Applications Overview

Sewer And Drain Cleaning: Typical jetting pressures range from 1200 to 4000 PSI with relatively high
flow rates to flush away debris. High thrust capabilities are also sometimes needed for pulling the jetting
hose long distances. The spray patterns are determined by line conditions.
All nozzles are custom drilled based on your pump’s flow and pressure specifications resulting in optimized equipment and cleaning performance.

Food Manufacturing Plants: Plants that use a piping system to move products and materials through
the manufacturing process need to thoroughly clean and sanitize the process piping whenever a product
changeover occurs. Aqua Mole nozzles have been found to be effective tools for reducing production
line down time.
Our Rotor Jet nozzles offers a 360° spray pattern that allows for quick and
efficient cleaning of the lines between batches of different ingredients.

Hydro Drilling: Using the technology of high-pressure water to bore holes through soil or rock, hydro
drilling nozzles typically use spray patterns with multiple forward jets ranging from 0° to 25°. Rear jets
can be added to nozzles being used for oil exploration applications. Aqua Mole’s Button Nose nozzles
are ideal for this application. Post holes and access channels are also suitable applications.

Operating Sugestions

Cleaning the line from a downstream access point: The most effective way to clean a drainage
line is to access the pipe from a downstream location, and to allow the rear jets to propel the nozzle
up the line. Typically, a
Thruster nozzle is used in this situation depending on how long the
line and how far the hose must go to complete the job. The front jet will bore a hole through soft
blockages and if the drain was plugged, you will see a surge of water that flows down the pipe when
the blockage has been relieved. Allow the hose to travel a few feet further up the line and then
slowly pull the hose back while still under pressure, taking from 3 to 5 times as long to pull the hose
back as it took to get to the blockage in the first place. The rear jets that propelled the hose up the
line will further clean the line on the pull back.

 

Cleaning the line from an upstream access point: If the operator does not have access to a drain
line from the downstream end the only alternative is to clean the line from the upstream access point
and to push the debris forward. If the blockage is soft, less than a foot in length and relatively close
to the access point (within 15 ft.), a
Flusher nozzle may be enough to “ram” through the
blockage. The use of auxiliary water released from kitchen sinks, utility tubs, or bathtubs will help to
further clear the line and wash the debris out to the main sewer connection.

 

If the blockage is more extensive, a nozzle with 3 front jets at 10° and 6 rear jets at an angle
anywhere from 15° to 45° may be better suited to the task of pushing the debris forward.

 

Note: As the angle of the rear jets decreases from 45° down to 15°, the distance the nozzle can travel increases.
