ARG series: external thread cleaners

ARG-series External Thread Cleaners are specifically designed for studs and bolts with size M8 up to M230. The cleaning heads are available in various adjustable models that will all cover a certain range of bolt sizes. Its clever design allows the operator to easily change the internal diameter, making it a versatile solution that is not limited to just one specific bolt size. The spring-loaded system ensures that there is always the right amount of pressure on the thread and shaft of the bolt. The vertically placed round brushes reduce the amount of friction between the cleaning head and thread, making the ARG series the most comfortable thread cleaner on the market.

Non-standard sizes are available on request.
