Operating the System

operation

The system only requires one person and can be rapidly assembed and dismantled, using quick release couplings throughout.

The brush is secured to the ferret and controlled by a foot valve. Air is delivered via a filter lubrication unit.

The ferret can be placed into the barrel breech or muzzle end, it travels along the barrel and on reaching the other end the brush travel is reversed and it will automatically return down the barrel towards the operator.

The average cycle time is one minute for a double pass. Compressors can be provided for the Airnesco System - please contact us for more details.

Recommendations

"It saves so much time, nobody liked doing the job before, now we just connect the airline from a truck and it's all over in minutes." MOD - Larkhill
"This is to thank your company for the assistance given during our investigations to source a pneumatic cleaning system for our 155mm and 105mm artillery equipment barrels. During demonstrations users have been impressed by the efficiency of the system and the time saved on completing what is currently a manpower intensive task." MOD - DLO Andover
"During the complete trial period your equipment performed very well. The equipment has been used when we maintained the gun. It created a great interest and the user asked for your address to be able to contact you. As we were operating in the terrain all the time, we had to use compressed air from the towing vehicle and that performed very well."Bofors Defense
"The equipment itself was considered to be an unqualified success as it not only cleaned the bore effectively but also achieved this with less effort than the normal method. In addition, many man-hours were saved during an intensive period of firing. It is recommended this equipment be supplied to all 4.5 Mk 8 fitted ships as soon as possible and it is requested that the ship be allowed to keep the current equipment until the production model becomes available. Your assistance in providing the Ferret at such short notice and your obvious enthusiasm for the equipment is greatly appreciated."Royal Navy - HMS Cardiff
