PSI is proud to offer the industry’s largest selection of Peinemann Equipment’s hands-free semi-automated tube bundle cleaning systems, rated up to 40,000 psi (2800 bar). Hands-free systems ensure a safer workplace for our customers, allowing operators to remotely control the equipment while stationed away from the blast site. After positioning the system’s guide tube against the tube to be cleaned, the operator manipulates the simple controls to extend or retract the high-pressure flex or rigid lance. An excellent finished product is the result of the nozzle traveling the full length of the tube, both in and out, under pressure. And, with the option to clean up to five tubes at a time, these tube bundle cleaning systems maximize productivity and guarantee consistent product removal compared to manual lancing.

Single Lance Tube Cleaners: LTC and XLTC
The simplest and easiest solution for hands-free tube and small diameter pipe cleaning are the LTC and XLTC systems. Lightweight, compact, and affordable, the single lance tube cleaners provide greatly increased productivity, superior cleaning results and above all, operator safety. When used with the Orion index positioner, the LTC and XLTC systems become semi-automated, increasing productivity and operator safety.
The standard single lance machine (LTC) is most suitable for 4/2 and 5/2 flex lances (DN4and5or1/16”NPTand1/8”NPT).
The XLTC is the big brother of the LTC. This single lance machine feeds flex lances from 4/2 (1/16”NPT) up to 8/4 (9/16”MP).

Orion Index Positioner: For use with LTC and XLTC Systems
The new Orion indexer is the latest addition to our line of tools. The Orion enables the use of the LTC and XLTC in a “hands free” fully robotic mode. It offers cleaning solutions for heat exchangers in place, in both horizontal and vertical configurations. This new patent pending device is compact, lightweight and easily installed in minutes by a single operator. The Orion consist of four major components; a mounting bracket with pneumatic gearbox, 2” box rail with pneumatic movement, LTC or XLTC drive, and a remote control. The operator can control all functions from the pneumatic,lightweight remote control unit, including lance feed rate, and air actuated dump, all from a safe distance, eliminating the need for a hand held (X) LTC. This versatile and flexible new tool can also be used in combination with a gun nozzle attachment for easy and safe cleaning of the tube sheet, flanges and other components.

The Jobox isn't JUST your average toolbox. It’s designed to contain equipment parts and pieces, helping you save money by safely storing and keeping track of equipment while also saving you time spent on finding missing parts. The PSI Jobox is customized for your automated tool of choice, any make and model, including Peinemann tube cleaning systems, StoneAge systems, pump conversion kits, and many more.
Triple Tube Lance Cleaner and Blast Hose Feeder:
TLX with Flex Frame
The NEW Peinemann TLX is the LIGHTEST, STRONGEST, and MOST VERSATILE hands- free automated hose and flex lance feeder in the water blasting industry. What makes the TLX feeder better than any other hands-free system? The TLX is the one-and-done tool for ANY pipe or tube cleaning application, capable of running up to three flex lances or one large rubber hose. The new gear drive offers variable speed and power settings using a single air motor, which is conveniently mounted at the front of the machine, reducing the overall footprint. And thanks to the carbon fiber body and alloy components, the system is 30% lighter in weight than other hose feeders, while maintaining powerful pulling force. The new stainless-steel, quick-change cartridge style chains last longer and make field repairs easy. The TLX also features an optional flushing system to keep internal components debris-free.

Outside Bundle Cleaner: OBC
The OBC provides a safe and efficient way to clean outside (shellside) of tube bundles quickly, safey, and easily. The tube bundle is placed on two optional heavy-duty rollers, which can be controlled from the operator cabin. The bundle is cleaned by a nozzle bar that can be manipulated in three directions; horizontal, vertical, rotating nozzle assembly in/out. All hydraulic controls are placed in an HVAC cabin where the operator sits comfortably and safely without being exposed to the debris coming off the bundle. A hydraulic power pack is situated behind the cabin, allowing for easily accessibility. All hydraulic hoses are fitted with quick connectors for easy transportation.

Five Lance Tube Cleaner: IBC-5
To meet the challenges of the most demanding cleaning contractors worldwide, PSI offers the 5-lance IBC-5, one of the fastest tube ID cleaning machines in the world operating up to five rigid lances at once. The IBC-5 was developed to be used at a wash pad or bundle cleaning bay and is the ultimate tool during shutdowns to clean bundles in the shortest possible time. The operator sits comfortably in the HVAC cab while removed from the dangerous high-pressure water and the contamination that can be found inside the bundles. The IBC-5 is a hydraulic driven machine which is powered by a diesel engine or electric motor. There are two hydraulic cylinders with cables to move up or down and left and right. The lances are powered by a large hydraulic motor which drives two chains. Each lance has its own supply of high-pressure water by means of an 0.31” (8mm) ID hose to reduce pressure loss and maximize the volume of water. The average cleaning speed is approximately 8,000-9,000 tubes per shift and passes IRIS the first time.
