Pipe Parana Fitting Removal Tool
This pipe fitting removal tool is specially designed to remove ABS, PVC CPVC and lead pipe fittings from the outside of the pipe to which it is attached so that a new fitting may be chemically bonded to the existing waste pipe. The Parana removes the broken fitting shoulder and leaves the male end of the pipe to re-reuse or re-glue.
The pipe fitting removal tool will help make the removal of these applications a cinch:
Rusted Metal Flanges
Separated Metal Flanges
Female Pipe Fittings
How To Use The Parana Fitting Removal Tool
Clean and or remove an irregular or broken pipe to create an even surface for the Parana to start the removal of the remaining plastic fitting shoulder.
If the pipe is surrounded by cement to the edge of the pipe, remove the cement to allow the cutting blades to spin free without touching the concrete. One inch of relief is enough space.
Make sure the inside of the pipe is not oval or has glue streaks inside to impede the guides. If the pipe is oval, the Parana tool will not work. Remove any obstruction before drilling.
Check guide clearance in depth, remove bottom guide if necessary.
Insert tool into pipe, making sure cutter teeth are in contact with the material to be removed. Start the drilling process with the drill on low speed. Use caution at all times. Be sure you periodically stop the operation to let the pipe cool, remove shavings and inspect uniformity of the removal operation. Adjust angle and pressure if necessary.
When the Parana tool has finished the removal process, the tool will "fall" or "bottom out". Pipe will be ready to re-glue or reuse.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Will the blades wear down?"
A. Although the blades are very durable, they do wear over time (like any type of cutting tool). However, you can simply use a file to sharpen them.
Q. "Do you offer any tools that will remove pipe from the inside of fittings?"
A. Yes, please see these PVC savers, which are great tools for repairing fittings that have pipe broken off inside of them.
Q. "What does schedule pipe mean? schedule 40? schedule 80?"
A. The pipe schedule refers to the pipe wall thickness. The higher the schedule, the thicker the pipe wall. For example:
• 2-inch nominal size pipe: schedule 40 has a wall thickness of 0.154 inches and schedule 80 has a wall thickness of 0.218 inches.
• 4-inch nominal size pipe: schedule 40 has a wall thickness of 0.237 inches and schedule 80 has a wall thickness of 0.318 inches.
As you can see, the relationship between schedule and wall thickness changes with the pipe nominal size, we always suggest double checking your pipe size & pipe wall thickness to ensure you are getting the proper equipment every time :)
