Airnesco is a group of companies formed in 1947 that specialises in the design and manufacture of a complete range of unique compressed air operated products to cover most tube and plant cleaning applications. An addition to the group in 2001 introduced the design and manufacture of specialist tooling for the window industry.

Industrial Tube Cleaning


The Industrial Tube Cleaning product range has been in production for more than 50 years and provides high quality, air operated, inexpensive cleaning solutions for most tube cleaning applications.

The Ferret uses an exclusive two-way vibratory action to propel the brush through the tube without the need for manual pulling or pushing. At the end of the tube the action is reversed automatically and the brush returns to the operator. The Ferret can be used in Vertical or Horizontal Shell Boilers, Fire Tubes, Waste Heaters and all tubes that have deposits. A vacuum attachment or Y-Piece can be added to the Ferret and attached to a vacuum to aid the extraction of the deposits.

The Percussion Lance is powerful, fast and highly efficient. It cleans combustion deposits from economic, waste-heat and water-tube boilers, economizers and condensers without brushes. The Percussion Lance can also be used for Gas Turbines, Castings, Cylinder Blocks, Blast Furnaces, Cupulas, Shipping, Tar Distillers, Gilled Economisers and Paper Mills or any application that needs a powerful burst of air to clean or clear.

The Air Water Gun cleans condenser tubes with just air and water or the use of bullets. It can also be used for Water Tube Boilers, Air Heaters and Superheaters.

The Bunker Lance is a lightweight percussion lance used for the safe clearing of choked or blocked Coal Bunkers and Feed Hoppers. The Bunker Lance will unchoke any material including iron ore, coal, feed stuffs, etc...

The Snuffer Lance is especially designed for the oil industry to rapidly extinguish small fires. It can also be used for Chemical Clearing, Sterilisation and Vehicle and Plant Cleaning.

A wide range of Brushes and Bullets are available, usually from stock.

We are still working on getting our biomass boiler up to snuff, but we cleaned the fire tubes a few weeks ago and the Ferret tool worked like a champ! Using it reduced our cleaning time exponentially and made the job much cleaner as well! My team and I are happy to have it! The customer service we've received from Airnesco was superb, all the way from tech support to parts supply.

Thanks for all your help and support. The time and continental differences didn't seem to faze the timing in receiving help from you...pretty cool!

We would just like to pass our thanks on to you for the continued good service that we receive from yourselves and your equipment. You continue to provide us with a professional and friendly service. The barrel cleaning gear works very well and it is very reliable; we have never had any issue with it for all its time in service; it has kept our barrels clean to a high standard ensuring that coppering is removed effectively and without causing any undue wear. Perhaps the best compliment that we can pay is that we never hear any complaints from the gun maintainers regarding it.
