Operating the System

operation

The system only requires one operator and can be rapidly assembled and dismantled since it uses quick connect hose couplings throughout.

The ferret can be placed into the barrel either breech or muzzle ends and it then travels along the barrel and on reaching the other end of the tube the brush direction is reversed and it returns down the barrel to the operator. The average cycle time is one minute for a double pass.

Recommendations

"During the evaluation and trial period using the Airnesco Bore Cleaning System, we found it to be an outstanding cleaning device for Artillery and tube related items that we work on at the DOL Artillery repair shop. The old manual system of cleaning gun tubes that requires bore scoping would take a normal four man gun crew approximately one hour or more to clean one tube. With the Airnesco Borer Cleaning System, one man takes approximately ten minutes to clean that same tube. At the DOL, the resulting saving in terms of manpower is cut by 75%... As the Maintenance Manager, I would strongly recommend the Airnesco System to any Maintenance activity that repairs artillery weapons or barrel tube related equipment. It is highly efficient and effective and will increase your production." Maintenance Manager - Ft. Sill DOL
"I have received great reviews for your company's Bore Cleaning system. It greatly reduced the amount of time it takes to clean the howitzer tubes and does an excellent job removing carbon deposits... The Bore Cleaning system would be a great tool to have at the battery levels, because it requires less man power, it greatly decreases the cleaning time and the howitzers sections can conduct a more detail inspection of the tubes. Thank you for your support!"OPERATIONS NCOIC - FA Unit
"a very good product that he wishes to demonstrate so that the Users (war fighters/maintainers), have a better understanding of what is available or will be in the very near future. Please provide him an opportunity to demonstrate his product. You won't be disappointed."PM-HBCT
