While combination sewer cleaners that recycle water are common in Europe, the concept is relatively new in the U.S. However, with increased emphasis on efficiency, improved productivity, and carbon footprints stateside, the makers of the AquaStar — Kaiser Premier — can see the proven unit’s viability growing. And they’re ready for it.

The AquaStar offers a combination of performance and versatility. Its KDU high-pressure water jetting pump delivers water at rates up to 132 gpm and water pressure of up to 2,900 psi. The large jetter hose reel can accommodate up to a 985-foot jetting hose. With its Kaiser liquid ring vacuum pump, the maximum air throughput is 2,390 cfm with a high vacuum of 25 inches Hg. Due to the combined jetting hose and suction boom, the vehicle can be positioned at a manhole for a sewer cleaning process that is both quick and safe. And with a large suction hose-reel capacity of 55.6 feet, tube extensions are not needed in most cases. The unique installation of the liquid ring vacuum pump in the freshwater chamber serves for cooling and noise insulation. The package is designed to reduce noise emissions while minimizing weight while delivering the required power to the work site.

“It’s a good fit for municipalities and contractors that are looking for up to 100 percent increase in line cleaning productivity with fuel and disposal savings,” says Dan Weber, president and CEO of Kaiser Premier. “Customers love the simplicity, power and ease of clean-out at the end of the day.”

With its ROTOMAX recycling system, the AquaStar is equipped to continuously clean sewer pipes as well as catch basins in poor conditions. With the flexible operation of the high-pressure system and the hose reel placement, it can even be used for hydroexcavation. Its KAISERtronic consumption-optimized hydraulic system reduces fuel consumption by adjusting the suction power in accordance with the vacuum rate. Cleaning quality in the sewer pipe is enhanced by the constant jetting hose drive with cruise control. This is all supported by the intelligent structure concept and its control/drive systems.

“Our customers love the simple, single-operator functionality and the quiet noise levels while in use,” Weber says. “We feel we have a unit that offers ease of operation and maintenance with a high level of durability and productivity.”

With KAISERteleservice remote diagnostics, the service engineer can log into the vehicle control system via modem, access all current data, perform any necessary troubleshooting, and even modify parameters if needed. Downtime is reduced to a minimum. 970-542-1975; www.kaiserpremier.com.
