Mechanical Bucket Cleaning with Cable Machines
Solid debris frequently enters into Stormwater conveyance and collection systems by way of damaged or deteriorated manhole covers, joints, pipes, and service connections. Downstream Services, Inc. is able to remove silt, sand, gravel and rocks, and other solid waste by using special mechanical bucket cleaning machines. Bucket cleaning removes accumulated debris that cannot be effectively cleaned through traditional hydraulic methods. Typically, the configuration of the bucket cleaning machine is designed based on project specifications. Tools used in tandem can be fabricated, including sewer cleaning buckets, sizing rings, rock rakes, and other specialty sewer cleaning apparatuses.

Downstream Services, Inc.'s super duty sewer cable machines can muscle 10,000-pounds of pull a distance of 400-feet. This method uses a system of cables and rollers to insert specialized cleaning tools to grab and retrieve the accumulated debris. Once filled, cable direction is reversed in order to pull objects and debris back towards the insertion point. Mechanical cleaning with cable machines is particularly useful for pipelines containing large debris that cannot be removed by conventional hydro-jetting.
