50 in. in diameter) can typically be cleared in a single pass with a new Typhoon 60 rotating water jet nozzle from NLB Corp. The self-propelling nozzle easily clears blockages horizontally, vertically, or in tight elbows. It rotates at up to 500 rpm to maximize the powerful force of 24,000 psi water jets.
The Typhoon 60 is a high-flow rotating nozzle (60 gpm) with six high-cohesive nozzles. It weighs 8 lbs and is one of three NLB self-rotating nozzles for pipes of different sizes. All feature variable rotation with full speed control, and are field-repairable with a simple kit.
The Typhoon 20 is designed for diameters from 6 to 10 in. It operates at flows up to 20 gpm and has five sapphire nozzles positioned for peak efficiency: one in front and four on the sides. The body is precision-machined of stainless steel for long life and weighs just 3 lbs.
The Typhoon 10 nozzle cleans small pipes, with diameters as small as 5/8-in. It rotates at up to 7,000 rpm with a maximum flow of 10 gpm.
PipeLogix Inc., creators of flexidata pipe survey software, is pleased to announce the release of its latest module for flexidata — the 360 Module.

Ideally suited for public utilities and professional contractors cleaning entire wastewater systems, the redesigned Vactor 2100 sewer cleaner from Vactor Mfg. features increased vacuum performance and improvements to operator comfort and control, air routing and filtration efficiency and fuel efficiency. Smart Truck concept features have also been integrated on the new sewer cleaner, including internal monitoring systems that enable the operator to monitor and troubleshoot flow and pressure, blower temperature and oil level, drive system idle and open vacuum relief.
The new truck also features more wireless functions as standard, such as e-stop, hose reel pay-in and -out and reel speed control. The noise level at the operator station on the 2100 Plus has been reduced by at least 10 percent. The new 2100 Plus also features improvements that simplify maintenance, extend equipment life and increase machine utilization. The water fill location has been lowered on the new design for easier access and simplified daily maintenance.
