Hydra-Flex Expands Switchblade(TM) Hydrovac Nozzle Product Line
Burnsville, MN – Hydra-Flex, Inc. has expanded its Switchblade™ line of hydro-excavation nozzles, adding new options for additional product configurability. The Switchblade is now available in three body-style options: the Switchblade Ace (1-nozzle), the Switchblade Deuce (2-nozzles), and the Switchblade Quad (4-nozzles). Individual, replaceable, color-coded nozzle pills are now available in sizes #1.0 - #12.0, offering enhanced flexibility in selecting water flow rate and spray pattern for each job and its soil conditions.
“In listening to our customers, we decided to expand our product portfolio,” says Justin Jovle, Hydra-Flex Product Line Manager. “We’ve been fortunate to have had much early success in this industry, and are always open to ideas on how to apply our technology to new products that meet those customer’s needs.”
Switchblade nozzles blast a combination of (1), (2), or (4) zero-degree straight water streams, forming a long, linear flow path that is ideal for trenching applications. Its optimized stream quality results in greater impingement – allowing operators to cut through soil faster and use dramatically less water. These heavy-duty, high-impact nozzles are rated up to 3,200 PSI and are constructed with stainless steel housings and tungsten carbide nozzle orifices to withstand harsh environments and provide longer life than stainless steel nozzle tips. Non-conductive urethane coating on the nozzle body extends the life of the nozzle while protecting the safety of the user and sensitive underground utilities.
The Switchblade Ace, Deuce, and Quad will be on display this fall at the International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE Demo Expo – Hydra-Flex booth #4064) in Louisville, KY, and the Water Jet Technology Association Expo (WJTA-IMCA Expo – Hydra-Flex Booth #221) in New Orleans, LA.
