MicroTraxx: A highly efficient and safe culvert cleaning solution
The MicroTraxx can remove culvert drain debris up to three times faster than traditional drain cleaning equipment. When PMA first put it into service in the aftermath of the major Brisbane floods of 2011, it was to clean a 240-metre long culvert. Using more traditional culvert cleaning methods, BCC had cleared 80 metres of the culvert over nearly four weeks; putting the MicroTraxx to work, we were able to clear the remaining 160 metres of drain in just three days.
The MicroTraxx culvert cleaner is also a safety-first culvert cleaning solution – for both operators and the environment. Being remotely operated means the MicroTraxx completely eliminates the need for confined space entries, so our field technicians don’t have to enter blocked culverts to clean them.
The MicroTraxx also utilises biodegradable oil, making it an environmentally friendly option for all of your culvert drain cleaning requirements. By avoiding the use of water to remove sediment and bulky debris, the MicroTraxx culvert cleaner significantly reduces handling waste costs and results in a far more efficiently completed job every time.
As well as clearing blocked culverts in the aftermath of major rain events, we also use our MicroTraxx units to clear culverts of general debris gathered over time in order for them to be inspected and assessed for serviceability when councils are considering new infrastructure planning and developments.
