For technical and sanitary reasons, Sewer cleaning equipments is frequently cleaned.
Particularly, the blocking of the cross sections as well as odour problems need
to be avoided. Also, damages at the channel walls must be recognized very
early, which is only possible, if the walls are completely clean. Further,
inorganic deposits that reduce the sewage treatment efficiency must be removed.
Sewer jetting / drain jetting / gutter
cleaning is the process of using sewer
cleaning equipments to bring a sewer
drain line back to like-new condition without having to actually replace
the line. This is very cost-effective practice, as well as a nearly effortless
task- especially for sewer cleaning
that are heavily used, even for grease. (You aren't supposed to be dumping that
down there in the first place!).
Anyone, who has ever had to deal with a sewer or even residential septic tank,
knows all about clogs and back-ups. Soap scum residue, grease, hair, food,
mineral deposits and more can all cause a drain to back up. As much as people
try to be careful with what they send down the tube, it is almost inevitable
that these things will at some time pass through eventually causing clogs. Even
as careful as you are with grease- you may not directly dump it down the drain-
but the remaining grease on pots, pans and plates can cause a film that over
the years can build up and solidify. Sometimes a simple unclogging could do but
after masses of build-up and too frequent blockages, perhaps a good sewerjetters would be a more effective
method that will also last plenty longer.
Pressure Jet's sewer cleaningequipments are completely suitable to
achieve all above cleaning results, because these pumps are rugged in
construction, have medium speed and perform to the entire satisfaction of the
There are special high pressure piston
and plunger pumps, designed specifically for this purpose, called sewer jetters. They can clean the pipes
leading from sinks and bathtubs leading to the tanks, even those at long
distances, which is especially helpful in the case of industrial piping. The sewerjetters work at a high pressure,
between 150-300 bar and 12-70 lpm. The pressure can be adjusted throughout the
job as needed. These sewer cleaning
equipments use a special nozzle that gets down into the drains to loosen
and cuts the clogged materials that are obstructing the pathways. This
essentially scours the pipes clean and then washes the debris back up to be
removed, usually through a vacuum pump.
These kinds of systems are successfully running in different municipal
