X-Y Axis
THE HYDROKINETIC X-Y AXIS MOUNTS DIRECTLY TO THE FACE OF THE EXHANGER TO BE CLEANED
This limits our employees’ exposure to high pressure water and hazardous materials commonly seen employed in conventional cleaning methods.

Safety
THE WORLDWIDE SAFETY RECORD FOR USING HYDROKINETIC TECHNOLOGY IS UNMATCED. SINCE THE TECHNOLOGY WAS INVENTED IN 1994 THERE HAVE BEEN:
NO RECORDABLE INCIDENTS
NO ENVIRONMENTAL INCIDENTS
SOLUTIONS FOR
PLUGGED TUBES
Hydrokinetics works without flow in the line
THIN SCALE
Hydrokinetics removes all seed material so equipment stays clean longer
BUNDLE REMOVAL
Hydrokinetics cleans in place saving mechanical work
THIGHT SPACES
Hydrokinetics only requires about 3 feet of working area
