and are therefore mobile.
You may also prefer a pneumatically driven Tube Cleaner. The first option is the AWT-100, which is very compact and small in size. The upgrade is our AWT-100X, which is our most sold Tube Cleaner. This is by far our most powerful machine, and is therefore often used in the toughest projects. Think of pipe cleaning processes in the Food and Petrochemical industry, or large catalyst pipe bundles.
