Customer Benefits

The Ultimate Clean™ series of tools provides the highest degree of flexibility for virtually all pipeline cleaning applications including general and heavy-duty cleaning, ferrous debris removal as well as gauging and batching tasks.

The PETROTECH Advantage

With its slender multi-bolt design, the Ultimate Clean™ pipeline cleaning tool has excellent pipe passage properties. This series provides the highest degree of flexibility for virtually all applications such as general and heavy-duty cleaning, ferrous debris removal as well as gauging and batching tasks. Operating life is maximized through the use of highly wear resistant Plasthan® polyurethane (PU) materials. Ultimate Clean™ tools can optionally be supplied in accordance with ATE X directive 94/9/EC. PETROTECH pipeline cleaning tools are designed, engineered and manufactured in-house.

Ultimate Clean

Cup versus Disc


  • Unidirectional, medium cleaning performance
  • Due to lift-off effect, cups are recommended when large amounts of deposits are expected


  • Bi-directional, high cleaning performance
  • Superior scraping and sealing performance due to high contact pressure at the pipe wall.

The Basic configuration

Ultimate Clean


Depending on the pipeline’s condition and the objective of the cleaning run, Ultimate Clean™ tools can be equipped with combinations of different accessories:

  • Spider nose for flow bypass and debris suspension
  • Pressure bypass
  • Tool Location Transmitter & Electronic Pig Detector
  • Pipeline Data Logger

Tool Body

Grit-blasted carbon steel, coated with primer and epoxy. Flanges chamfered to avoid sharp edges, designed to withstand extreme differential pressures.

Guiding Discs

(Standard version: 2 discs, long-run version: 4 discs) Made of Plasthan® 1200, hardness 85 Shore A

Bumper Nose

One plastic bumper mounted to the front in order to protect the tool against impact; BIDI operation possible.

Sealing Discs

(Standard and long-run version: 4 discs) Made of Plasthan® 1100, hardness 65 Shore A


(Standard version: 2 cups, long-run version: 4 cups) Made of Plasthan® 1200, hardness 85 Shore A

Nuts & Bolts

Metric bolting grade 8.8, zinc-plated. Metallic self-locking nuts according to DIN 980 V.

Ultimate Clean

Tool Types

  • Basic (standard or long-run tools)
  • Gauging tool (with gauge and/or bend plate)
  • Brush tool (with spring-supported or grinding brushes)
  • Magnet tool (with standard or high-performance magnets)
  • Combinations of the above

Customized applications


In many pipeline applications, a customized disc tool design will result in significantly improved performance. Incorporating a range of customization options, the Ultimate Clean™ tool can be adjusted to suit the geometry requirements of specific pipeline systems, thereby allowing safe passage of valves and fittings.

Examples of available configuration options:

  • Special disc sizing and mounting for progressive removal of wax
  • Uni-directional discs for critical batching operations like product removal with nitrogen or water removal in pre-commissioning tasks
  • Special configurations for gate valves inaccessible with standard disc or cup tools due to insufficient gap length
  • Providing a large carrying capacity, the 2-in-1 brush/ magnet configuration, available in sizes 20″ and above, has been shown to be highly efficient in collecting any kind of steel debris

high temperature tool

Featuring high-temperature Plasthan® grades for hot media (temperature range 100°C and above)

Ammonia Tool

With special Plasthan® 1306 disc/cup materials

Super duplex tool

For highly aggressive, corrosive media, combined with high temperature requirements


Diameter configurations for pipelines with two or more different nominal sizes (multi-diameter pipelines)


Special cups with tungsten carbide studs for removal of severely encrusted debris such as scale and hard wax
