Industrial pipe cleaning


Welcome to comprex® – Your Experts in Mechanical and Industrial Pipe Cleaning

Pipeline Cleaning Excellence Achieved with comprex® Impulses

At comprex®, we proudly uphold our commitment to the efficient and sustainable cleaning of piping systems and components.

We found our roots in municipal pipe cleaning in Germany over 25 years ago. Today, our services span a diverse spectrum of applications, extending beyond the municipal sector to encompass industrial, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, dairy, drinking water, and numerous others.

In addition to pipelines, our cutting-edge technology is designed to clean a variety of inline equipment, including heat exchangers, static mixers, and a wide range of inline process components. .

The comprex® Impulse Cleaning Process operates through a mechanical approach, harnessing pulsed compressed air and a minimal water usage. Our mission is to treat water as a precious resource, utilizing it responsibly and driving improvements in energy efficiency through our innovative CIP technology.

Hygiene is a critical aspect in numerous applications we serve. While our key differentiating factors include water, energy, and time savings, we also protect our customers from product loss due to microbial and quality issues stemming from unclean pipes, such as cross-contamination.

comprex® Impulse Cleaning provides excellent value for Clean-in-Place (CIP) services for most inline components, including heat exchangers. Our services enhance heat transfer efficiency while reducing downtime and maintenance requirements. By optimizing the cleanliness and functionality of inline components, we empower our clients to achieve peak performance and operational excellence.

comprex® - industrial pipe cleaning and more

Simple but effective:

When it comes to cleaning your pipeline (industrial, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, dairy, drinking water, and more), we employ our patented comprex® Impulse Flushing Process. This innovative method offers you an efficient, ongoing cleaning solution that reduces time, effort, and costs. It’s available for both preventive and remedial cleaning.

We specialize in cleaning a wide range of piping systems, including:

  • Product lines of similar or varying diameters
  • Cooling and tempering circuits
  • Heat exchangers
  • Plant components
  • Static mixers
  • Cooling lubricant lines
  • Drinking water distribution networks
  • Wastewater pressure lines
  • And many more


comprex®: Your Mechanical Solution for Comprehensive Deposit Removal:

At the heart of comprex® technology lies the remarkable power of multistate fluid dynamics, capable of tackling a wide spectrum of contaminants. Whether it’s loose sediments, recently deposited dirt, tenacious germs like legionella, or strongly adhering grime, our innovative approach ensures a thorough cleaning process. Be it sludge, paint residues, or food particles, our primary aim is to restore the cleanliness of your lines and maintain long run pipeline hygiene. We firmly believe that regular equipment maintenance is not just a necessity but a vital component of achieving efficient and hygienic production processes.
What sets us apart?
Unlike conventional water flushing techniques that often rely on harsh chemicals, our method employs precise pulses of compressed air and water. This mechanical approach allows us to achieve the desired cleaning results for various pipeline types, demonstrating that, in most instances, aggressive chemicals are unnecessary
Our cleaning units are integrated with the process line to be cleaned. Filtered compressed air is then introduced into the line in a controlled and pulsed fashion. Inside the pipeline, alongside the water, we create pockets of air and water slugs that flow through the pipeline section at high speeds, reaching up to 65 ft/s.
These packages create significant turbulence along with powerful shear and drag forces, effectively mobilizing and dislodging deposits from the pipe walls with unparalleled efficiency.
The outcome: pristine pipelines and uncontaminated products – a blend of efficiency, care, and affordability.

comprex® Compared to a conventional water flushing system

The powerful cleaning impulses generated by air and water are not only highly effective but also consume up to 90% less water compared to a traditional water flush.

The comprex® impulses propel at speeds of up to 44 mph within the pipeline in contrast with traditional flush speeds of 6 mph.

44 mph = 65 ft/s
6 mph = 9 ft/s

The mechanical cleaning forces applied to the internal surfaces of process lines and components are significantly amplified, reaching up to 100 times the strength of water rinsing when utilizing comprex®. Surprisingly, despite this intensified cleaning power, our process is gentle on the pipelines, as the pressure remains well below the system’s operating limits
