Pipes and channels, of devices for oil and gas transport are often exposed to impurities (sowdust, soot, grease, products of oil oxidation, crust of oil or scale, etc) that remain after poor quality filtration or are accumulated from the fluid that is being transported. The accumulated impurities reduce the flow cross section and increase pressure loos. The consequences are as following: low efficiency, frequent break downs, increased expenses etc. By rinsing the sediment, a more reliable operation of the hydraulic devices is achieved. The aim of this paper is to consider and present the rinsing procedure and to establish criteria for choosing the most suitable cleaning regime (optimal flow parameters and rinsing time).
