, for in-depth cleaning of vehicle cooling systems. The tool is universal, with one part number for any car make or model (part No. 91002). Cooling systems can be difficult to flush completely, especially if there is a severe accumulation of debris but Power Clean Flush Tool remedies this problem with ease and efficiency every time.
During vehicle services, it is more likely that only the radiator will be flushed, rather than the whole system. Gates recommends full flushes as best practice, urging garages to simplify and enhance the current process with the Power Clean Flush Tool, which minimises further complications from dirt and debris entering and damaging the system. A simple hose pipe flush is not adequate to clean the system, especially if the coolant and oil have mixed, or there is an accumulation of debris in the system.

Perform a complete cooling system flush by using clean water and compressed air with the Gates Corp. Powerclean Flush Tool. This 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 more effectively than conventional flushes, according to the company. This helps to maintain a system's integrity and ensures warranty coverage on replacement parts, including water pumps. The Powerclean Flush Tool’s patented process uses fixed dimensional control of the air and liquid flow paths. The process allows air to pressurize the water, creating a pulsating action to scrub deep into corners and crevices, eliminating trapped debris. This tool includes a pulsating gun assembly with pre-set regulator, water line backflow preventer, large rubber tip for radiator necks and direct flushing of the engine block, small rubber tip on whip hose for direct access to heater core tube stubs, and 5/8” and 3/4” heater hose barbs for flushing heater cores or engine blocks, all in a durable protective storage case with room for additional items.
The Power Clean Flush Tool “water hammers” accumulated sludge and scale deposits without the use of harsh chemicals or solvents. Pulsating technology ensures a complete and thorough system flush, eliminating problems technicians usually face when attempting a thorough clean of cooling systems, as well as radiators, heat exchangers, hoses and engine blocks. Where a blockage is encountered, the tool automatically regulates the pressure to a safer level, to prevent the possibility of damaging the system.
