Removing Powder in Tubes
A manufacturing company was suffering from a lot of residual product in the transport pipes after production runs. This had a negative effect on the production capacity because not enough product could be transported through the pipes. Therefore, they have introduced periodic, daily shifts. In other words, after each production run the pipes must be cleaned. So for this they also looked for adequate equipment.
Goodway Benelux supplied a professional pipe/tube cleaning set for this purpose. This involves mechanical, rotating equipment. Special, oversized ''spider brushes'' are inserted into the tube, which then rotate at high speed. Because of their oversize, they create a lot of friction in the pipes, allowing the deposits to be removed quickly. In this case, nylon brushes were used, but in other cases Goodway Benelux also supplied stainless steel types, depending on the application.
