Jetstream Named Authorized Distributor for Peinemann Tube Cleaning Tools
LOUISVILLE (Feb. 25, 2009) – Jetstream of Houston, manufacturer of high-quality waterblasters, parts and accessories, has been named an authorized distributor for Peinemann Equipment B.V., a Netherlands-based manufacturer of hydraulic tube bundle extractors and high-pressure cleaning systems for tube bundles and heat exchangers used in the petrochemical industry. Jetstream is authorized to distribute Peinemann’s line of tube-cleaning tools – including the LTC and XLTC air-powered, hand-held flex lancing tools, and the TLE-B remotely-controlled tube cleaning tool – and accessory parts. Samples of these tube-cleaning tools will be on display at Jetstream’s booth (#2077) during the 2009 International Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo.
“Our partnership with Peinemann further solidifies our commitment to providing complete solutions to our customers,” said Mike Bullard, marketing manager for parts and accessories at Jetstream. “Both Jetstream and Peinemann have long-standing reputations for delivering unmatched quality products and service offerings to customers.”
According to Bullard, waterjetting practices have been trending toward automated and semi-automated equipment for some time, so the practice of running a lance through a tube by hand is declining.
“Peinemann’s products address this trend by isolating the operator from the flex lance,” Bullard said. He added that Peinemann specializes in automated and semi-automated equipment for the removal and cleaning of heat exchangers. “They are a strong international brand for a product group that supplements our current waterblaster product offerings,” he said.
“Jetstream and FS Solutions – which stocks high performance parts and accessories for the Jetstream brand of waterblasters at six locations around the country – are both part of Federal Signal Environmental Solutions Group,” Bullard said. “This gives Peinemann access to broader sales, service and distribution channels.”
FS Solutions provides high-performance parts for most makes and models of industrial vacuum loaders and waterblasters; a wide range of accessories for industrial cleaning operations, repairing and rebuilding of equipment, pumps, and blowers; a large selection of refurbished vacuum trucks; and waterblaster rentals at select locations across the United States.
