Gates Corp. has introduced the Powerclean Flush Tool, and in
conjunction, the company has embarked on an industry-wide cooling system
maintenance and awareness campaign.
The POWERCLEAN Flush Tool uses patented
pulsating technology, clean water and compressed air to scrub deeply into
cooling system corners and crevices, dislodging more debris and accumulated
Gates offers the tool to address the need for a more thorough way to
flush radiators, engine blocks and most importantly, heater cores. Extensive
chemical laboratory testing of coolants and their behavior on water pumps
showed that improper cooling maintenance adversely impacts the water pump.
Cross-contamination of coolant and mixing of coolant chemistry can lead to
premature and catastrophic water pump failures.
