Truck Adapter for Coolant Flushing

Improper maintenance can lead to coolant contamination and premature failure of water pump seals, which can void manufacturer warranty. Gates developed the new Powerclean Flush Tool to help eliminate these problems using pulsating technology to ensure a completely clean cooling system.

The 4.5” cone accessory (Part # 91002-9) fits the Powerclean Flush Tools whip hose for larger ID coolant hoses, such as those found on trucks.

This allows for proper cleaning of the radiator, heater core and engine block; Perfect to ensure optimum cooling system operation and to reduce downtime on fleets.

The Powerclean (Part # 91002) 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.
