BE-05 - Maintenance of drain and sewer systems - Cleaning I (DEMO)

This course includes neither tutorial services nor a final examination.

Cleaning is one of the most important maintenance measures when it comes to ensuring a continuous performance of drainage systems. This module covers essential knowledge regarding the cause and effect of deposits, and provides a strategic approach to the development of a cleaning plan that enables for the optimisation of operating costs and in particular asset preservation.

The module consists of 4 lessons on the following topics:

  • Solids in sewers
  • Cleaning strategy and program
  • High pressure cleaning / Cleaning vehicles
  • Cleaning nozzles

Operating processes in the cleaning of drains and sewers have a high ecologic and economic optimization potential. Activating this potential is the overall aim of this module. Upon successful completion you will be able to: • Describe the causes and effects of sediments. • Create a cost effective cleaning schedule with special consideration of the channels structural condition. • Identify cost saving opportunities. • Identify quality control concepts. • Develop quality management requirements.
