Clearflow Australia Celebrates 20 Years!

Clearflow Celebrates 20 Years!Over 1 Million Kilometres of Refurbishing and Maintaining Pipeline Infrastructure ... 20 years of Solving Complex Pipeline Issues and Problems.


Since its humble beginnings operating one team, Clearflow Australia has flourished, growing, adding specialist equipment, perfecting services and gaining a 20-year advantage.

Clearflow Australia remains a small progressive company but experienced in refurbishing pipelines, removing surplus substance, natural growth and/or hard scale build-up from the internal bores of pipelines. Solving problems that differ so much across the pipeline industry spectrum, where “standard” or “proprietary” or even the “latest be-all-and-end-all” methods will not perform and are proving to be time, financially or environmentally inefficient.

Operationally, Clearflow Australia has great flexibility in decision-making and is responsive to emergency situations, ensuring our clients receive unrivalled attention.  

Since its inception, Clearflow Australia has continued to develop and introduce unique, specialist pipeline cleaning methodology and equipment for our procedural on-site Air scouring and Pigging services, and continue to work successfully with leading councils, mining and oil and gas majors, Australia-wide.

Neil Ulrick - Senior Water Operator Infrastructure Services
Byron Shire Council


"I found your company staff very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. We had some difficult situations that were contributed to lack of information on the pipeline being cleaned and the staff were always helpful with them. This was really appreciated that the contractor would do above and beyond the contract to help use solve the issues."

Ross Palmer - Water Sewer Coordinator


“Having worked with Clearflow on an extensive pipeline air scouring project, Dave Elderfield’s knowledge and experience in the industry is very clear from planning the works, right through to the execution of the works including solid stakeholder and public customer consultation.”

Mick Hawtin - Civil Engineer

"The professionalism and flexibility shown by Clearflow to carry out this work for UGLK was a major part in this work being carried out and completed, the timescale we had in place to procure a pigging company's services was limited however David and his team responded instantly and provided the support we required to carry out these works on time and in a safe manner, hopefully we will work again in the not too distant future. Thanks for all your support."
