Rubber – sponge cleaning beads are the basis of Taprogge cleaning systems and are suitable for any type of cooling water systems to 80 ° C.
Istotne parametry do prawidłowego doboru kulek to: materiał rur chłodzących, geometria rur, prędkość i temperatura wody oraz biologia i skład chemiczny wody, jak również dane hydrauliczne i konstrukcyjne instalacji .
Important parameters for the right balls selection are: type of cooling water tube material, pipe geometry, water velocity and temperature and water biology and chemical composition as well as hydraulic and design data of the installed system.
Standard range of balls in diameters from 14 till 44 mm.
The different tube material tend to typical appearances of fouling, scaling and corrosion.
Ball types respond to those appearances by their material properties and coating.
27 – S 16 0 – 3
27- nominal ball diameter (mm) depends on pipe diameter and cooling watwer velocity. Often 1-3 mm biggest than pipe wall diameter.
S – ball type
16 – ball recipe no. 16
0 – fiels of tolerance 27-28mm
3 – hardness degree (elasticity) 3 normal
|Ball type||Ball recipey||Fiel of tolerance||Hardness
|G – plastic granulate ball||11 – green||1 standard||1 soft|
|L – long life ball||13 – orange||1 special balls||2 soft/ normal|
|P – polishing ball||15 – brown||2 special balls||3 normal|
|R – ring coated corundum ball||16 – dark blue||4 normal/hard|
|S – sponge ball||20 – blue||5 hard|
|T – totally coated corundum ball||22 – red||6 extra hard|
|30 – light brown|
With stainless steel and titanium tubes has average cleaning frequency of 12 cleaning balls per hour and tube.
The distribution is influenced by the ball distribution in the cooling water inlet pipe, the flow conditions in the waterboxes and especially by the properties of the Taprogge balls
Essential factor of the ball lifetime are: tube roughness, degree of fouling of the tubes , and type of fouling. The gegree of waer of cleaning balls fluctuates between a few days and approx. 4 weeks.
