CBS Tornado Micri Tube Blowing Machine For Fibre Optic Cable Installations

CBS Tornado Micri Tube Blowing Machine For Fibre Optic Cable Installations

CBS Tornado Micri is a cable blowing machine that comprises of an air box and pusher specifically designed to provide an effective and safe method of installing Micro-tubes. The system operates on the viscous drag principle employing compressed air to install the tubes, controlled and assisted by a belt drive system.

The tubes of the Tornado Micri are propelled by compressed air, fed into the duct via a venturi principle, while the hydraulically powered belt drive system controls the micro-tubes. The electronic monitoring system provides read out of speed and distance, gives protection against duct obstructions and includes an emergency stop facility.

The system is mounted on an anti corrosion treated, sturdy, height adjustable, wheeled, tubular steel trolley. This allows the CBS Tornado Micri to be wheeled around on site The C-1203 hydraulic petrol driven power pack provides power.
