QUICK FLUSH

Our Quick Flush high velocity pipe flushing will effectively flush piping, no matter what the diameter, length or change in direction. This system flushes piping using less liquid, minimal temporary piping and no circulation pumps.

The Quick Flush method generates a 20-foot frothed slug of liquid, which is propelled at high velocity through the pipe by a gas. Travelling at 50 to 80 feet per second, the slug has the force to remove debris and loose scale safely and effectively. Each application of this technique is engineered to generate Reynolds numbers and Froude numbers sufficient to lift debris from pipe walls and transport the debris from the piping system.

Advantages

No Need for Circulation: Traditional methods incorporate pumps to circulate large volumes of liquid cleaning solutions at slow velocities. In some places fire hydrant pressures at 3-4 bars are used as once through cleaning method. The Quick Flush method completely eliminates the need for circulation and reduces the volume of waste solutions requiring disposal.

Our process employs non-alkaline detergent to remove oils and detergent-soluble organic material. These chemistries are designed to meet environmental requirements of any plant site. Our turnkey package includes temporary equipment, detailed procedures, chemistry and site technicians to complete the project.

Constant High Velocities

The Quick Flush method maintains constant high velocities even over long lengths and during multidirectional changes in piping systems. It greatly reduces the frictional losses experienced with a circulating system. This increased efficiency translates into economies of time, personnel and costs.

The viscosity of the frothed air and mixture is many times that of either air or water alone, thus the slug has a much greater capacity to suspend solids until it exits the line. The fine dispersion of air bubbles in the slug reduces density and creates a compressibility property within the slug. In essence, the slug acts like a "foam pig", however, this slug can conform to line size changes and pass obstruction through which traditional foam pigs cannot pass.

Localized Cavitation

The high rates of shear generated at the pipe wall create a localised Cavitation, which will remove loosely adherent debris. It is this type of gritty debris often left by traditional flushing which results in damaged pump seals and plugged control valves and heat exchangers.
