Empire Pipe Cleaning has been providing pipeline cleaning and maintenance services to Municipalities, Sanitation Districts, and Contractors since 1975.  We have a fleet of combination cleaning trucks that have the capability to clean and vacuum mainline sewers, storm drains, wet and dry wells, lift stations, catch basin and storm drain culverts.

The fleet of combination trucks manufactured by  VAC-CON or Vactor are typically equipped with 600’ of 1” diameter sewer cleaning hose capable of producing water pressures up to 2500 psi at 80 gallons per minute.  Water tank capacity is up to 1500 gallons. Depending on the application, the trucks are equipped with positive displacement blowers or 3 stage fans in combination with 10 yard debris tanks.  We have additional units equipped with 1200’ of sewer line when remote or easement locations require longer reach.

EPCE has developed the proper selection of sewer cleaning tools and we employ the latest technologies available. Each truck is equipped  with the proper selection of penetrating nozzles, various angled jet nozzles, spinner nozzles, root saws, large diameter pipe cleaning nozzles, and high RPM chain flails.

Safety comes first!  Each truck is manned with a two-person crew.  Traffic control procedures are in accordance with the guidelines of the WATCH Manual.  Each truck is equipped has beacons, arrow boards, traffic cones, flashers, and appropriate safety signs and flags.
