Gardner Denver Water Jetting Systems Now Offers TLE

July 23, 2002

Gardner Denver Water Jetting Systems now offers its customers the TLE - Trans Line Exchanger Cleaner. This lightweight machine has been developed to clean vertical trans line exchangers in furnaces and other vertical bundles. It consists of two air motors: one to feed the hose and one to retract the hose. The body consists of two pieces: made from a special aluminum alloy, which can be separated by 4 small air cylinders, for quick-changing of the high pressure hoses. The hoses are moved by two continuous chains with polyurethane blocks, which are powered by the air cylinders. The TLE is small, light and easy to operate. The operator manipulates the switches on top of the unit to drive the hoses. Two handles can be fixed in several positions to suit the operator. A balancer with guides for the hoses is also available. It is also possible to equip the TLE cleaner with adjustable pitch blocks capable of holding two high pressure hoses, so both hoses can be inserted simultaneously. The TLE may also be used for horizontal applications and with a remote control. The TLE keeps operators from handling high-pressure hoses. The pneumatic safety switch on the bottom of the machine stops all movement when lifted. The pitch seals off the distance between the tubes and the TLE to prevent operator exposure to water jets. The TLE gives the option of using a variety of nozzles to allow cleaning, both going in and coming out, for consistent results. Production can be doubled by adapting the TLE to handle two hoses for cleaning two tubes at a time.
