Vactor Manufacturing Introduces Vactor HydroSurge Cleaning Nozzle
STREATOR, ILL. (Nov. 20, 2008) – Vactor Manufacturing, the industry leader in sewer and catch basin cleaners, today introduced the Vactor HydroSurgeTM high performance cleaning nozzle for public utilities and professional contractors handling a variety of large pipe cleaning and maintenance applications.
Featuring an adjustable nozzle plate and water jet inserts with adjustable angles, the new HydroSurge nozzle provides unequaled traction and cleaning performance to handle the most stubborn blockages. The cleaning mode of 15 to 20 degrees removes heavy deposits from the bottom of the pipe. The propulsion mode of 5 to 10 degrees provides tremendous forward motion while effectively moving sand, silt and other debris back to the pipe opening.
"The Vactor HydroSurge nozzle can clear large sewer pipes and storm water pipes of everything from heavy debris and compact sand, to dense silt and compressed sludge," said Frank Ligori, product manager for Vactor Parts. "This is the ultimate high-performance cleaning nozzle. It's powerful enough to work underwater."
Constructed of stainless steel for corrosion resistance and long service life, the HydroSurge features roll over bars, ceramic inserts, a unique hydro-force power system and an adjustable precision flow manifold. The nozzle is available in configurations of 6, 8, 10 or 12 water jets.
In addition to the new HydroSurge nozzle, Vactor offers more than 20 genuine OEM nozzle products ranging from specialized nozzles for flushing and cleaning, to root, chain and milling cutters for heavy-duty applications.
"Whether your pipe is large, small, or broken and filled with sand, sludge, or grease, Vactor has a flushing and cleaning nozzle built for the job." Ligori said. "And our root, chain and milling cutters can handle the toughest challenges, including removing extensive root growth, total blockages and grease, lime, rust and scale obstructions."
