Introduction SGB Tube Cleaning Brushes
With Goodway's mechanical cleaning methodology, almost all pipe bundles & pipes from 7 to 25 millimetres can be cleaned. Think of heat exchangers, Chillers, Condensers and other Coolers.
The SGB Tube Cleaning Brush is the most universal Goodway brush. The concept is to use a larger excess in order to achieve a greater cleaning effect. The abrasive bristles are somewhat more flexible, allowing every part of the tube to come into contact with the brush. Practice has shown that this brush can also remove light limescale.
An important feature of the SGB series is that 4 different brush sizes together have a range of 7 to 26 mm (1/4" to 1"). This ensures that 1 type of brush (e.g. SGB-075) can be used for several pipe diameters without compromising the cleaning effect. The importance of millimetre accuracy is therefore reduced in this case, because 1 brush has a larger range. This in contrast to for example the GTC-211 Nylon series brushes, where each tube I.D. also has its own type of brush.
Overview dimensions SGB Brush Series:
||Diameter in mm
||Diameter in Inches
||1/4" - 3/8"
||7/16" - 5/8"
||11/16" - 3/4"
||13/16" - 1"
Quick-Connect vs Standard Coupling
If possible, we advise you to always choose a 'Quick-Connect' version. This further optimises your cleaning processes, because the machine, flexible shaft and brushes are fully coupled in one operation. This way you will be operational with the entire Tube Cleaning Set in one minute.
Another advantage of Quick-Connect couplings is that, in combination with the right machine, the brush has a two-sided rotating effect (rotating both left and right). This applies to the following Tube Cleaning machines: Ram-Pro, Ram-4 and the Ram-Pro-XL.
The coupling process of a Quick-Connect brush is briefly explained in the video below. Furthermore, in this short video you can also see how Goodway's Mechanical Tube Cleaning method works in practice, with an explanation.
