Twister Liner Remover
The Twister Liner Remover (Duo) is a specialty tool designed to remove collapsed liner. It has two front brushes for stabilisation. The Duo has been upgraded with a custom built flat drill head. The impressive new 3mm front metal panel features more carbides which are larger than the previous model, enabling it to perform collapsed liner removal for DN100 and DN150 cast iron or concrete pipes more efficiently than before.

· Available sizes: DN100/4” & DN150/6”. For smaller sizes in cast iron, clay or concrete pipes, use the Picote chains.
· Easily rebuild your Spider when necessary. Affordable spare parts and rebuild packages available. The tip of the leg will wear off with use - change legs after the 8mm tip has worn out. The Spider must always be operated with its spring leader for flexibility.
· Operate at a slower speed: Max 1000 RPM. Only operate with a Maxi Miller.
· Attach your Smart Spider to the shaft (always use a sleeve bearing). Check the rotational direction - always rotate clockwise. Position the Spider inside the pipe by manually rotating the Spider legs. Turn your Maxi Miller on (Max 1000rpm). Now start your cleaning process. Be aware of the proficiency of the Smart Spider - continuously flush the dust out of the pipe with water when in use.
Simply attach special Pipe Cutter panels & centraliser to your existing Smart CutterT. Quickly and easily remove excess cured liner that has overshot during the lining process into the main line. Cut the excess piece through the lateral. For longer excess pipe, cut smaller pieces at a time until the desired length has been removed. Powered by a Picote milling machine or a hand drill. For DN70, DN100, DN150 & DN200 pipes.
The new Ultra flex is a complete unit and is used when there is a bend just before the location where the liner needs to be trimmed. The recent DN200 pipe cutter is also a complete unit and is to be powered by Maxi Miller. Ask your reseller for further information.
The award-winning Smart Cutter is a unique lateral cutter for DN32 - DN200 drains. This unique system has successfully reinstated over 30,000 branches worldwide to date inside cast iron, concrete and clay pipes.
The Smart CutterT not only eliminates the need for traditionally expensive methods, but its user friendly and fully customisable design also greatly reduces training and maintenance costs and can also be used as an aid for robots, or for the Twister to achieve a smooth finish.
Navigating 90° bends and diameter transitions effortlessly, the Smart CutterT accurately shapes openings without accidental damage to the original pipe.
A great remedial tool, the Smart CutterT also removes lead, nails, roots, fins and epoxy slugs as well as other inconsistencies such as wrinkles in the pipe.
Achieve more with less time and a much smaller budget. Offer small drain rehabilitation from DN32 - DN200. Packages can be customised. Ask your reseller for further information.

The Sentinel is used in monitoring three distinct parts of the lining process: pressure of the, power supply and water level in pumping stations. Along with monitoring these three parts, Sentinel has a remote alarm feature.
The Sentinel sends an alert text message via the GSM network to a cell phone should there be a power outage, fluctuation of the pressure outside the limits, or should the water level in a pumping station rise too high. Sentinel settings are easily adjusted by GSM commands. Pressure data can be requested via text message.
