Industrial Tube Cleaning

Airnesco designs, manufactures and assembles a complete range of unique products and accessories to cover most industrial tube and plant cleaning applications. With over 60 years experience in the industry we offer the most tested tools on the market. The tools require very little operational space, are very cost effective and require minimal maintenance.



Especially useful when space is limited, the Ferret requires only 18 inches (45cm) clearance in front of the boiler. It can clean 40 feet per minute, without spinning and without flexible shafts or rotating rods.

When attached to a standard boiler tube cleaning brush, the Ferret's exclusive two way vibratory action pushes the Ferret and the brush through the tube without the need for long extension rods or manual pushing or pulling.

At the end of the tube the action of the tool is reversed automatically and it returns to the operator.

Air Water Gun

Air water gun

Solves condenser tube cleaning problems effortlessly using air and water under pressure and, depending on the method used, it can clean condenser tubes in 1-3 seconds, that's 500 tubes per hour on a routine maintenance clean.

The tool can be used with or without brushes and is specially developed for use with condenser cleaning bullets.

Percussion Lance

percussion lance

Powerful, fast and highly efficient. Cleans combustion deposits from economic, waste-heat and water-tube boilers, economizers and condensers, without brushes.

This formidable tool blasts air at 4,500 high velocity blasts per minute, yet requires only a 6 inch (15cm) penetration into the tubes. It is capable of cleaning a 300 tube boiler in 30 minutes using a positive, finger-trip trigger which gives easy yet sure control and incorporates a safety cut out device.

Bunker Lances

bunker lance

A purpose-built range of lightweight percussion lances, essential for the safe clearing of choked or blocked bunkers and hoppers.

Without the operator having to enter the bunker, the operator remotely controls the lance to the blockage, and then applies the percussive blasts of the lance direct to the trouble spot.

Will unchoke any material including iron ore, coal, feeding stuff or chemicals etc…

Rotary Tools

Rotary Tools

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 choice of 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 design in the tube







Snuffer Lances

Specially designed for use in the oil industry, will rapidly extinguish any small fire. The Snuffer Lance has been designed for ease of use and storage. Other possible uses include; chemical clearing, sterilization, vehicle/plant and cleaning.


Brushes & Bullets

Wire brushes are employed to remove debris from the tubes and are attached to the ferrets. Assorted brush sizes up to 2" ID are size for size and thereafter 1/8" larger than the ID of the brush. A large stock is held on site.

A range of brush bullets are available to suit individual requirements. All types are stocked in sizes from ½" to 29/32" in 1mm steps.
