WHAT VAC TRUCKS DO
WHAT IS VACUUM EXCAVATION?
Hydro vacuum excavation trucks (aka. vac trucks / vacuum trucks) are specifically designed for the suction and collection of various liquids. These non-invasive, non-destructive and environmentally friendly methods of excavation are changing the way companies excavate across Australia.
Vacuum trucks are fitted with high-pressure hoses and suction tubes, capable of undertaking non-destructive excavation and vacuuming via non-mechanical ground entry. High pressurised water is used to loosen the soil on the targeted surface while a vacuum sucks up all the soil, debris, liquids, slurry or sludge back into its tank. The liquid can then be transported to another location for disposal.
The process of hydro excavation reduces a lot of unnecessary effects from traditional excavation methods. It provides a more accurate and precise job so damages to any surrounding pipes, utilities and the environment are considerably lessened.
Below are just some of the activities produced by hydro vacuum excavation trucks:
Loosening Soil: Hydro vacuum excavation trucks use a pressurized water jet to break up and loosen the soil. The water is directed onto the ground surface, creating a slurry of soil and water. The water effectively softens the soil, making it easier to remove.
Vacuum System: The loosened soil and water slurry are then simultaneously vacuumed into a debris tank using a powerful vacuum system. The vacuum is created by a fan or blower, which draws the slurry from the excavation area into the debris tank.
Debris Management: Once in the debris tank, the separated soil and water are stored. The water can be filtered and recirculated for further use, while the soil is held for disposal or later use.
Utility Exposure: Hydro vacuum excavation trucks are commonly used to expose underground utilities, such as gas lines, water pipes, fiber-optic cables, and electrical conduits. The precise control offered by hydro excavation helps avoid damaging these utilities while safely uncovering them for maintenance, repairs, or installation.
Trenching and Potholing: These trucks are also used for creating trenches, potholes, and other excavations needed for various construction and utility-related tasks. The process is more controlled and precise compared to traditional digging methods, which reduces the risk of utility strikes and other accidents.
