X-Tip chains are designed for aggressive removal of tuberculation and lime scale build up in pipes with a diameter ranging from 32 mm to 200 mm (1 ¼" to 8"). This chain is meant for cleaning cast iron and vitrified clay pipes.
This model has no crown drill head, so it is more suitable for descaling than blockage removal, and the absence of a drill head allows the chain to handle multiple bends without biting into wall of the pipe as it navigates through a bend.
The chain is lightweight, and uses centrifugal forces to center the tool in the pipe. This ensures that the entire inner surface of the pipe is cleaned quickly and easily.
Depending on the size you choose, the chains could have 1 - 3 stainless steel chains with varying lengths which have fused hardened metal teeth. The chains are adjustable and mount quickly on 1/4" (6 mm), 5/16" (8 mm), 3/8" (10 mm) or 1/2" (12 mm) diameter flexible shafts.
The X-Tip is suitable for grinding cast iron, concrete, copper, clay and steel pipes; however, due to its aggressive nature, we do not recommend using this chain with PVC (ABS) pipes.
