Finland-based Picote has developed a range of cleaning equipment and accessories that has either been specifically designed to work in PVC or can be adapted to clean PVC without detriment to the pipe. One of these developments is the Picote Smart Spider, which cleans all types of pipes fast and in a highly efficient manner and is even safe to use in PVC pipes. The Smart Spider is designed specifically for pipes where the invert or other pipe sections are missing. The unit easily navigates around 90° bends and is available for use in pipe diameters of 4 in (100 mm) and 6 in (150 mm) when used with Picote’s Maxi Miller machine to drive the cleaning unit. It is also available for use in 6 in (150 mm) and 8 in (200 mm) diameter pipes when used with the Maxi Power Plus miller machine. For smaller sizes in cast iron, clay or concrete pipes, it is recommended that Picote chains are utilised. The tool can also be easily rebuilt when necessary using affordable spare parts.
