Bleeder Cleaner / Rod-Out Tools
Trust A & W Devices’ Bleeder Cleaner / Rod-Out Tools to safely and efficiently clean clogged bleeder, drain, vent, and instrument tap valves while containing process material as directed by government regulations for environmental and personal safety. The tools eliminate the hazards of dangerous fires, spills and vapor releases while performing these tasks.
Our 90 & 60 Degree Bleeder Cleaners use a thicker wall tubing than some of the other products on the market. We use a .049 wall tubing that helps to reduce the tool from getting bent “the Don’t Get Bent tubing” while using the product.
Our New Generation Bleeder Cleaner uses a compression fitting to connect the tubing to the body for easy field replacement. Repair kits include drill bits, rod, cable, and tubing to ensure any internal damage that could have been done will also be safely addressed.
Environmental and Personal Safety
Rod-Out Tools prevent personnel exposure, vapor releases, explosions, and fires. They are designed for use when bleeder valves, vents, drains and instrument taps must be cleared during normal operating conditions.
