Sewer Cleaning Techniques
When our team uses a truck to clean out a sewer line, our professional team combines two cleanings methods: jetting and vacuuming. Jetting is a procedure in which a high-pressure water hose with a sewer-jetting nozzle is inserted into a dirty pipeline. High-pressure in then released from the sewer jet truck to dislodge dirt and clear it away. Vacuuming removes dirt through a vacuuming system, and then solids and water are disposed into a sludge tank. We also use snake devices to break through solid waste and chemicals to slowly dissolve and disintegrate organic material that creates a blockage.
When jetting and vacuuming are simultaneously implemented, this makes cleaning more effective. Combination sewer cleaning equipment make it possible for one person to operate the jetter and vacuum hose, while the other individual stands upstream of the manhole to make sure that the hose is progressing forward as it should. This individual will also guarantee the hose has found the end of the manhole.
Benefits of Sewage Cleaning Equipment
Our effective sewer equipment release water pressure of a round 75 gallons per minute into the manhole. This water flushes out all the debris stuck in the pipe, everything from stones and bottles to grease, grime and muck. The air vacuuming system will then suck all the extricated dregs away and force it into disposal bins.
When both systems are in sync, cleaning sewer lines is more effective. The progressive sewer cleaning gear in our equipment is designed to serve as vacuum excavators. They can bring underground cables and pipes to the surface and also function for street flushing, chemical and water-spraying services. These can even be used as transfer pumps.
