2400 Gallon Drain Beaver

2400 Gallon Drain Beaver

Client:  Black Sluice Internal Drainage Board

The Black Sluice Internal Drainage Board is the authority set up to control water levels and reduce the risk of flooding within the Board’s area.  It operates 34 pumping stations and maintains 500 miles of watercourses throughout Lincolnshire.  The tanker is used for jetting out drainage culverts up to 48” in diameter.  This helps to prevent flooding thus reducing the massive costs associated with flood damage.

Before Black Sluice approached Major, all jetting works were subcontracted to private operators.  Taking this work back in-house has resulted in increased efficiency and has allowed a greater number of drain blasting operations.

Design Details

  • 2400 gallon low ground pressure tanker
  • Hydraulic retractable jetting reel and plough jet nozzle
  • A powerful water pump that delivers 280 l/min at 205 bar pressure

Testimonials


We needed to improve our efficiency and reduce costs by not having to bring in outside contractors for these tasks. Having the Major 2400-gallon drain beaver onsite gives us more flexibility and we are not waiting for a gap in contractor’s diary. We can also keep on top of work by jetting more often. Alan Tomlinson from Major was very professional throughout the process.
