A New Air-Conditioning Pipeline Cleaning Robot System
Presently most of the air-conditioning pipeline cleaning robots in the market do not have the self-adaptive capacity to variable diameter pipelines, and clean the circular pipeline incompletely, have the whipping problems in the working process. For this case, this paper developed a new type of pipe robot; the robot adopts the umbrella-like open-and-close mechanism, scissors lifting mechanism and tail location and navigation device. It can align the center of the circular pipes with different diameters automatically, and sweep 360° one-time, improve the efficiency and stability of the robot greatly.
