Development of Drainage Pipe Cleaning Tool
The jetting machines used by Health Department of Nagpur Municipal Corporation for drainage pipe cleaning can easily clean loosen semi-solid waste but encounters problem when solid firm waste such as bricks, small stone, firmly twisted twigs of trees etc are blocked into the pipe. The available jetting system is not able to suck in or force this solid waste (through jet) to the drainage chamber, hence unable to clear the blockage. This paper is advancement in the nozzle. It presents the design and development of a cost effective multi functionary nozzle. This nozzle is a multipoint cutting too. Jet and cutter mechanism in the nozzle is used to crush the firm blockages in the sewer lines and move it to the drainage chamber. This reduces the cost, time and labor for cleaning as compared to traditional methods.
