LONG ISLAND, N.Y. — (August 3, 2011) Thomas C. Wilson, a longtime leading manufacturer and provider of tools and accessories for the cleaning and maintenance of heat exchangers, boilers, HVAC equipment and applications, has selected the Wils-Away™ 1500 Electric Tube Cleaning System as its seasonal showcase product. The heavy-duty Wils-Away™ quickly removes scale from large-diameter straight tubes in fire tube boilers, condensers and heaters. 

“Summer is the best time for boiler maintenance because the heating season has ended and the cooling season is in full swing,“ said Stephen Hanley, COO and president of Thomas C. Wilson. “The Wils-Away™ ensures quick cleaning, as well as efficient, low-emission boiler operation in the coming year. Now is also a great time to buy because anyone who purchases the Wils-Away™ 1500 by August 31, 2011, will be entered in a drawing to win an Apple iPad.”

Economical and easy to use, the Wils-Away™ includes an electric drive unit for fast and thorough cleaning of tubes measuring 1 to 4 inches in outer diameter. The expanding, heavy-duty brush shaft and casing rotate at a high speed of 1,725 revolutions per minute — ideal for eliminating soot and cutting through the hardest scale in just one pass. The system includes all the necessary tube-cleaning tools and accessories: a detachable dolly, built-in toolbox, foot pedal, 25-foot flexible shaft and casing, vacuum connector nozzle, brushes and complete instruction manual.
