Pipe & channel cleaning nozzles
Tier 4 - AquaTeq® High-End

1983 Malmö Municipality in Sweden got a contribution from The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency to perform scientific tests to set fort what was the important factors when it comes to cost efficient pipe cleaning.

One of the founders of AquaTeq®, Bo Larsson, who was a close friend and speaking partner with Malmö, was invited to participate.

Two pipes were built above ground with lengths of 80 meters in the size of 225 mm (9”) and 400 mm (16”). For each test the lines where field with 400 kg sand, gravel and stones divided over the length of the pipe. Different nozzles were borrowed from all over Europe to determine if the nozzle design had an impact on the cleaning time and total water consumption.

This was the first time the Tier 4 - AquaTeq® High-End design was introduced and tested. The JAWS® was born.

AquaTeq® High-End cleaning nozzles have an advanced water conductive design and are equipped with replaceable jet orifices for easy adaptation to different pump capacities. Compared with Tier 3 - High Efficient, Tier 4 - AquaTeq® High-End nozzles have double efficiency in terms of both total water consumption and time used. This will greatly affect overall fuel consumption and environmental impact.

The JAWS®nozzle has been the no. 1 cleaning nozzle worldwide for many years since the live test. The past 10-15 years we have added the JAWS®RC, BL SWIPER®, C-RAY®, MANTA® and will shortly introduce the SWEAGLE® in the Tier 4 group of nozzles.

BL SWIPER® Black

 

Description

BL SWIPER® BLACK is the smallest nozzle in the BL SWIPER® family and is recommended for pipe sizes from 100 mm up to 250 mm (4”-10”), depending on available water flow rate. The BL SWIPER® BLACK is designed to work with clean water.

The BL SWIPER® cleaning nozzles are developed for maximum cleaning power of sewers and storm water pipes with a construction made to optimize the cleaning effect by using the waterflow from the high-pressure pump together with the jet streams, created through the nozzle design. The water flow, through the pressure in the jets, creates a jet stream and the jet streams create increased moving power through several channels in the nozzle. The total force generated by the nozzle, air and water force, depending on if nozzle work under water or in dry pipe, is used to clean the pipe in a resource saving manner.

Benefits of BL SWIPER®:
• The water/air channels create immoderate force at lower energy level resulting in lower fuel consumption.
• Operate effective already at 30 Bars (450 PSI) pressure at the nozzle.
• Can easily be adapted for effective cleaning in water filled pipes.
• Low total water and energy consumption.
• By operating the BL SWIPER® according to the instructions you save money, wear and tear of the jetting unit and in total lessen the environmental impact.

BL SWIPER® Green

 

Description

BL SWIPER® GREEN is recommended for pipe sizes from 150 mm up to 600 mm (6”-24”), depending on the available pump capacity. The BL SWIPER® GREEN is designed to work with clean water.

The unique design of the BL SWIPER® series of pipe cleaning nozzles create the highest power at the lowest energy demand. This will decrease cleaning time, total water consumption and tear and wear on your jetting unit.

The effectiveness of a cleaning nozzle can be measured through the travelling time it needs from downstream manhole to upstream manhole. With the same travelling speed, the water jets, when retracting the nozzle, will move material faster and more effective to the downstream manhole. The inner design of the BL SWIPER® ensure long and well gather jets with incomparable cleaning and material moving power.

BL SWIPER® series of nozzles are extremely powerful. Always use extender pipe when possible, preventing nozzle from turning in pipe.

When BL SWIPER® nozzle is travelling up the pipe and getting close to the upstream manhole, slow down the feeding of the hose to prevent nozzle from jumping out of the manhole.

BL SWIPER® GREEN LARGE is recommended for pipe sizes from 300 mm up to 1200 mm (12”-48”), depending on available pump capacity. The BL SWIPER® GREEN LARGE is designed to work with clean water.

To assure the proper choice of BL SWIPER® for your work and your jetting truck specifications, always consult AquaTeq® technical sales staff or AquaTeq® authorized distributor. We put pride in supplying the right product, properly adapted to your truck specifications and your needs. When contacting us always make sure to have information about your high-pressure pump maximal water flowrate and maximal pressure as well as hose size and hose length.

If you are having problems with blowing toilets, we will happy to assist with technical and operating instructions how to work with the BL SWIPER® series of nozzles to avoid this situation.

BL SWIPER® Orange

 

Description

BL SWIPER® ORANGE is recommended for pipe sizes from 125 mm up to 400 mm (5”-16”), depending on the available pump capacity. The BL SWIPER® ORANGE is designed to work with clean water.

The construction of the BL SWIPER® is made to optimize the cleaning effect by using both the water flow from the high-pressure pump, together with the jet streams created by the BL SWIPER® in pipe.

The BL SWIPER® is developed to move material in pipe, sand, gravel, stones, and sludge. The low jet angle, together with the long jet stream, increase the speed of the water in pipe.  This design moves material faster and more effective than most pipe cleaning nozzles.

Why choose a BL SWIPER®?
• You are looking for a high effective pipe cleaning nozzle that makes the most of your jetting truck investment.
• You want to save total water consumption on each individual cleaning job.
• You understand your jetting truck will never be more effective than the tool at the end of the hose.
• You are looking for a nozzle lasting and performing for a long period of time
• You need an effective nozzle that still can be operated in a manner avoiding blowing toilets.

BL SWIPER® Red

 

Description

BL SWIPER® RED is recommended for pipe sizes from 150 mm up to 600 mm (6”-24”), depending on the available pump capacity. The BL SWIPER® RED is designed to operate with recycling water or clean water.

The design of BL SWIPER®RED is specially developed to stand the blasting effect from recycling water. The nozzle is always supplied with ceramic stainless-steel jets.

Due to the water conductive design together with the air channels the nozzle clean pipe extremely effective already at 30 bars (450 PSI) pressure at nozzle. This means lower rpm on jetting truck, less fuel consumption as well as less wear on high pressure pump, valves, hoses etc. Operating according to our instructions our customers have been able to cut diesel consumption with as low as 60%. That is a great saving and prevent you from putting money down the drain. Considering a diesel consumption of +50 liter per hour (13 gph) for a high-volume recycling truck your investment in BL SWIPER® cleaning nozzle will shortly turn into saved money on your bank account.

BL SWIPER® Red Large

Description

BL SWIPER® RED LARGE is recommended for pipe sizes from 300 mm up to 1200 mm (12”-48”), depending on available pump capacity. The BL SWIPER® RED LARGE is designed to work with recycling water as well as clean water.

Due to the extreme power of the BL SWIPER® series of nozzles, the exchangeable jets need to be adapted to working task. Depending on working task there are two different jet setups:

The standard set up of BL Swiper® is used where the water level in pipe is low, meaning there is no water in pipe or just a low level (max 50 % water coverage of the nozzle).

The standard set up is also used when it is a need to reduce risk of blowing toilets. Service lines from housing with sensitiveness to rapid air currents always need to be considered. By the proper operating technique this can easily be avoided with the BL SWIPER® series of nozzles, without affecting the cleaning power in main line. We are happy to assist with operating instructions.

If you want optimal cleaning efficiency in pipe with low water level and clean the pipe as quick as possible with minimal total water and diesel consumption, use a maximum pressure, pulling back the nozzle, of 60 bar (900 PSI). Note that BL SWIPER® works effective already at 30 bar (450 PSI) pressure at nozzle.

The high-water level set up is used where the water level in pipe is high. Contact us to learn more.
