The PipePik is a feed tube cleaner for sow farms that can unplug and clean many gestation stall feed tubes quickly and with very little effort.
Feed tube plugging in sow farms can be a major issue, especially during the summer months. With the humidity, splashed up water and insect problems, plugging builds up slowly making it hard to detect. If it’s not caught right away, sows are without feed and can affect body condition. Once the plugged feed tube is discovered though, how do you clean it out safely and efficiently with the sow in the stall?
The PipePik feed tube cleaner allows you to unplug and clean feed tubes while standing upright away from the sow. Attached to a cordless drill, the PipePik spins a steel brush up past the curve of the feed tube where the vast majority of plugging occurs. Its handle allows you to maneuver around head gate rods to quickly get to the tube without disturbing the sow.
Running the PipePik cleaner with a cordless drill through each feed tube a couple times a year in your sow farm can eliminate feed tube plugging because it smooths out the inside of the feed tube where feed tends to build up. Its contoured design is easy to operate and works on virtually all sizes of drop tubes.
The PipePik is sure to remove your rust, dust and crust!
