In tests, the PowerClean tool flushed cooling systems thoroughly, while other methods left unacceptable levels of contaminants in the system.

The engine cooling system is one of the most critical elements of engine performance and reliability, but periodic flushing of the system is often neglected or done incorrectly. Proper cleaning of the radiator, heater core and engine block ensure optimum cooling system operation and customer satisfaction. Improper maintenance can lead to coolant contamination and premature failure of water pump seals, which can void manufacturer warranty. To help eliminate these problems, Gates developed the new PowerClean Flush Tool, which utilizes pulsating technology to ensure a completely clean cooling system.

The PowerClean tool uses water and compressed air to safely remove accumulated sludge and scale deposits without the use of harsh chemicals or solvents. The tool’s patented process allows pressurized air to scrub deep into corners and crevices, and it automatically regulates the pressure to a safe level if a hard blockage exists, eliminating the possibility of cooling system damage.

In tests, the PowerClean tool flushed cooling systems thoroughly, while other methods left unacceptable levels of contaminants in the system, especially in neglected vehicles.

Watch a video comparing results from flushing with PowerClean to those from flushing with a garden hose.

The easy-to-use PowerClean tool offers technicians an alternate way to properly care for the cooling system of any make and model vehicle, ensuring that engines run more efficiently and reducing customer comebacks.
