Spanish term or phrase:succionadores-impulsores
From a text describing various street cleaning vehicles. This vehicle is larger than the one previously mentioned, and the equipment s mounted on the back of a truck:
"Los **succionadores-impulsores** pueden considerarse como
la solución integral de la limpieza de conducciones como
las redes de alcantarillado urbanas, limpiezas industriales
y en general todo complejo urbano y industrial que deba
transportar fluidos semiliquidos para su aprovechamiento
There's no further description of how this technology works. Does anyone have a better term than "suction-impulsors"?? I think the idea is that the equipment can both suck and blow.
Explanation: Searched "sewer cleaning machinery" and found that the equipment you described is called a "jetter". Over 40 web pages use this expression refering to equipment that uses at the same time vaacum and a high pressure water jet.
We operate with a wide range of equipment capable of cleaning and decontaminating even the most arduous of jobs. Mantanks equipment includes:
A fleet of liquid ring vaccumation units enabling us to remove large volumes of liquid waste quickly and efficiently. Whilst our jetter recycling units have the capability to operate as an air mover or conventional vacuum unit together with the continuous recycling of jetting water. If large volumes of waste are to be uplifted from lagoons or interceptors the waste can be processed on site using our mobile or static filter presses.
