The Pipe Cleaning Training Unit, "TELT", designed by EDIBON, simulates a real house piping system, so original components used in plumbing systems are employed.
The objective of this unit is to study the cleaning of pipes from the sanitation system, removing possible waste from the drinking water pipes. Among the most common waste there are remnants of sealant, solder, rust, etc.
The panel simulates the real system of a house, so it is composed of original elements found in sanitation systems. The system supplies water to an automatic mixer with temperature safety stop to 70 ºC, a two-handle mixer, a toilet tank and possible fittings with hoses.
Water is introduced in the system, using hoses, through cold water intakes, to a minimum pressure of 3 bar. The intakes are connected to a quick-action bleed valve for safety purposes. Part of the water is heated in a boiler simulator that includes a safety valve. Contaminants are introduced in the system through some closable intakes. Besides, the system includes transparent pieces that allow the user to observe the flushing of the pipes from bottom to top.
- Study of pipes flushing techniques according to the DIN 1988/83/CE standard.
- Use of original components from plumbing systems.
- Understanding the operation of the main elements of a house sanitation system.
- Limitations of pipes flushing process.
