Plumbing pipelines and drains must be cleaned whether they are used in a small business or massive industrial operations. Drain cleanup in many of these places consists of dumping chemicals down the sewer every few years. In some cases, industrial sewer cleaning is a far more difficult task. The oil and food debris that is thrown every day at diners and food enterprises, for example, puts unnecessary strain on their drain systems. This necessitates the use of heavy-duty industrial sewer cleaning technology to clear any potential clogs. The issue is similar in historic residences or businesses that are situated near old woods and root networks since tree roots can invade drains and pipes and badly clog them.
When obstacles such as tree roots or a long-term build-up of oils are present, chemical remedies only have a minor influence. This is why there are so many different types of industrial sewer cleaning equipment on the marketplace currently: there is a demand for machines that can clean badly clogged drains fast, economically, and effectively.
What types of industrial sewer cleaning equipment is available?
Hydro-jetting equipment, drain snaking, and pressure rodding equipment are the three main types of industrial sewer cleaning types of machinery.
- Hydro-jetting is the technique of scouring the interior walls of plumbing pipelines using a high-pressure water stream. This cleans the pipe walls of scale, oil, and other waste that has accumulated over time.
Sewer cleaning equipment that uses this technology operates similarly. First, the technician inserts a hose into the obstructed pipe that is attached to a water tank. The hose can handle the high-pressured liquid that is pumped into the pipelines, and liquid from the tank is pressurized by a piece of specialist equipment. This hose then shoots a high-pressure water jet into the pipeline, the pressure of which changes according to the pipes’ condition.
- A drain snake is probably the most prevalent type of drain cleaning machine. Drain snaking is a simple procedure that is typically effective, particularly for household plumbing or modest commercial applications. Industrial sewer snakes are just a long spring wire with a corkscrew on the end that is connected to a motor.
The cable is put into the clogged pipeline and the cables are fed into the pipe by the motor. If the cable at the end catches any obstructions in the pipeline, the blockages can be dragged out with it. This type of drain cleaning machine is ubiquitous, although it isn’t always appropriate for the more difficult drain cleaning jobs encountered in some institutions.
- Power rodding channels, which were developed as a replacement to drain snake machines, employ a flexible metal cable that weaves into drain systems as well as around bends and joints. At the cable’s leading extremity, a cleaning head with razor-sharp teeth is fitted.
Overall, each of the three basic industrial sewer cleaning technologies has a place in different applications. Flexible shafts are also a lightweight, forceful, clean, and efficient way to clean sewers that may be used in a variety of industrial sewer cleaning applications.
