Vacuum Excavation has increasingly become the smarter choice for safe excavation. The strong suction power can quickly clear away material, whilst the remote-controlled boom allows for precision at a safe distance.
With an array of suitable applications for this no-dig technology, we have noted the top Vacuum Excavation uses.
Exposing Underground Utilities
Using suction power to gently pull away the material from around buried utility line has many more safety benefits than traditional ‘digging.’ The no-dig approach uses suction power to extract the ground material, reducing the risk of tools striking the lines and cutting local utilities.
Trial Holes and Buried Asset Surveys
When you’re working on a complex site with an array of utilities underground, using a Vacuum Excavator for trial holes checks the accuracy of utility location tools and provides a blueprint of what is buried underneath.
Deep Excavation Work
For deep excavation work, the remote-control operation of the vacuum boom ensures that the work can be carried out from a safe distance. The precision control ensures that the work can be completed quickly, but in a safely controlled manner. Extension pipework means that the work can be carried out in hard-to-reach locations.
For industrial sites with tanks, containers, bunkers and silos, the Vacuum Excavator can make light work of emptying out vessels. The equipment is often used to remove stored material for deep cleaning or decommission old storage units, the strong suction power provides fast clearance.
