“Operators like the tool a lot,” says Charles.
They immediately appreciated:
• Rugged engineering and construction of the Die-Hard and its brushes for a better clean, higher uptime, lower repair costs.
• Automatic feeding unit: Roughly the same automatic feeding speed as his older unit.
• No broken cables and very minimal maintenance required for Elliott’s Die-Hard.
“All we do is replace the consumable items due to wear and tear and the ruggedness and dependability of Elliott machines and hoses mean they last the whole, annual season,” said Charles. This means the University avoids the approximate $400 cost in parts and labor that would inevitably happen with each use of their previous machines.
The Elliott system is “much more reliable than our previous supplier’s and the Die-Hard’s brush with actuator does a lot better job cleaning our tubes.”
On top of the improvements in uptime and the more efficient cleaning of tubes with the Die-Hard, “Elliott’s service has always been good and reliable and replacement parts and consumables are available if we need them,” said Charles.
Charles is very pleased with his Die-Hard Tube Cleaner and the time and money that he has saved his operators and the University of Texas at Austin.
