Vactor Services

Drainage 2000 Ltd have a Vactor unit which is specially designed to meet the demands of fast clearance of pipes, culverts and sewers from 100mm upwards. This unit is designed to clean the largest, deepest and most inaccessible of heavily silted drains.

It operates at speeds of up to six times that of conventional jetters. However, high flow rates and variable low pressures mean there is no risk to the structural integrity of the drainage system.

Simultaneous high pressure jetting and collection of back-flushed effluent allow recovery of waste from 30 meters vertically. Dry or semi dry waste can be vacuumed from distances of up to 100 meters horizontally.

The machine's unique operating features mean faster effluent collection with fewer dumping trips. An air lift centrifugal pump loads waste matter through a 200mm pipe into a 9m3 capacity tipping debris tank.

When the debris tank is full the operator simply drains off surplus liquid, and continues cleaning. This operation can be carried out several times before the need to dump the solids arise.
