City living would be practically impossible if municipalities did not have an efficient system in place to clear out sewer lines, storm drains, catch basins etc. and keep the community safe. Though there are multiple ways of doing this, combination sewer cleaning machines, or combo sewer/jetters, do the most effective job cleaning sanitary and storm sewer lines.
Unlike cabling, for example, which cannot remove debris after breaking it up inside the pipes, the hydro jetting system carries away the debris with high-pressure jetting action. Having a vacuum excavator while sewer jetting makes clean-up at a project site simple and systematic.
It is also environmentally safe, as a hydro jet only uses pressurized water to break up clogged debris and no other material that could pollute the environment. And it not only removes materials like grease, oil, scaling, sedimentary accumulation, roots etc. but also any bacteria that may be present in the pipes.
The market for this kind of equipment is quite large, as municipalities may own 30-40 of these units. Once upon a time, combination sewer cleaners were mostly purchased by larger cities with sizable populations, but more recently even small urban communities and towns see the value of this equipment in protecting their sewer systems.
Since 1967, Aquatech has brought industry-leading innovations to the sewer cleaning equipment sector
Municipalities and specialty contractors all over the world trust Aquatech for the dependable performance that provides a safer, cleaner, and healthier environment. Their designs are operator-friendly, featuring robust and reliable components. Multiple sizes of debris and water capacities combined with various water and vacuum pump options allow customers to custom fit an Aquatech unit to any application. We also always tell our customers about the advantages of a rear-mounted reel.
Other features we love in Aquatech’s rear-mount reel (B Series) and front-mount reel (F-Series):
Dramatically decreases fuel consumption, maintenance expenses, sound levels, weight on chassis, and initial purchase price. The chassis engine powers all systems.
The B-Series includes a rear reel. The 180° articulating rear reel facilitates safe, easy placement of the unit regardless of the manhole location. The rear location assures 270° of unobstructed vision for the driver.
The continuous flow triplex reciprocating water pump is rated at 65/80 GPM @ 2,000 PSI. The triplex reciprocating water pump creates continuous smooth flow and pressure for safe and complete line cleaning.
Increases air velocity and builds instantaneous vacuum suction for picking up materials above and below water.
Makes full loads more stable during transport.
High-strength steel is corrosion and abrasion-resistant. The tank has more usable space for larger loads than any other design.
• The B-Series has a full power 360° rotating boom. The top loading boom is self-cleaning, powers up/down, and extends to 20 feet. • The F-Series offers a full power 180° rotating boom. The top loading boom powers up/down/left/right and telescopes to 14 feet beyond the front bumper. • Top mounting produces even load distribution which provides the largest usable payload capacity.
The positive displacement exhauster system allows for safely cleaning above ground or submerged liquids or solids. Multiple sizing of the positive displacement exhauster allows for air flows up to 5250 CFM.
Fail-safe protection prevents materials from entering the positive displacement exhauster and passing into the atmosphere.
Permits one-man operation of hose reel payout/retrieve and allows operator to work any distance from unit.
While the Aquatech B10 sewer cleaner was recently featured at the 2020 WWETT Show (Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport), Custom Truck One Source no longer offers combination sewer jetters for sale.
