Sewer Services High Pressure JetVac Vacuum Tanker

Sewer cleaning is carried out by our 2600gal, High Volume Combination Tanker unit mounted on a 26t gvw Scania chassis, operating in either jetting or suction mode.

This combined effluent collection and pipe/sewer cleaning vehicle is specifically designed for municipal and industrial applications and is equipped to undertake the most challenging cleaning operations.
With a clean water storage capacity of 2600gals and exceptional water power delivered by the Pratissoli jetting pump, this high pressure, high-volume jetting unit will propel jetting tools through pipes up to 2metres diam with a range of nozzles to cut through the severest of blockages.

In suction mode, the unit has the capability to collect both wet and dry material including bricks and bottles, as well as granulated and shredded solids or compacted sewage, from depths to 30m.

With air-operated tank partitioning, clean water and debris collection volumes can be varied to suit the particular requirements.
The unit provides a high speed, versatile and flexible capability to clear pipes, sewers and culverts from 100mm to 2m in diameter and eliminates the requirement of separate gully emptiers, jetting machines and winching equipment, minimising labour requirements and keeping traffic disruption to a minimum.
