Staff polishes skills on new equipment

Pipehunter Training 08-edited

Public Works employees received training on a new piece of equipment last month.

Instructors from Key Equipment were on hand to provide classroom training and hands-on training on a new PipeHunter Jet/Vac Trailer.

The multi-use machine:
• Cleans sanitary sewer, storm sewer and other pipelines by utilizing high pressure water “hydro-jetting” to scour the internal surface of the pipeline;
• Vacuums debris from storm sewer inlet structures, sanitary sewer manholes and associated water and wastewater pits and vaults at the wastewater treatment plant;
• Features a “hydro-excavating” tool which allows the operator to excavate soil by using the vacuum feature to remove the soil and high-pressure water to loosen the soil being excavated..

The jet/vac trailer also improves operator production and efficiency in the field by reducing risk of damage to nearby underground buried utilities during excavating projects. It also will be used in the water operations to remove debris from valve boxes and water meter pits as well as during water service upgrades.
