Airnesco designs, manufactures and assembles a complete range of unique products and accessories to cover most industrial tube and plant cleaning applications. With 70 years experience in the industry we offer the most tested tools on the market. Our tools require very little operational space, are very cost effective and require minimal maintenance.
The Airnesco Ferret
Designed specifically for boiler tube cleaning and having been in service for many years, the Ferret has proven to be the tool of choice for many boiler maintenance teams.
Cleans from 20mm upwards.
Requires only 45cm of clearance at the front of the boiler.
Pneumatically powered and remotely operated, the Ferret can achieve a speed of 40 feet per minute without spinning and without flexible shafts.
The Ferret’s two-way action drives the attached boiler tube brush through the tube automatically without the need for extension rods or manual input from the operator. At the end of the tube the action is reversed and the tool returns to the operator automatically, completing the cleaning cycle.
The Percussion Lance
Powerful, fast and highly efficient, the Percussion Lance cleans combustion deposits from economic, waste-heat and water-tube boilers, economizers and condensers, without brushes.
4,500 high velocity air blasts per minute.
Cleans a 300 tube boiler in 30 minutes.
Finger-trip trigger operation.
Automatic safety cut out.
The percussion lance is a versatile tool that requires only a 6 inch (15cm) penetration into the boiler tubes. This unique tool is also useful for many other industrial cleaning applications thanks to a wide range of existing and bespoke attachements.
The air turbine style motor design provides an immediate and powerful startup to drive the cleaning head down the tube at high speed, removing light to heavy deposits of scale, mud and other process residues.
The range of tools cover straight tubes from .495" to 13.225" and curved from .791" to 13.225".
The tools come with a wide selection of cutter heads which are manufactured to ensure that any one tooth does not return to the same point in the tube in successive revolutions of the head. As a result, each tooth contacts at a slightly advanced point, effectively removing all deposits but preventing a tooth from damaging the tube.
