Description

This project involves the prototyping of a device for cleaning city sewer drains. Several spray fittings are to be placed at intervals along a pipe, which is placed inside a sewer. Pressurized air is then sent through the pipe and sprayed out of each fitting to dislodge blockage. The fitting is designed with a pressure-driven mechanism to regulate flow out a spray nozzle and then through the pipe to the next fitting. This device has been patented, but not yet prototyped. The current project seeks to create a prototype to demonstrate the viability of the concept, and to generate 3D computer models for further research.
