Line Jetting Services

You might be looking for a line jetting company to clean out the corrosion or buildup in your sewer or waste pipes.

Line jetting a pipe

“Line jetting is one of the most dangerous jobs that can be done with the Hydro-clean,” shares Tom Wendler GM of AWS Pennsylvania.

Maybe you’re a commercial food manufacturer with food waste clogging the pipes. Maybe you are a commercial laundry operation where water flowing through the pipes is necessary to stay on schedule. Or perhaps sludge is blocking a series of waste discharge pipes in your production line.

When the sludge is blocking your pipes, Advanced Waste Services has the experience and equipment to properly unclog your pipes with high-pressure line jetting.

Experience in Line Jetting

Getting production back online is the most important aspect of a line jetting project. The two questions we get asked most by clients are:

  1. “Are you able to unclog these pipes?”
  2. “How long is it going to take?”
"You can see this line doesn't have a handle lock to prevent it from coming back at you. You'll need to attach that before you use it," shares Tom Wendler.

“You can see this line doesn’t have a handle lock to prevent it from coming back at you. You’ll need to attach that before you use it,” shares Tom Wendler.

But before I answer these questions, just about every line jetting project is filled with risks.

  • If you don’t have the right experience navigating a jetting line through a small, 2 inch wide pipes that twists and turns, it could fire back at you, leading to a serious injury.
  • If the operator doesn’t have the appropriate tools for jetting, including different tips for large and small diameter pipes this could extend the completion time leading to a missed production deadline.
  • If the operator doesn’t have the appropriate water lines, pressure could decrease from 15,000 psi to 11,000 psi, resulting in a longer period to unclog the pipe and adding cost to the project.

At Advanced Waste Services, we’ve been jetting lines for manufacturing clients of all kinds, through all kinds of materials and wastes. From hazardous to non hazardous, from chemicals manufacturers to food manufacturers.

  • This line jetting experience has allowed us to determine if we have the equipment necessary to unclog the pipes, clean the equipment and reasonable estimate how long its going to take, and above all – perform line jetting safely.

Equipment Designed for Line Jetting

The high-pressure water blaster connects to a line jetting tip, sometimes called a hand lance. This is absolutely necessary to unclog pipes.  Because we own our high-pressure water-blaster, we eliminate the risks of rental equipment failure, in-experienced operators damaging equipment and hurting themselves, and poorly estimated completion times. These are all risks that could result in not meeting a client’s deadline to get production running again.

The high pressure water blaster we use is powered by a diesel engine that creates 15,000 psi.  Unlike the gun used to water blast tank walls, a hand lance is used with the trigger being a footbox that allows the operator to control the hand lance with two hands.  

You ideally want a max pressure at 15,000 psi, but there’s several factors that lower the pressure that you need to prepare for.  There’s also several factors that create very dangerous situations (also explained in the video above).

Line jetting and pipe jetting are inherently dangerous projects.  Clients trust us to perform safely while in their facility and we provide extensive training before an operator is allowed to perform line jetting services.
