Sewer Vacuum Truck For Sale

Sanitary Wastewater Collection Systems

Municipalities around the world are continually tasked with cleaning and maintaining their sanitary wastewater collection systems. These systems are typically a network of pipes, manholes, cleanouts, traps, siphons, lift stations, catch basins, culverts, and other structures. They collect wastewater (sewage), stormwater, and solid materials from an area and transport it to a plant for treatment or disposal.

When it rains, stormwater runoff carries grease, gravel, sand, garbage, leaves and other debris and materials into the sanitary collection system where they can build up over time. When the rainwater can no longer flow through a system because of a blockage, the material will eventually back up, causing the system to overflow into streets, homes, and businesses. Untreated sewage also can damage freshwater resources and create unsanitary conditions. This can spread germs and disease to humans and negatively impact the environment. 

Catch Basin Cleaning & Sewer Line Cleaning

The best way to keep a sewer or stormwater system flowing properly is to perform routine cleaning and inspection of the sewer system. The most efficient and safest way to perform sewer cleaning is to utilize a combination sewer vacuum truck that is capable of jetting and vacuuming simultaneously. The cleaning process uses high-pressure water jets to clean the inside of a sewer pipe while backflushing the debris to a manway or catch basin. The debris and water are then vacuumed out of the sewer and into an above-ground contained and sealed debris tank mounted on the truck. That is transported to a treatment plant or disposal facility. 

Combination Sewer Cleaning Trucks

Combination sewer cleaners combine high-pressure water jetting with a high-vacuum source to clean pipes and vacuum out blockages. This restores and maintains proper sewer flow and operation. These trucks are equipped with high-pressure water pumps, positive displacement blowers (PD) or powerful centrifugal compressor (fan) vacuum systems. They also have vacuum debris tanks with capacities ranging from 3 to 15 cubic yards and water holding tanks with capacities of 500 to 2,000 gallons. These trucks also can be set up for hydro excavation and daylighting.
