Flex Shaft Air And Water Flushing
How It Works
GI Industries Pipe & Drain Systems, you can bore holes through sludge and debris (Dia: 1/2 inch up to 24 inches).
With our Unique Air or Water flushing feature, you can flush the debris out of pipes as effectively as a water jet machine.
Machine’s Ability to Flush Pipes With Air Pressure Benefits Pipe Drain Sewer Contractors.
Manufacturers expansion into trench-less pipe rehabilitation market gets a profitable assist from productivity-enhancing technology that can clean with water or air
Flexible Shaft Flushing Options
- Water Flushing
The GI machines feeds water through the flexible shaft, to the cleaning tool, flushing out deposits as they are loosened.
Moves debris out Faster, and keeps Tooling cool.
- Air Flushing
The GI machines feeds compressed air through the flexible shaft, to the cleaning tool, flushing / blowing out deposits as they are loosened.
Moves debris out Faster.
- Tooling Stuck / Pipe Blockage Flushing
Our machines also have a Neutral position. What this enables you to do, is this put machine into natural.
When you press the footswitch the shaft / brush will not rotate.
This action opens the value, water or air will go through the machine.
This gives you a chance, to unblock the tool, or help flush the debris away.
With blockages, sometimes air pressure works better. In these situations, a trial and experimental approach is needed.
When cleaning pipes / drains with heavy fouling like Plaster, Cement or Concrete, the water flushing option is recommended and advised.
Maximum Pressure / Water Flow
Water Volume: Standard tap / normal faucet pressure 2.2 gallons per minute.
Optional Water Pressure: 10 Bar or 150 pounds per square inch.
Compressed Air Pressure: 10 Bar or 150 pounds per square inch.
GI Industries flexible shafts are truly Bidirectional, This mean you can clean in both Forward and Reverse motion.
- Forward for drilling.
- Reverse for polishing.
- Neutral for dislodging.

Flexible Shaft Description
|Once you connect the water, The water is carried between the orange nylon casing and the metal core.
This is automatically done by starting the machine.
|The flexible shafts have a metal diffuser, that is fitted behind the tooling.|
|Once the water hits the diffuser, you get 360 coverage.
Cleans all parts of the pipe or drain, and as you brush it flushes away the debris.
This also has a cooling effect on the actual shaft and tooling.
If you are removing heavy solid debris, your tool will not blunt / burn or heat up.
