Removing debris from blind or deep holes is an important yet risky task. Nozzles have typically been used to blow into deep holes splashing out waste and making a mess in automated systems, and where manual effort is used, it makes for a messy and dangerous operation requiring protective gear to avoid injury. The Blind Hole Cleaning System was developed for the purpose of improving safety and minimizing or eliminating a mess. Some systems have appeared where a nozzle blows into a deep hole and a vacuum then draws the material removed to be taken away. However that does not work very well because you fight the blowing action with the vacuum action. This new system uses only a powerful blowing action and uses a venturi effect to draw out dust and debris from deep holes in drilled parts that are hard to clean safely. As of January, 2021 the system has been significantly improved with a much better air gun and redesigned adapters for various diameters of blind holes.
In November, 2021 the product has been improved again with a superior safety seal added to the hole adapter and forma apart of the adapter to more easily seal the contact point between the Blind Hole Cleaner and the part to be cleaned. This not only secures against any leakage of air and material for improved safety and workplace cleanliness, but also to better isolate the blind hole being cleaned for improved cleaning action and performance. This also has allowed for the cleaning of even deeper holes to the depth of 27 inches!
It is designed so that the hole is completely covered to address safety issues while compressed air is blown into the hole through specially designed nozzles. In this way, all the material in the deep, blind hole ends up in an attached, removable collection bag. No material is blown around the part or facility allowing for a cleaner, and safer, cleaning operation. The improved design is more powerful, more user friendly, more rugged and ideal for use in the most difficult of applications.
