Drilling pipe cleaning machine require regular non-destructive testing to prove their integrity. Water jetting is the preferred method for cleaning prior to inspection. Corrosion, and cement products can be removed in a single pass, even if the pipe is completely blocked.
Drilling pipe cleaning machine is used in almost every region of the world and continually needs cleaned and serviced. Contamination levels vary to include NORM which needs contained and removed in a safe efficient manner.
In a drilling process, most drill pipes need special care to get cleaned up. Watex develops special nozzles and accessories for a better cleaning. Furthermore, we are always upgrading advanced accessories for an optimized ultra-high pressure hydroblasting in drill pipes with internal plastic and cement coating.
We have designed a bespoke decontamination unit with automated loading and unloading of drill pipe. Jetting at 40k psi with a Watex ultra high pressure pump automation from the safety and comfort of an air conditioned control station inside the unit.
Drill pipe cleaning machine application

Benefits of water jetting for drilling pipe cleaning machine
A range of pipe diameters can be cleaned with drilling pipe cleaning machine
Any deposit can be removed scale, corrosion, process deposits & even cement
The jetting process flushes debris back to the open ended pipe
Totally blocked pipes can be cleared
Steel pipe can be cleaned to white metal if 2000-3000bar is used
Water jets will not damage or roughen the pipe surface The pump is versatile & can be used for other cleaning
Oil riser cleaning
Oil risers are being cleaned with our Model: D-stream2800, drilling pipe cleaning machine with 20′ foot containerised unit.
Water blasting is one of the utmost importance for continued excellence in your resource extraction operation. Everything from platform washing to tank cleaning services is needed to prevent the buildup of paraffin, crude debris, slag, dirt and other residues. Moreover, cleaning must be done by a qualified professional to ensure safety and integrity.
- The pump produces up to 365kw and is driven by a diesel engine.
- The customer also has the option of the pump being driven by an electric motor.
- For the application shown the pump is producing the following pressure and flow.
- 2,800 bar @ 60.00 l/min
- With this pressure and flow a near white metal finish is produced.
- The pressure and the flow are variable.
Drilling pipe cleaning machine is one of the most integral components of drilling operation, particularly in the petrochemical and energy industry. Due to the different fluids these pipes are moving and the underground conditions in which they work, it is crucial that they are on a strict maintenance schedule for drill pipe cleaning so that they can be cleaned and serviced. Otherwise, these pipes can quickly deteriorate from wear and tear, and ruin products due to high contamination levels of product.
Why choose Watex drilling pipe cleaning machine ?
- We offer efficient way to remove internal and external contaminants for the tube or pipe .
- Our products feature enclosed jetting solutions to contain waste or dangerous materials.
- Fully automated systems as option to eliminate manual handling and reduce vehicle movements.
- When hardened mud build up in oil well drill pipes , blocked drill heads are the usual result. This reduces efficiency and increases downtime. Traditional brush systems can leave some build-up behind and require a rinse operation to flush debris and drilling fluids.
- With Watex 40,000 psi (2,780 bar) water jetting system , build-up disappears in a single pass, without a separate rinse operation. Drill pipe easily passes inspection and gets back into service sooner.
Advantages with drilling pipe cleaning machine :
- Complete removal of plugged mud and scale
- More productivity and effectively with less downtime
- Systems tailored to client’s removal requirement
- Many brush systems can be converted if needed
