The MiniVac system is a lightweight, aluminium, hand portable vacuum recovery system for the collection of spilt oils and floating contaminates. The MiniVac employs safe diesel driven units with a unique ability to split into 2 parts for ease of handling. The modular system is available in three standard formats: MiniVac Basic - a complete operational system comprising MiniVac, vacuum receptor, hoses and suction lance. MiniVac Plus - an enhanced system, including all the MiniVac basic equipment with an additional Mini transfer pump unit to empty the vacuum receptor to discharge. MiniVac Plus Containerised - a custom built container housing all MiniVac Plus components. Each MiniVac system has been designed to enable rapid clean-up in inaccessible areas and has a recovery rate of 24m3/hr.
