This tool cleans vessels without confined-space entry

The Heavy Duty Whip is a portable, remote-controlled solution for blocked vessels and plugged discharge chutes. The Heavy Duty Whip can be lowered into storage vessels through a manhole opening, allowing it to address blockages without the need for confined-space entry by personnel. Powered by compressed air, this tool uses a modular boom arrangement that extends from 2 to 8.5 m and can clean vessels up to 18 m in diameter and 68.5 m tall from a single central opening of just 450 mm. The Heavy Duty Whip can also be equipped with a variety of flails and cutting edges to knock down accumulated material without damaging storage vessels. Abrasion-resistant steel chain is best suited for most applications, with non-sparking brass chains available for combustible materials. — Martin Engineering, Neponset, Ill.
