-- January 2010; Trevose, PA General Machine Products Company, Inc. (GMP), is pleased to introduce Heavy Duty Stiff Spine Conduit Cleaners to its complete line of underground cable placement tools and equipment. GMP's Conduit Cleaners are the perfect tool for removing the toughest obstructions easily, like dirt, ash, sand, oxides, and debris, from utility conduits. These Conduit Cleaners are constructed with hundreds of resilient, oil-tempered spring steel bristles that can handle any cleaning job without damaging the conduit's surface.
GMP's Conduit Cleaners are offered in sizes that range from 2 to 6 inches in diameter (50 to 153 mm) and 4 to 5.25 inches in length (102 to 134 mm), making them useful in a variety of utility conduit cleaning applications. Their durable construction provides a work load capacity of up to 1,250 lbs. (567 kg). The Conduit Cleaners come with pulling eyes conveniently located on either end for pulling line attachment. This makes cleaning fast and easy in either direction. The Conduit Cleaners are designed to stand up to years of rugged use. They are uniquely engineered with looped bristles through the central mounting plate, rather than just affixed as with ordinary brush cleaners. The Conduit Cleaners are designed to be used in almost any type of utility conduit, including lead, iron and other metals. For fiberglass or plastic utility conduit applications, use GMP's less abrasive Stiff Spine Conduit Brushes.
The durability and wide range of sizes has made the GMP Heavy Duty Stiff Spine Conduit Cleaners extremely popular with utility line personnel. More information is available online at www.gmptools.com/
