The Pipe Equipment range of Pipe Cleaners have been specially developed to overcome the problems associated with the removal of hard and loose internal deposits formed in gas pipes, water pipes and cable ducts. Four types of Pipe Cleaners are currently available.
Pipe Scrapers are designed to remove hard deposits and nodules. This type, which are also known as Christmas Tree Scrapers, are made up of a number of spring steel scrapers mounted on a high tensile steel central shaft. These scrapers remove deposits as they are winched through the pipe. The central shaft is fitted with a towing eye at each end to allow the scraper to be pulled back if necessary. They are available for all pipe sizes in the range 2″ (50mm) to 48″ (1200mm).
Wire Brush Pigs
Wire Brush Pigs consist of two circular wire brushes mounted onto a high tensile steel central shaft with a towing eye located at each end. They are designed to be pulled through a metal pipe to remove loose deposits and dust prior to insertion of PE pipe. They can also be used after the Pipe Scraper to remove the deposits loosened by the scrapers.
They are available from stock, for all common pipe sizes up to 12″ (300mm), with larger sizes available on request.
Wire brushes are also available to mount on the front of a Towing Head to allow the metal pipe to be cleaned as the new PE pipe is installed.
Pull throughs, also known as Squeegees, are used to remove fine particles and fluids from pipes. They consist of two thick rubber discs mounted on a high tensile steel central shaft with a towing eye at each end.
For applications where the pipeline contains tight bends a ‘flexible’ Pull Through can be supplied. This model has a chain linking the two discs, rather than a rigid central shaft.
They are suitable for use with all pipe materials and are available in…
Duct Brushes are used to remove dirt and other loose debris from inside electrical or communication ducts.
They are supplied either with an eye at both ends for pulling through ducts, or with a M12 fitting for pushing through ducts using a Cobra (Flexible Fibreglass Rod).
They are available to suit ducts from 2″ (50mm ) to 16″ (400mm).
