At ADI’s facility: Demonstration of Aqua Milling® with open ended spool pieces.
At Client’s Power Facility: Cleaning Project in Underground Piping System.
Diameters: 48 inches (1.2 m), 64 inches (1.6 m), 120 inches (3 m)
At client's power plant (Combined Cycle) construction site: Removal of Mill scale and construction debris from steam piping. Aqua Milling of piping in rack entering through drip legs and on lay-down yard. Calpine
At Client’s site: Cleaning Project in Water Line/Penstock System with Diameter 82 inches (2.1 m). ADI’s newest patent pending cleaning system removes scale or coatings from up to 200 inches (5 meter) diameter piping systems in vertical or horizontal configurations. Grande Dixence SA/ Switzerland
At cleaning facility: Cleaning of 30ft (10 meter) long horizontal Heater with 3/8” ID (10mm) plugged tubes. The Aqua Lancer™ cleaning system can scope with smallest tube diameters and toughest scales using a 600HP single or dual water drilling cleaning process. Unmatched cleanliness of the internal tube wall allows for eddy current inspections and optimized heat transfer rates. Bayer Material Science/USA
At ADI's facility: An alloy P91 pipe spool piece is cleaned for testing purposes using the Aqua Milling® process followed by an Inspectorsystems - Crawler inspection. General Electric
At ADI’s facility: Development and testing of various cutting heads for Bauxite removal. Alcoa
This state of the art video crawler developed and used by our partner “Inspector Systems” exceeds Aqua Milling® limitations such as number of 90’s and maximum length of travel.
At client plant: Cleaning of vertical tube heat exchanger, entering tubes from the bottom. The 600HP Aqua Milling® Process controls all cleaning parameters to achieve unmatched cleanliness of the internal tube walls, improving heat transfer and performance.
At client's plant: Cleaning of small diameter heater coils in customer lay-down yard. Aqua Milling is used on same coils when installed in furnace (vertical). Fully plugged coils can be unplugged. DuPont
At client's plant: Cleaning of Heater Coils in customer lay-down yard. Aqua Milling routinely cleans same coils in vertical position (in place). Cleaning head travels through 3 to 4 180 degree bends. DuPont
At ADI’s facility: Determining cleaning parameters and settings on customer supplied short pipe section (sample mailed to ADI). Saudi Aramco
Aqua Milling® Thrusters remove heavy debris such as 36" pipe wrenches or construction debris from large diameter piping. The procedure which uses a mixed air/water jet thrust is called "flushing" and can be performed to transport scale over long distances back to the entry point.
At ADI’s facility: Determining cleaning speed on customer supplied spool piece. Imperial Sugar
300 ft (90 m) vertical run tin smelter chimney. De-scaling of entire stack entering from the ground without any support from the top outlet. EPA Super Fund Site
