The innovative system reuses water already in the sewer to clean sewer lines, providing the potential to eliminate the need for clean water and saving thousands of gallons of clean water during every shift.
In addition to the clean water saved, the water recycling system can increase operator productivity enabling operators to clean twice the number of lines. This productivity gain is the result of eliminating time spent refilling the water tank, including the time spent breaking the job site down and driving to a hydrant or water filling facility to refill the tank.
The ability to recycle the water used for sewer cleaning maximizes existing resources and reduces operating costs, and its easy to operate. A simple switch on the control panel activates the recycling system and overrides the standard sewer cleaner system.
All components of the water recycling system are located on the rear door of the Vactor 2100 Plus, so there is no need for operators or maintenance technicians to enter the debris tank for cleaning or maintenance. This eliminates specific hazards that put them at risk for injuries and reduces their exposure to sewage.
The five-stage filtration system uniquely combines settling, centrifugal separation and absolute filtration to 100-micron particle sizes, preventing most abrasive solids from entering the jetting system. A monitoring system for the 100-micron filter and an automated filter cleaning system are included. The filter cleaning system allows the machine to operate continuously at full operating flows and pressures throughout the day.
