High pressure sewer jetting is method of cleaning sewer & drain lines using high pressure water. An engine or Electric power source powers the high pressure water pump that produces water under pressure. All high pressure jetting units are rated as to Pressure (PSI) and Water Flow (GPM / LPM).
Water from the high pressure pump is delivered to a hose reel containing high pressure jetting hose matched for the pressure and flow of the system. When a nozzle is attached to the end of the jetting hose, pressure is created within the system. Nozzles are sized to match the design out of the engine & water pump plus factoring pressure loss due the diameter and length of the high pressure jetting hose. Every nozzle is designed to direct high pressure streams of water to pull the high pressure jetting hose through a pipe. Angles of the water stream can be varied; water streams directed more toward the pipe wall surfaces produce better cleaning results while diminishing the pulling power of the nozzle. Water streams directed towards the centerline of the pipe provide maximum pulling power but decreases pipe wall cleaning effectiveness.
The majority of pipes that need to be cleaned & maintained and / or potential applications for high pressure jetting units are:
· To clear a clogged sewer line.
· Pipes that connect building drainage systems to municipal sewers.
· Drainage pipes are located under or within buildings.
Process Pipe & Conduits- Pipes of all diameters & lengths used in manufacturing plants, chemical plants & food processing facilities that transports liquids other that sanitary wastewater or rainwater. Blockages in process pipelines can be caused by many factors related to the process, each individual application occurrence will have unique factors to be dealt with on a case by case basis.
