AWR Racing is now carrying the Ultra Clean Tube Cleaning System. We are offering a wide selection of contamination removal systems that will serve a great benefit to racers and automobile enthusiasts. The Ultra Clean System is a process for cleaning or purging the inside the hose, tube pipe, or other thru-bores. As the Ultra Clean projectile cleans the inside diameter, the inside walls are also polished by the projectile.
We all know that small particles will damage seals and o-rings, plug journals and other passageways, cutting down on the efficiency of the system or causing complete failure. The Ultra Clean System offers the opportunity to reduce maintenance and downtime, improve efficiency of hydraulic systems, and save time and money on contamination removal efforts. The reduced friction of the polished walls improved flow and seal wear.
Keeping components clean in the dirty environment at the track is nearly impossible, making it more important to clean hose assemblies and other parts before reassembling. The parts washer is not the cleanest place in the shop and is not an option at the track. Flushing with oils or solvents, which leaves contaminations behind, is an obsolete method for cleaning when comparred to using the Ultra Clean System.
There are many applications in the racing and automotive industry, including all types of hose assemblies and system components. Here are just a few applications:
Oil Lines and components • Brake Lines and Components • Coolers • Fuel Lines and Components • Fire Bottle Lines and Nozzles • Coolant Lines • Air Lines • Vacuum Lines • Air Intake Lines • Engine Components • Shock Tubes • Hydraulic Cylinders • Drinking Tubes • Cool Suit Systems • Painting and Powder Coating Equipment • Nitrous LInes and Equipment
The projectile cleans by being pressed against the internal surface of the hose, tube or pipe. This pressure is achieved, as the projectile is approximately 20% to 30% larger than the internal diameter of the hose, tube or pipe. For instance, a 50mm (2″) projectile is recommended for a 38mm (1-1/2″) hose.
We currently offer three types of projectiles:
Ultra Clean: Hose, tube, pipe and assemblies. Removes fine particles of loose contamination and can also be used for product purging.
Abrasive: Hose, tube or pipe with build up of contamination, surface rust or scale.
Grinding: Straight lengths of tube or pipe with greater build up of contamination, surface rust or scale.
NOTE: An Ultra Clean projectile should always be used after an abrasive or grinding projectile to insure cleanliness.
Individual circumstances may require a smaller or larger projectile. If the projectile is too large it will not leave the nozzle and if it is too small it will not clean effectively. The enormous variety in the types of couplings available today could also mean in some circumstances that the recommended size is inappropriate. When cleaning assemblies, a reduction in projectile size may be appropriate, as all the recommendations are based on the most commonly used coupling sizes.
Ultra Clean Nozzles are engraved with part number and company name for quick and easy identification.
Custom nozzles made to order with quick turn-a-round time.
Tube nozzles are capable of cleaning larger wall thickness than our competitor.
Smooth aerodynamic internals for easy firing of projectiles.
Nozzle tip and Ultra Clean projectile load end designed and engineered for ease of use.
The four stock types are:
• Hose: The hose nozzle is inserted into the ID of the hose. Hose nozzles also work on pipe, heavy walled tubing and many coupling configurations. It is our most popular nozzle.
• JIC: The JIC nozzle has a male flare at the top that will mate against the female JIC on hose & tube assembies.
• Tube: There is a stop on the inside of the tube nozzle that will form an airtight seal when the tube is fully inserted into the nozzle.
• FFORX: Special nozzles designed to accommodate -4 Flat Face O-Ring style fittings. These fittings may be referred to as Face Seal, Seal Lok or FFORX

Effects of Contamination
The Fluid Power Industry has struggled to eliminate contamination in hydraulic systems for years. Manufacturers are publishing oil cleanliness standards for their machinery and components. They are mandating conformance and rejecting warranty claims on the basis of contamination. These very same components are on your and your customers’ hydraulic equipment and machinery. Research has proven that clean oil and a clean hydraulic system are the keys to longer system life and less downtime. But what happens to the clean oil once it travels through newly installed hose and tube assemblies? The particles or contamination left behind from the cutting, crimping, bending and flaring process are a real problem. THEY MUST BE REMOVED! So, lets make this simple! 80% of hydraulic system failures can be eliminated by the installation of clean hose and tube assemblies. This process starts with you the hydraulic hose and tube fabricator and fluid power distributor.
- Do you care about Contamination?
Unfortunately, there are far too many customers for hydraulic hose and tube assemblies who don’t know about the detrimental effects that contaminated hose and tube assemblies will have on their hydraulic components and systems. They do know about downtime and the related costs that a failed hydraulic system will have on the job. Remember, 80% of all hydraulic failures are preventable. Clean hoses and tubes will not contaminate a hydraulic system. All customers care about contamination because of what it will cost them in the long run if it is not removed.
The Contamination removal process
It’s simple, the Ultra Clean Launchers and Nozzles fire an Ultra Clean Projectile that is sized 20% to 30% larger than the I.D. of your hose or tube. The Ultra Clean Projectile strips out the internal contamination as it travels through couplings and around bends, forcing the contamination out in front of it. Now your clean oil will stay clean as it reaches those expensive components, preventing failures and extending system and filter life.
