vaccum excavation slider

Typical Applications:

Virtually any excavation job that involves existing utilities:

  • Underground utility location verification
  • Advanced pre-job surveying and utility mapping
  • Vault cleaning
  • Manhole and catch basin cleaning
  • Debris removal

Description:

Vacuum excavation utilizes the kinetic energy of a high velocity air stream to penetrate, expand and break-up soil. Loose soil and rocks are then removed from the hole through the use of a very powerful vacuum. This technique is typically used to create a hole one to two feet square and as deep as required to expose the buried utility.

Limitations:

Vacuum cannot move large rocks and boulders greater than 12” in diameter.

Considerations:

  • No risk to existing utilities
  • More productive than open pit/backfill methods
  • Clean and self-contained
  • Compact applications
