Operator Friendly

Lightweight and easy to use, the Soot Buster reduces the time required to clean a firetube boiler or oil field drill pipe.

Lightweight (3.5 lbs)

Compact design reduces operator fatigue, increasing productivity.

Easy To Use

The operator stays completely dry.

Faster Than Rotary Cleaners

Simply insert into the tube and the unique oscillating action of the attached brush will drive the cleaner through the tube. When it senses the end, it will reverse direction and return to the operator.

Increase Productivity

Decrease downtime and clean faster with the Soot Buster’s auto-feed capability.

Decrease Downtime

Rugged construction with no plastic parts or cables decreases downtime with broken cables or shafts.

Quick & Easy Setup

Set-up is fast with no cables to arrange. Just select the proper brush size and start cleaning!

Clean In Half The Time

Auto-feed is a standard feature, allowing the brush to self-feed to the end of the tube. When it senses the end of the tube, it reverses direction and returns to the operator.
