A complete set of tips and connectors ensures the Power Clean™ Flush Tool can be used on radiator necks, engine blocks and heater core tubes. Air pressurizes the water, which scrubs deep into corners and crevices, removing trapped debris. Where a blockage is encountered, it automatically regulates the pressure to a safe level, eliminating the possibility of damage to the system.

Pulsating technology ensures a complete and thorough system flush, eliminating the problems technicians are faced with.

The cooling agent is the “fluid connection” between the cooling system components. It must be considered as a vital “part” of the system. In addition to protecting the engine from extreme temperatures, it protects the cooling system from rust and corrosion. As a result, the cooling system needs to be properly maintained by flushing. It is important to periodically flush the complete cooling system including the radiator, engine block and heater core. A complete flush is also critical before changing cooling system service parts.

With time, the additives in the coolant become depleted. If the coolant gets contaminated with traces of oil, dirt and other harmful particles, for example, it loses its effectiveness. A complete flush is essential.

Cooling systems can be difficult to flush completely if there is a severe accumulation of debris. Inadequate flushing can even lead to premature failure of a newly installed component, which can void manufacturer warranty.

The Power Clean™ Flush Tool “water hammers” accumulated sludge and scale deposits without the use of harsh chemicals or solvents. It cleans radiators, heat exchangers, hoses and engine blocks.

It maintains system integrity and ensures warranty coverage on replacement parts, including water pumps.

The Power Clean™ Flush Tool, from Gates, offers technicians an alternative way to provide complete care for cooling systems of any vehicle make and model – reducing warranty claims into the bargain.
