Vac-Tron Equipment Mounted on Barges to Clean Up Water and Shore Video
Vac-Tron Low profile series LP-555 was used for oil spill clean up along the Gulf Coast. This video shows the equipment customarily used for hydro excavation and dry excavation, to locate utilities, and for other industrial and environmental cleanup efforts, was effective in removing oil contaminant from the beaches along the coast. Vac-Tron, an industrial vacuum company helped clean the massive slick off the coast of Louisiana. The company rented nearly 30 of its jumbo cleaners to a contractor involved in the cleanup effort to suck oil from the water's surface and to pick up pools of washed -up crude from beaches. Vac-Tron modified its equipment to better collect oil along the water surface and on beaches affected by the oil spill. The immense industrial vacuum machines can suction enough oil to fill 500-gallon tanks in three minutes.
