Automated Tube Lancing

At the forefront of MPW’s technology are the SAL-1 (single automated lance) and MAL-3 (multiple automated lance) systems. These automated tube lancing systems produce a constant and consistent clean throughout the entire length of the tube. Utilizing air motors, these systems drive the lance forward and pull the lance back under pressure.

The MAL-3 is a fully automated system that is operated remotely from a PLC-controlled station fully removing the operator from the blast area. The X-Y System is easily assembled on horizontal or vertical tube bundles without the use of cranes or forklifts by minimal number of technicians.
