Using a Vac-Tron vacuum excavator to soft-dig the hole for the Placement of Headstones. They are usually 3’ long x 2’wide and 3’ deep. You can drive through the grave yard on the roads and run your hose out and dig your foundation hole using vacuum. When you’re done all the dirt is collected in the debris tank. No one will ever know you were there. This is a very clean and respectful way to place Head Stones.
Private contractors, utilities, and public works users (from municipalities to military installations), will find Vac-Tron Industrial Vacuum Equipment makes wet/dry material removal easy and efficient. Road crews can cleanup their slurry mud, remove flood mud quickly and effectively, cleanup and remove daunting spills including non-hazardous, non-toxic, non-flammable road spills. Cleanup after hurricanes and floods. Vacuum down retention ponds. Vacuum up broken glass, shredded plastic, paper or shredded aluminum and debris.
The Vac‐Tron trailer mounted vacuum system is the perfect tool for cleaning out car wash pits. By utilizing the vacuum portion of the system you can remove the oil, grease, chemical slick and garbage debris from the washout pits. Once all the debris is removed, you can utilize the high pressure water wand that offers 4 GPM at 4,000 psi to clean out the structure (i.e., walls, floor of the pits, grate overhead) leaving it clean and free of any build‐up. The Mini‐Combo Model is equipped with a jetter system which offers 15 GPM at 2200 psi. Use of this efficient tool will enable you to clean out the 4” lines that connect the washout pits so as to ensure proper drainage of contaminated water to the holding tank, if applicable.
Vac-Tron Industrial Vacuum Equipment makes manhole clean out easy and efficient for municipal public works departments. Our Mini Combo Series can clean out a manhole in seconds, allowing a reduction in man-hours for this type of job, helping reduce overhead and accomplishing more for the taxpayer’s money.
Vac‐Tron vacuum excavation equipment can be used for the application of Micro‐Tunneling and/or Foundation Stabilization. Microtunneling is used to construct small tunnels. This process enables access to plumbing, electrical wiring, termite repair, flooding, crawl space and historical restoration without compromising the integrity of the foundation. By using the “soft‐dig” technique under the foundation or slab, there is no risk of damaging any previous utilities or structural damage to the building. The debris removed will only have to be handled one time. This process would be best served with the Vac‐Tron AIR855 model to accommodate the volume of debris, as well as having the flexibility of back‐filling with the dirt that was removed after the process has been completed.
Vac-Tron - Wet/Dry Industrial Vacuum Excavation System models are used widely in the Grain Industry. Grain Elevators and/or Silo’s are the main focus. The Maintenance Department deals with `Housekeeping`. The Vac-Tron - Wet/Dry Industrial Vacuum Excavation System can be used to clean the bottom of the elevator or to clean up spills. They can also be used to free up a stuck elevator without losing product.
Fertilizer Plant Clean‐up and General Maintenance. Vac‐Tron vacuum excavation models are currently being used at various fertilizer plants for general clean‐up and removal of muriatic acid waste. It is highly recommended that the inside of the debris tank and filter housing be protected with a coating that will resist the corrosive effects of the acid. Proper clean up is a must.
Concrete Cutting Contractors use our LP555SDT for saw slurry clean‐up. Concrete cutting using a Diamond Saw is the process of cutting expansion joints on freshly paved concrete roads. After cutting, water is used to eliminate dust thereby creating a slurry. This slurry has to be cleaned up due to EPA Regulations and the Vac-Tron vacuum excavator is the preferred clean-up method. Using water to create the slurry and then using the LP Series - Wet/Dry Industrial Vacuum Excavation System to eliminate any residue. Contractors perform this application frequently for airport runways and highway repair, as well as new construction.
Vacuum excavation is fast becoming a best practice in the field of construction and site excavation. Why? Because it uses jets of air (air excavation) or water (hydro excavation) to loosen soil, instead of a heavy metal claw. After loosening, the soil is pulled out of the ground through an air vacuum hose to a debris tank for later disposal or back-filling. Using non-destructive technology can quickly, safely and economically excavate in areas inaccessible to conventional digging equipment like backhoes and trenchers.
